You will learn a lot and make a lot of money. I knew I wasn’t going to be a 9-5 office person. Now I’m out here in plants and refineries...America! Find something there is a demand for. If you know you aren’t going to be a office person get into a union or go to a trade school and apply yourself and you will see yourself succeed!

Its not an office job! If you are willing to work in the weather with your hands then this might be for you. If you are a badass pipefitter...you can work anywhere for more money than the other guys are getting.
