Working Class Jobs
It's nothing to be ashamed about.
Throughout college and during grad school, I had to take a part-time job working at a retail job just so I could contribute to my family's household and also pay down student loan debt. The skills I learned at these jobs helped me become more adept in developing my entrepreneurship skills.

Sanitizers on a reel with a hook.
During the shortage of hand sanitizers, Aileen saw an opportunity to help frontline workers by creating "Hadoken Sanitizers" which is essentially a hand sanitizer that's on a badge reel. She was able to sell these to teachers who requested them and also gave them away to front line workers at the hospital and even at Starbucks - folks who cannot work from home.
