“Just because you love something doesn’t mean you can’t suck at it.” – Mike Rowe
Filmed in 2008, this is one of my all-time favourite TED Talks. Mike Rowe is one of my heroes. Like me, he is a big proponent of apprenticeship and on-the-job training. Through his foundation, he actively encourages young people to get into the trades instead of going to university, encouraging real skills over fancy pieces of paper. I couldn’t agree more. Check it out!
On a related note, this is one of my favourite episodes of the Tim Ferriss show, with Mike Rowe. This is a fantastic interview, he has so many great stories! His D3 airline golden ticket story alone is worth the price of admission.
Show notes as well as download link for this episode are available here. (Note: this audio might take a minute to load after you click ‘Play’, it’s a long interview. You can skip past the first few minutes, the interview starts at 5:57)
