Did you  know that one of Barack Obama’s first job’s was as an ice-cream scooper? Or that Vincent Van Gogh was a social worker before he took up the arts? How about Whoopi Goldberg? Did you know that she was a brick layer in her young adult years? Lastly, although not too surprisingly, Sylvester Stallone earned money as a lion-cage cleaner! I don’t know too many people that would want that job… With each case, these people started with humble beginnings and eventually became very successful. With a little hard work and determination they were able to chase their dreams and do what they loved…  How cool!
