I used to think that trade workers were not legitimately all that smart.
I used to buy into the lie that society used to try and feed us that all of the smartest people had to go to school. I used to think that if I didn’t go to a four year school after that I was a loser! Now that I am older I totally realize that this is not the case at all. I think that lots of smart people are really in good trades for their careers! Some of the smartest people that I believe are electricians and plumbers! One of the smartest guys that I know is a guy named Jake who is a heating and cooling business! Back when I was trying to decide what to do with my life, I was bound and determined that I was going to school so that I could end up being rich and famous. I thought that was the only way to be happy, truthfully, Jake was a friend of mine from middle school and he was the nicest, friendliest guy around. He was also smart! I used to think that he was going to go to school to become a doctor or something and then he ended up going to the local technical school to get his heating and cooling certification. I don’t know why in the world I used to think that trade workers weren’t all that smart. They are really smarter than I am. I mean, I have a ton of school debt but they don’t have any debt at all.
