My First Job: As a Detroit News Carrier

I wrote a piece for Linkedin Influencers as a part of their series about people's first jobs.

Read my story about my paper route that I had in Livonia, Michigan.

You can comment on LinkedIn or on this blog post. I don't think I was, by any means, a “Lean paper carrier” or anything. This was, basically, my first business – as an independent contractor to the newspaper. Lots of great lessons learned.

I wish I had a little bit more process around what I did and that I had kept better records (I had a plastic box that I kept my money and records in). Still, it was great experience and I think I did a few “Kaizen” improvements along the way that made my work easier. How about you?
