10 CEOs with humble first jobs
The journey to the top often begins at the bottom, as these top executives -- and former dishwashers, cashiers and oyster shuckers -- know first-hand.

I feel sorry for anyone trashing Warren or anyone that worked their way up to be a pillar of success.
I read so much about the jealousy of these individuals...I have to wonder about the source.
We have done what some of them have done; Paper boy, cut grass, caddy, washed dishes about 3 days... washed windows, shoveled snow and other shidt...Pumped gas and grocery carry out.Picked berries, pickles and other fruit.
Sold pumpkins, shoes and a few other things......Then started a career.
Wife about the same, baby sitting, root beer stand, waitress and others...She became a CEO and President of her small Company.....I only hobnobbed with mid management , but had a decent life and we are comfortable...
Why be jealous of anyone working hard and going to the top...Many of us had the same chances.
Maybe you missed the part about starting a career....And working harder.
A very good point "Floating".....And yes I truly understand.
I've seen it with my Children....Younger Sisters and other family members.
And now with G-Children, nieces and nephews...
G-kids just moved 800 miles to keep job.
Nephew about 500 mi for "new job."
One Niece has moved 3-4 times in about 8 years, now back where she started at.
One Sister and hub, moved to Hawaii, in same job...So to speak by choice.
Yes, I am very aware of today's "Mobile Society." You are correct my friend...
But many people in the Article have moved several times also...Seems a way of life for some.
Sometimes doing what we need to do, can get us ahead of the Game...Good luck..
And also correct about how inflation and rising prices have effected this Generation, probably more then many before them....Along with "stagnation in wages."
Having regrets about life of what you did or maybe what you didn't do, can have long lasting effects on some........Eventually;
Most or many of us should take the attitude that we have done, the best we could, for our families;
Our Children, ourselves, and maybe our parents...
But eventually you have to move on, otherwise that stigma will haunt you to the grave.
And maybe an early one at that.
Well after looking through some of the show....Yes some were born with "silver spoons"....
Maybe a few were not...
But many were given a chance or pushed into reality...
Now let's see the hundreds of members of our aristocracy that started rich.
Still waiting for that money to start trickling down that was promised 30 years ago ... or do they consider the poor, the sick, and the aged being pissed on by Republicans "trickle-down" ?

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market is down today, but for the most part continues to exhibit a good bit of resilience to selling efforts. Just when it seems as if sellers are going to take control of the action, their efforts get thwarted with renewed buying interest.
One area of the market, though, that has proven to be less resilient in recent weeks is the small-cap universe. Including today's 0.7% decline, which leads all major indices, the Russell 2000 is down 1.8% this month ... More
