• Name: Dan Hiller
• Age: 72
• City of residence: Victoria
• Current title: Former co-owner of Rings 'N Things
• First job: I worked with my father at Hiller Plumbing Co. I grew up in the business, but my first actual position there was at age 23. I worked there for 27 years.
• What it taught me: I learned that work doesn't end with an eight-hour day. I'd do my work during the day but then get to my paperwork at night. I probably worked 60 hours a week.
