Advice CEOs Wish They’d Gotten Before Their First Job

12 successful entrepreneurs share what they wish they’d known before they started their first job.

Don’t let work consume your life.

Entrepreneur: Landon Eckles, CEO, and Co-Founder of Clean Juice

His first job: Pharmaceutical sales

His advice: “I think most young graduates coming out of school think they need to conquer the world, as I did. My advice to them would be to of course work hard, but don’t forget about what matters to you in your life besides your career. I wish I knew how to balance my ambition and will to succeed with my home life. I was already married, had one child and had another on the way when I graduated college. I knew that I needed to support my young family, and thought that only meant monetarily. I was hired directly into pharmaceutical sales and would do anything for my next sale – work long hours, do multiple dinners out a week with clients, and do home office work on the weekends. We now have 5 children and I realize that my family needs much more than financial support – they need my love, my time and presence.”

My family needs much more than financial support – they need my love, my time and presence.
