Jim has been a Businessman his entire adult life.
After college in 1978, he worked in his father’s convenience store business in Florida. He didn’t start off as CEO. He started out as a clerk.
Jim learned the business and took on more and more responsibility as he progressed. By the time he left the family business in 1984, he was supervising all of the stores in the small chain.
So like most of you, Jim wasn’t born on third base and thought he’d hit a triple. Like you, Jim know what it’s like to start at the bottom and work your way up.
