  1. Bobby – This episode came across great. Loveed the conversation about financial education in schools. It’s long overdue.

    Oh and your decision to quit a job to run a blog with $2 in revenue…wow! Gutsy move. I’m conservative by nature so I have the utmost respect for people to take a leap like that and pull it off. Congrats!

  2. Excellent point around jobs in the trades! ie…. welding, drafting, designer, plumber, electrician ext…. I’m an Advanced Manufacturing Engineer for a mid-sized manufacturing company and we are always looking for people that are: 1) willing to work 2) willing to learn 3) for welders, assembly or other trades.

    I agree that we need people that want to be plumbers, electricians and welders…. but more than that we need those people to want to work. My job title and degree might make me sound very successful but I have friends that own their own plumbing company that make way more money than I do. However, our children don’t hear those stories today. To do that requires a lot of work…. however, if you are willing to work hard and learn from a plumber you can build your own business and be crazy successful and while pursuing that path you don’t have to spend huge amounts of money for a degree but bring money in and start saving earlier. A life plan like that is a very respectable goal!
