"The first job I had when I got out of school was in sales. I lasted one day. I was like 21 or 20-something. You know, I can't sell anything, that's what I found out, and then I thought I would do (Tv broadcasting) or be on the radio, but I got a job in sales and I couldn't do it. I just said, 'Ok, I'm going back to music'." Singer John Mellencamp gave up plans to pursue a career in Tv broadcasting to pursue music.
