Terry Koehler

• Name: Terry Koehler

• Age: 59

• City of residence: Victoria

• Current title: President, CEO and co-founder of Eidolon Brands

• First job: I worked at the golf shop and pool - they were right next to one another - in Cuero's park for 95 cents an hour.

• What it taught me: Accountability and responsibility were the main things I learned. If I left the pool lights on, I didn't get paid that day. You couldn't do that today, but that's how it worked then. There was many a Saturday I worked for free.
