Hello from SoCal!


I'm here because I'm looking to figure out how to do my job before someone finds out the truth! Sort of kidding........sorta not.

I'm 32 and a year into construction as a new career. About two plus years ago i decided I want to be a builder, and last december I found a job as a cabinet maker's apprentice as a way into the industry. My fearless leader bailed about 4 months ago and now I run the show at our shop. I think the general i work for must be crazy letting me do this! After some REALLY trying times for me at first, i have calmed down a bit and things are going ok. I'll be installing my first start to finish job in 3 weeks.

I'm really here because I want to learn anything I can about building and construction. I lurked over at contractor talk, but I think this would be a better fit for me at the moment.

I'm glad to be here
David

Hello from SoCal!


Hi David,

Welcome to the site. Wow, you have alot of weight on your shoulders.

All I can say is: the best lessons you will learn are from your mistakes. I know that can sound discouraging at first. But tell yourself that when you make those mistakes and it will help pick you up a bit.

Good luck on your first fabrication and install job.

Hello from SoCal!


Send_it_all, I live in Costa Mesa, off Bristol.

Atlantic, Don't I know it!! I could've used your encouraging words a few months back. That's for sure! I have always had an "imprint" that said to quit when the going got tough, but somehow I've been pushing past it in my new position, and fortunately, I think that imprint is changing to "you CAN do it........ you're just gonna be really for a few minutes.

Thanks for the hello,
David
