"I've always had stupid little jobs you know in retail and everything all through University to pay for myself. So I was very determined to not work for someone else because I've had a job since I was 9 years old being a babysitter etc and all through my teens I worked and so I started thinking I'm not making money for someone else because I want to do it for myself."
