How I Took Responsibility For How Much Money I Made

I’ve been making my own money for years. I had my first official job when I was 17. I was cleaning the streets of my hometown for a month to earn $200 (that’s a standard entry-level salary at home). I made my very first money when I was 7. When I was in second grade,…
