• Name: Torin Bales

• Age: 50

• City of residence: Victoria

• Current title: Owner of Torin Bales Fine Jewelry

• First job: I sacked groceries at a Plano Albertsons when I was 16.

• What it taught me: I learned I didn't want to sack groceries the rest of my life, but the real lesson was work ethic. It was hard work, but it was very rewarding. I've always worked since I was legally able to.
