Articulate. Thoughtful.

Noah brings a whole other level of insight to the trades. Greatly appreciate his insightful questions and determination to find best answers/solutions.

Jason Paris.

One of the very best interviews of Jason Paris I have listened too. Brilliant format Noah. It’s a very interesting Question: What is the ripple that Jason’s approach to domination of the otherwise assumed and uninformed population in a particular geographical market, in the un professionalized trades industry. Great question. There is a responsibility here that I don’t see being met. He is an important man. I am in Jason’s market. I find a good deal of positioning, aligning, and counterbalances taking shape,, I wish we were aligned to the same importance of it all.

A Long Overdue Program-Subscribe Now

Over the course of the last century, 'The Trades' have fallen into a place where they are often not as appreciated by society as they should be--until, of course, they're needed. But in fact, there is an enormous amount of craft involved in the professional trades, and they are every bit as important to the general well-being of society as any other job--if not more so. Noah Kanter's "Advice From a Young Tradesman" explores the trades, and makes a powerful and compelling case for what I like to call the emergent new Golden Age of the Trades--a long overdue evolution in the world of work. He makes a great case for entering the Trades as a career, rather than a job--and his argument is sound. This is a Podcast you want to subscribe to, no matter what you do professionally. Lots of insight here!
