Learning a skilled trade

Continuing the discussion from Greetings!:

I would like to give a BIG shoutout to Bill & Deborah Hamilton (Internachi member) of Inspection Wizards in Grayson Ga for taking a chance and hiring me as an apprentice, since I had No experience and the handicap of being a girl I am truly humbled and grateful that a master inspector is taking the time and effort to teach me a skilled trade that will forever change my life Thank you Bill!!!

I sure hope my 4yo daughter doesn’t view being a girl as a handicap. I certainly do everything I can to teach her that women are smarter :slight_smile:

Welcome to our forum, Cecelia!..Enjoy! :smile:

Yeah I’m with @aankeny, being a girl isn’t a handicap. I’m pretty confident to say that the way women (girls) are with attention to detail definitely outshine men, or at least most men. If anything you have an advantage.
I don’t want my daughter to ever think she’s handicapped cause she’s a girl.
