You’ve assumed for years that your kid would probably go to 4-year college. But what if your kid could make more money, have less debt, spend fewer years in school, and enjoy greater career joy by becoming skilled in a trade?
Huge career potential for kids skilled in a trade
The video here, featuring Discovery Channel TV host Mike Rowe, tells the story.
(Watch for the story of the Cornell math major who left her 4-year college to become skilled in a trade. She’s thrilled with her decision!)
Some lucky students are becoming skilled in a trade and getting a 4-year degree at the same time!
And they’re doing it debt-free—by age 22! Learn how in the article I wrote here.
The video above says this about students who are aiming to become skilled in the trades:
This country’s entering a new age of work. A new age of making things, and fixing things, and building things. An age where those skilled in the trades are going to be in demand like never before.
I hope you’ll encourage the kids you love to consider becoming skilled in a trade.
Becoming skilled in a trade can lead to a lifetime of happy job satisfaction.
