Many of us have had to work at odd jobs in order to make money. Working at odd jobs gives us opportunities to discover what we want and don't want to do as a career. The skills you obtain through your experiences of working at odd jobs may prove to be valuable in your future career. For example, any job that can strengthen your communication skills is invaluable.

2. Hope took dancing lessons

Hope received on-the-job training while appearing in vaudeville. To hone his skills, he took dance lessons. Hope was such a good dancer, that he took over some dance classes to help his teachers.

There numerous classes that are offered to help those who desire to improve oneself in a particular field and topic.

4. Hope entertained Military Troops from World War II to Operation Desert Storm

Is there something that you have been considering to give back to your community? Is there a charity in which you would like to raise money for them? Would you like to encourage youngsters to explore a particular career? Bob Hope was a great example of giving back to his community.
