Fanuka has been in the trades since he was 15 years old, and runs one of New York City's top General Contracting firms.  He has 14 jobs going on at the same time throughout Manhattan, so if you want to talk about organization...this is the guy.

In this episode we are talking about how to avoid scams when a natural disaster occurs.  With the recent Hurricanes Harvey and Irma the devastation in Texas and Florida is unparalleled.

Ep11 - Interview with Josh Temple

 

Show Notes:
In this episode of the podcast we are talking to Mr. Josh Temple.  Josh is a self-taught carpenter who took an unusual path to finding passion and value in the trades...including walking out of his first job while getting the office tour on day 1.

He is proof positive that you can teach yourself anything you put your mind to, and he is a huge advocate for the trades.

Here are links Josh's socials:
https://www.instagram.com/joshtempletv
https://twitter.com/joshtempletv

and here are the links to the Boystown project we were discussing:
https://www.gofundme.com/tradelife

A note from Josh on Boystown:
To give you a short version, I’ve been working with Boys Town for over 4 years.  I’ve set up a Construction Class, Small Engines Class, and most recently a Welding Class.  I was able to do all this with the generosity of some special tool companies including Ridgid, JET, and Lincoln Electric.

These classes give the high school kids opportunities to learn trades and get the needed experience to jump into careers right after high school.  We’ve talked to local construction companies and enlisted their support as well.  

Trade Life is the newest program we’ve created.  It’s goal is to help these kids get and keep jobs for 1-3 years after graduating high school.  Through weekly mentoring, financial mentoring, securing and subsidizing apartments, and keeping these kids involved in the community, Trade Life is the way to keep these kids thriving after they turn 18 and lose all federal or state funding.

The more donations we get for Boys Town, the more career options we give these kids to learn and work towards.
