    his podcast episode is PACKED full of information about how to become an architect, where the industry is headed and what it is like to build in NYC.

    Farah is a licensed architect who is also a published author in multiple magazines and online blogs. She is a wealth of knowledge for not only how to be an architect but being passionate and technical beyond what your field requires.

    Need an extra hand try using a Tailhand. How to get the most use out of your work truck with CEO Suzie

    Need an extra hand try using a Tailhand. How to get the most use out of your work truck with CEO Suzie

    If you use your truck everyday on the jobsite this episode was made for you!

    Safety and schedule are two important aspects to any construction site no matter how big or small. Tailhand is an accessory for tailgates that improves the functionality to allow for your truck to become almost a second hand helper. 

    I loved joking around with Suzie about all the ways I'd use Tailhand to make a volleyball court or an umbrella at the beach. 

    In this episode we also discuss the accelerator program that Suzie and her husband went through to get Tailhand off the ground. If you have an idea of a product to bring to the construction space this is a great episode to learn how others have done it. 

    Currently they are taking pre-orders with 30% off through this link!

    The other day on my walk I actually saw someone with a makeshift version of this that they had made. I really do think that this product could change the way that people use their tailgates to increase use and accessibility.

    What does heavy machinery and an empowerment coach have in common? How Louise is empowering tradeswomen.

    What does heavy machinery and an empowerment coach have in common? How Louise is empowering tradeswomen.

    Louise is a heavy machine mechanic from Australia has expanded her talents for being in the industry to empower tradeswomen.

    We discuss ways the trades can work in your favor by creating work weeks that fit your schedule. We also discuss how lucrative the pay is for mechanics.

    Louise has an awesome Facebook group she has created for tradeswomen to connect. 

    Personally, through the last several episodes I have learn so much about the pay scale and benefits in other countries. During this interview you'll hear me make some 'American' mistakes when I assume other countries have the same issues as the United States such as maternity leave.
