The Jobs of Ken and David’s Past – Part 1

Work experience, without a question, may provide us with the most valuable life skills and experiences that we can apply as we move forward in our new ventures, whether it’s changing careers or putting on a business hat. You could even notice that some of the strategies you’re doing today at our business are something you’ve done before, or have seen in your previous employers.
