Last month on the show, I aired a two-part series where I was the guest on Josh’s podcast, Blue is the New White. Now the microphones are turned, and Josh will be sharing with us the lessons he learned on how to find success working in the trades. 

We’ll start todays conversation by learning why Josh walked away from an exciting career as a professional stuntman to help his father build and grow a successful multi-state equipment service company with over 50 employees. 

Next, well look into what inspired Josh to write his book and why he feels the notion that having a college degree is the only path to economic success, security and happiness, is an oversold illusion. 

Josh will later tell us what attributes and skills he feels are necessary to be competitive in the trades. 

And we will end our conversation when we find out how Josh’s defines success as a blue-collar worker.
