Starbucks saves a career?

I don’t think Starbucks as such saved Michael Gates Gill’s career, rather his ability to start from scratch did. Here is a ex-advertising executive, possibly a former millionaire now working the toilets and coffee machine at his local ‘bucks. An uplifting story and a humbling one at that – if he can do it, then even I can do it in these troubling times. The only thing stopping one from this type of a paycheck is society and what it might think of the former successful us, now seeking menial jobs.

I say, quoting Nike, just do it.
