In this book, Chadwick’s Cultivated Circumstances: Experience is SometimePriceless, it will explain that worth depends on the value that an individual offers. Diversifying one’s skill set has proven beneficial during this chaotic period to gain that value.   If a person has experience then they can even possibly survive a pandemic!

Charles has a quote for the students he mentors. He tells them “Don’t Be Afraid to Learn a Trade.” The trade industry has benefits, compared to the traditional college pathway, which has led to traffic financial jams on the crowded student loan debt highway. Having trade experience will also serve people to become better professionals and increase employment chances in any job market. The key to cultivating success is welcoming different circumstances with open arms, using the opportunity to learn.

College Vs Trades FACTS 

Approximately 40 percent of college students drop out without a degree, and, of those who complete their degree, 64 percent take more than four years to graduate, racking up even more debt. Less than two percent of students drop out of trade school, and the longest period of education is two years, although some industries require two to three years of paid apprenticeships following schooling.

Skilled trades rank among the top ten most difficult to fill positions, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and 75 percent of contractors are finding it difficult to find qualified workers. Young people aren’t entering these professions, even as older tradespeople are retiring – instead, high schoolers are being encouraged to attend college, despite the softening value of a bachelor’s degree and soaring college debt, while trades are largely overlooked and underfunded.
