In this episode of the Sparky Life podcast, host Lia Lamela interviews Ryan, an 18-year-old entrepreneur and HVAC apprentice. They discuss the urgent need for tradespeople and the opportunities within the HVAC industry. Ryan shares his proactive approach to learning and his plans to obtain multiple trade licenses. They discuss the academic system and encourage exploring various fields, including skilled trades, to find one's passion. Ryan emphasizes the importance of hands-on experience and offers practical advice to those entering the trade.
In our discussion, we delved into the concerning trend of fewer young individuals entering the skilled trades. It's a topic that's close to my heart, as I've seen firsthand the misconceptions surrounding these essential careers. Ryan, with his entrepreneurial spirit, has recognized the immense opportunities that lie within the HVAC field. He's a first-generation tradesperson who has taken a proactive approach to his future, and his insights are a testament to the value of exploring the trades.
Forget the cliché of "follow your passion." I'm all about exploring as many avenues as possible to truly discover what lights your fire. Ryan's journey is a testament to this approach, and it's something I wish more young people were encouraged to do.
