Like so many other students, Monique Juratovac was not a fan of high school and she left to begin a hairdressing apprenticeship.

But once she completed the trade, she realised hairdressing was not her true calling.

But what she wanted to do next was not encouraged by her father.

She wanted to become a bricklayer.

Considering only two per cent of bricklayers are women, it is no surprise her father had his doubts.

In their chat, Monique shares with Matt what her first boss said to her the day she started, and how she is treated by the many people of the opposite sex in the work place.

This is a great chat for any one thinking of a significant career change or who just wants to break society's so-called 'rules'.
