Comment on Experience or Ability – Which is More Important? by Untemplater.
I like your section on how doing something is better than doing nothing at all. That’s so true in so many aspects of life. How often are we experts at anything?

I’m always intrigued at the actions businesses take and trying to understand why things can go so wrong sometimes. I see a lot of that with the numerous startups in the Bay Area.

Whatever type of job you can get is great experience as a teen. Not only does it build character, it helps teach teens about budgeting and working hard.
