This episode is fire! I get a little bat-shit-crazy and go bananas on everyone about self-motivation, not burning out, and how much hard work is entailed in this entrepreneur thing.
Let’s be honest here. This shit is hard. Being a young independent Master Electrician hustling to build an Electrical Contracting company from nothing is the single hardest thing I’ve don in my life. Period.
I’ve always worked my ass off, most of the time working 6-7 days a week, full time, holding down 2 or 3 jobs and just barely scraping by. This is WAAAY harder.
I work more, and harder, now than I’ve ever worked in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I still love what I do, but just to set the record straight for any of you young guys thinking of diving off into this…get your perspective straight. Its not sailing down easy street, working 2 days a week, sitting on an island somewhere smoking blunts and watching the money just roll in. Its 5 hours of sleep, 19 hours of work. Every day, no breaks, no vacations…just constant hustle.
Self-motivation is a huge factor in not burning out. So is loving what you do. It takes a lot longer to get burned out on something when its your singular joy in life. If you’re not the type that can motivate yourself to change the issues in your life, you’ll have a very difficult time trying to get anywhere. Don’t run around with one foot nailed to the floor. Figure your shit out, whatever is holding you back (eh em…yourself), stop giving a shit about what other people think of you or what expectations they have for you, and DO YOU!
So how do you stay motivated, and how do you not burn out? For that you’ll just have to watch the video below!

In this episode I talk about why becoming an electrician is one of the best moves most a person can make toward getting their shit together.
Are you in need of a job change and have no clue what the hell you want to do? BE AN ELECTRICIAN! Seriously, hear me out.
Being an electrician may not seem as glorifying as your average manicured desk job. Your fingernails will not stay clean, no amount of hair gel can keep your mop in place, and you will be risking your life on a daily basis…….BUT, I swear it’s the one job that finally changed my life.
Without needing a degree, or having any relevant experience I was hired as an electrical Apprentice. I started out working in a residential construction environment, wiring multi-million dollar homes. It was cool seeing how the “other side” lives, and after a little while I got good at doing it. A year in I was working on commercial jobs, and seeing how businesses and large buildings were constructed. This was a lot dirtier, exhausting work but I was intrigued at how much more advanced it seemed than just wiring a house.
After a year of doing this I really started to understand that electricity is not this “bolt” thing. It’s a very hypothetical science that we try to understand and harness, but there’s still no law of electrons because we’ve never seen one. Seeing the science and math behind behind this super powerful force made me instantly fall in love with it. The fact that it’s hard to understand and takes years of study before you grasp the full picture makes it a perfect career choice for anyone out there looking for a change.
