There’s no question that Jordan Myers is a hard worker.
As a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service, the 29-year-old typically works 12 to 13 hours a day, six days per week. During the business week, Myers works about five hours of overtime each day, and takes on even more on the weekends.
Living in Memphis, Tennessee, Myers earns a base salary of around $41,000 per year. But with overtime, he’s able to bring in far more: In 2021, Myers earned over $90,000.
Myers’ work ethic is especially impressive to Kevin O’Leary, O’Shares ETFs chairman and judge on CNBC’s “Money Court.″
“He’s delivering mail for over 12 hours a day. This guy knows how to work hard,” O’Leary says as he watches Myers’ episode of Millennial Money, which was published in November 2021.
Most days, Myers walks around 14 miles. He delivers mail to up to 500 houses each day, and because he has a walking route, he’s outside all day, regardless of the weather.
“Jordan [Myers] has a strong work ethic, and it’s important to have a work ethic, because it’s a discipline and you work for a reason,” O’Leary says. “You need money to live. No one’s going to take care of you if you don’t take care of yourself.”
