Most accurately the best skill is people skill. Communication is a huge factor in a successful team. Putting yourself on the same level with your crew can help you run a green shift. Time and patience with people can go a long way if your trying to reach your goals.
First finish school then set your goals. Visit some nursing homes and see the love many of these people need. That's why I went into working in nursing homes, because I love to cook and see the results when residents enjoy a meal. They mostly always look forward to meals, food is love to the soul to a lot of people.
Take the risk! Take the risk early and take the risk often. Especially as a high school graduate, you have a lot less weighing on you and more room to take risks. The more that you take risks, the more you're able to learn. Even if a particular endeavor is not successful, you're able to take what you've learned from the experience and apply it to the next. I believe that the more often you do that, the more prepared you are for the endeavor you really want to invest in at a larger level.
