One misconception the skilled trades has is that a career in a blue collar industry is not a path to success. That is false – the only thing keeping someone from success is themselves. If someone is dedicated to working hard and making an impact they will have a significantly higher chance at career success.
This is proof in Episode 12 of Mike Rowe’s Hot Under the Blue Collar; Mike interviews Scott Vigue, an owner of a plumbing franchise who got into the business after leaving high school in the tenth grade and began working for his father. By the time Scott turned 28-years-old he was running his own business; in October 2016, Scott has 110 employees and a revenue of $23 million!
