Hammering Out a Living
A Carpenter’s Guide for a Successful Life
by Karl D. Hughes
The truths that I present are universal, and they are not exclusive to those who work in blue-collar trades such as carpentry. However, my work is intentionally directed at my fellow carpenters because they work so hard yet find little opportunity to hear these concepts. My AHAbook is intended for all who go out to work to provide for themselves and their loved ones.
Without question, many of us have already realized a few of the ideas presented. We have been taught these ideas by parents and other mentors. But some folks, through no fault of their own, have never heard any of the ideas discussed in this book. If you’re one of these people, then this book is just for you!
Whether you have heard this before and it reminds you of something or refreshes your willingness to work toward your personal goals or if you are hearing this for the first time, the message is the same, the message is important, and the message works.
My message to you is this: “Yes, you are good enough. Yes, you are worthy. Yes, your best is good enough. Yes, there is honor and dignity in all walks of life. And yes, yes, yes, you can be successful while working with your hands in a blue-collar occupation. Yes, you can be successful without formal education or a college degree.”
After all, I am a time-traveler, here to let you know what to expect in and to give you a glimpse as to what can be in store for you in the future.
