What kinds of opportunities do you associate with blue-collar jobs? Do they differ from white-collar opportunities? It seems that the lines are beginning to blur. Join host Todd and guest Josh Zolin as they discuss “abundance” within the trades, managing a good work-life balance, challenging the stigma around manual labor, and more.
Josh Zolin is the CEO of Windy City Equipment Service. SchaiHi Partners is his secondary business, which is a full-fledged real estate investment firm. In 2019, he published his book, “Blue is the New White: The Best Path to Success that No One Told You About – Until Now” in order to shatter the common misperceptions about the skilled trades to today’s youth.
- Blue and white collar jobs should be on an equal playing field. The reality is the lines between blue and white collar jobs are really blurring anyway.
- One of the best ways to attract new blood to the trades is by promoting hands on exposure to the trades. As a teaser you will want to listen to next week’s episode with guest Angie Simon as she talks about what she’s doing to provide such an experience.
- If the zombie apocalypse happens, you will want to make sure your group contains a ton of your trades friends.
