Workaholics

I was once told that having a lot of jobs is a bad thing. But obviously, I'm interested in music, clothes, and film. I work part-time and full-time jobs like everyone else to pay bills and buy the things I like. Since I didn't go to college I found that switching jobs is a great way to learn different areas of a particular industry. I recently asked a shop owner whats the best advice he could give to someone who wants to open up a shop like his or for any shop in general. He told me to work in the field that I'm interested in first! "Don't just open up a shop because you have an idea and the money. You have to know what you're getting yourself into!" So below I posted a list of jobs I've worked for all the kids, and recent grads looking for their first job.
