Refreshing

Great to listen to industry leaders’ life stories of success. I’m a 25 year veteran who is ready to give up on the industry and change careers because I’m surrounded by a sea of horrible technicians who flat out don’t care. It’s refreshing to listen to top notch techs who take great pride in what they do. Keep it up!!
