163. Financially secure by 21, she is proof of the opportunities of the Trades

Guest: Alana Wicker - Robot Technician and Metal Artist

While most people in their early 20s are still in school or figuring out what they want to do in life, tonight’s guest already has an established career in the trades and was financially stable enough at 21 to help her dad renovate houses and build a shop of her own! Alana Wicker is proof positive that there is more than 1 path to success in life and of the incredible opportunities that a career in the trades can offer.

Alana began welding at 17 and had earned her certificates by 19. In her words “welding has changed my mindset from ‘oh - someone else can do it…’ to ‘Girl, I can do that!’” Today, at just 24, she is a Robotics Technician and a Metal Artist. She loves that her path in the trades allows her to create, to be constantly challenged, and that she is always growing and learning new skills. She is passionate about inspiring the next generation and living an authentic and meaningful life.

**note - we did have some reception issues mid conversation - but hang with us cause she makes it back and its so worth it!**
