Well, maybe not so simple when my dad graduated, which was over 50 years ago. He is 70 now and still runs his oil company, working 10 hour days 5 days a week! He tells me that he has worked since he was quite young. These are some of the things I remember him telling me:
He grew up on a farm and thus was a farmer.
He had a paper route when he was young.
He worked on other farms.
He went to college for business.
He worked for the state of New York as an auditor.
He had 5 children.
He bought a Oil Company, and then another and another.
He bought a restaurant, ran itfor a few years then sold it.
He bought an old gas station and added a convenience store to it.
He bought 2 more gas stations/ convenience stores.
He has bought and sold a few other buildings.
He is the grandfather of 13 grandchildren.
So from one simple man from a farm family who worked really hard over the years (and had some fun hunting, fishing, & snowmobiling) he has created a family that he loves and a business that he should be proud of.
I am so very proud of him!!!!!!!!
