ATLANTIC CITY NJ.
The view from the 28th floor.
Delivering a #keynote tomorrow afternoon representing @Finehomebuilding and the #KeepCraftAlive movement for @certainteedcorp Business Building Workshop. ◼️ ◼️
Humbling, terrifying, and exciting all at the same time. ◼️
What can I say in just a few minutes to explain what is going on in this community and the effect it's having on closing the skills gap in this country?
◼️
I am grateful to @mrjfink and @rob_yagid for taking a chance on a guy that traded the tool belt for a spreadsheet a while ago and inviting me to be a Brand Ambassador for such a fine organization. ◼️
I just pray that I can express my gratitude tomorrow and inspire other professionals like I have been inspired by #FHB and #KeepCraftAlive ◼️
One of the key points in the speech tomorrow (and then again on Thursday in Washington D.C) is...
In 2017 #KeepCraftAlive had over 145,000,00 impressions on social media. ◼️
It just goes to show what one business, with one mission, with one goal can accomplish. ◼️
My challenge to the audience in attendance...
What can you do in your business, in your community, in your family to inspire others to view the trades as a honorable and worthwhile lifetime pursuit.

Fabric haul! 13 1/2 yards of fabric and 3 yards of trim! I got velvet, taffeta, satin, lace, and more for $52 at Five Star Fabric House in Clifton. Such a great place, definitely five stars! I love all of these do much, and most, if not all, of the fabrics will go to my vintage sewing obsession! #sewing #sew #fabric #haul #creativity #fivestars #velvet #lace #taffeta #satin #trim #clifton #vintage #obsessed #progress

New guy hung and cased a door. No clue how he managed to put the head jamb on inside out and thought it was acceptable. #carpenter #trim #oops #ifixedit #wood #hislastday #toomanymistakes
