Join our network of like-minded people that are willing to help others and help yourself too!


If you're working on something and struggling to figure out how to do it, Don't give up. Put the word YET in your thoughts. This implies that you will figure it out..


I could spend all day advising people on how to conduct themselves, or I could demonstrate it by working alongside them.

However, there isn't enough time, so individuals wouldn't learn how to reason and act independently.

I'm going to share all the little things I know that you don't that, over time, could have a significant impact on your career.

My work focuses on the challenges I've faced and other electricians that have successfully overcome them through trial and error.

By offering shortcuts you can try and customize to your own needs, my goal is to aid you in navigating your career.


Have you heard the phrase,
"If this helps just one person, then I'll be happy."

While that is a noble feat, I don't want to IMPACT just one person, I want to help all individuals that are looking for meaning and purpose in their work lives through personal & professional development!.

It may take some time, but that's my vision moving forward.
Even If all you want to do is go to work and earn a paycheck, then this material will be beneficial to you too. However, keep in mind that as life changes, so will your desires. Perhaps someday you'll want more than just a job!

If you want to keep learning and advancing, stick around for personal and professional strategies to guarantee a more fulfilling and purposeful career.

This may be a bold achievement on my part, but I'm willing to put in the work. Are you?


Happy Sunday. I am sitting back and relaxing with my morning coffee. How about you? Whatever you're doing I hope it'll be a great day


Take the first step in moving forward in your career. If all you do is wait for things to change by themselves, you will stay where you are. Take action towards your goals, and gain momentum. When you gain a little, go after more. Owners, foremen, and superintendents look for go-getters! Deciding what you want to do is easy,doing it is a different story.


Sometimes when faced with a challenging project we tend to overanalyze the crap out of it when the best course of action is to just get in there and do it. Overanalyzing leads to un-needed stress, cost, and time.
