While I had the car/education covered, I was expected to maintain a part time job during school. I also worked a full-time summer job. One summer my dad was "kind" enough to get me a job through a friend as a brick tender. He also found me a few jobs painting some family friend's houses in the evening hours and weekends. At the time I liked the work, but now I fully understand that he was helping build a solid foundation for my future. While I will enherit a decent amount of money in the future, I'm really not concerned about it as I intend to make my 1st million before I turn 48.
You definitely work harder than me!
