What is your fondest memory of something that happened in your business? by Richard Friesen

The fondest memory was “counting the cash.” My first business, while I was still in high school, was blowing glass and sales at fairs across the country. Later it was in shopping malls in the mid-west during the holiday shopping season. Every night, we would have big bags of cash to count. (I date myself because this was before credit cards become ubiquitous). What a pleasure to sort, orient, wrap and count large piles of green dollars, even though I was exhausted every night.
