I was raised to believe in hard work and accepting responsibility for my own actions. Yes, I got an allowance as a child, but I worked for it. It wasn't just a gift. I had chores to do around the house every day and a few more on the week ends. It was my responsibility to get them done. If I did not there was no allowance. There was no saying it was someone else's fault. It was my responsibility. These values have gotten me through life. The people I have worked for have known if I am given a job to do, it gets done. They have known I am a responsible person. For those reasons I have had the trust of those around me. All very important in my mind. I am proud to be known as responsible and trustworthy.
