Abstract:

The only series of step-by-step guides to succeeding in the skilled trades and achieving the American dream. At Your Best as a Plumber is your playbook for learning if a career as a plumber is right for you, progressing from pre-apprentice to journeyman to master plumber, and launching your own small business. Learn: -What does a career as a plumber look like' -Why should you consider becoming a plumber' -How do you become a successful craftsman as a plumber' -How much can you make as a plumber' -What are your career options once you become a plumber' -How long does it take to be successful at each stage in a plumber's career' -How and where do you find work as a plumber' -What does it take to strike out on your own' -What does it take to launch and build a successful small business' At Your Best is the only step-by-step handbook to finding if a career in the trades is right for you, educating yourself and earning the proper certifications, establishing yourself as an excellent apprentice and journeyman in the industry, and moving on to start your own small business in the trades. At each step of the way, your At Your Best playbook and its companion, www.AtYourBest.com, provide the information, recommendations, outside resources, and concrete actions needed for taking the next successful step in You, Inc. Whether you are beginning your first career, changing careers, or ready to move up and start your own business as a carpenter, plumber, HVAC/R tech, or other tradesman, this is the book that will tell you how. There currently over 6.5 million unfilled jobs in the skilled trades in the US. Despite being well-paying and secure, these jobs remain open because enough qualified candidates with the skills, attitude, and experience required do not exist. Moreover, plenty of opportunity exists for established tradespeople to start their own business, but they have no guidance. The At Your Best Playbooks series and www.AtYourBest.com change that.
