    As a 10 year old, I sold donuts door to door for a local bakery who used child labor to distribute product. I got a nickle a bag commission, which was quite a bit at the time. So I spent most of my adult working life as a B2B distribution sales representative.

    Business degrees were earned in my forties, but I was not cut out for management. It was a difficult lesson to learn. I was a business owner for a little more than 4 years & that's when I found out who I was and am today.. I was forced into early retirement & today I am finally on Medicare. Whoever calls that whatever they make of it may be blind to risk. I certainly exposed myself.

    4 certainties there are: life, death, taxes, & change, no?

    @Spencer Berrett ....I would take taxes out of there....not everyone pays them. The homeless don't.

    I was going to be a musician and/or music teacher. Didn't happen, but I do listen to music from time to time.

    @Harry Havens , I find the more music I listen to the more energy I have to move around. TV's just get you to sit, so I limit that to evenings. When I can get to my county library, I plan on starting audiobooks so that I don't have to set for such long periods. :)

    I also aspired to musician, but I decided that the lifestyle was too challenging. But I still play my electronic drum kit now and then, but not very well. But I enjoy it, nonetheless.

    You should be able to use the Overdrive library app and get audiobooks, @Ina I. Wonder . I am also pretty sure that Prime Reading has some, although I have not checked that part out because I don't like audiobooks.
    Okay, I looked at the prime reading library, and they have audiobooks, and I think that you should also be able to get some at the kindle store, and if you search from low to high price, you can find the free ones.
