There's a lot of surface level talk about the skills gap and the future of the skilled trades, but it's rarely a deeper dive from the perspective of a young business owner within the trades. Noah Kanter of Nth Degree Painting takes a closer look.

Great podcast!

Such a necessary podcast! I’m a 34 female with a degree in psychology that I thought I had to get because well, that’s what everyone else was doing. Fast forward more than ten years, and I’m working as a decorator who does painting and small builds. I’m lost on how to grow or expand my skills and even more so with the business stuff. Do I work on my own, join a company...are there such things...and if so how would a female even fair in the trade world. Anyways, thanks for the conversation! I’m loving it so far!

Impressive

I thought I was the crazy one. I have 3 college degrees and I own a small painting/concrete coatings business. Skilled labor is where it’s at. If you have or if you learn a set of skills, you can excel in business, but the desire to excel has to be there.

Excellent

Excellent insight so far. Great “podcasting”, too. Lots of podcast start ups can’t keep my attention past 1/2 an episode. I’m a cabinet maker who for some reason went to college, AFTER becoming a cabinet maker. $80,000 of unpaid student loans later, I’m a 35 year old trying to figure out how to get back into woodworking, pay for child care for two toddlers, and pay for life with my partner. She has a decent job, but we are scraping the bottom of the barrel every month. If you know anyone in this situation I’d love to hear an interview.
