Before You Became Famous

Over lunch the other day, on the subject of the kinds of jobs that people do after graduation while waiting for their dream-job to come along, a senior co-worker shared that he sold insurance. It wasn't easy, he said.

His first clients naturally were his family members. Back then, there was no such thing as a health insurance lead. You would have to find your own lead and do a lot of networking with friends and family, and strangers alike.

What did you used to do after graduation or before you became famous. Eh?

    Fame? None for me but I am fine. My nine to five job helps pay my bills :)

  2. I worked at a department store in sporting goods and toys. I lasted about a year, during which I advance from the bottom rung to manager, then quit. Never did become famous. Spent most of my life trying not to become INfamous!

    plop, plop, phipsiz....

  3. Yet to become famous, so I can't really give an answer. :)

  4. Mei Teng, you will be, in the field you do best now, which is food photography or photography in general.
