I went to the school of hard knocks, and am still there. Went to work pt time in the 11th grade, been working ever since. Taught myself everything I know, worked as a carpenter for a while, heavy equipment operator a while, ran a woodyard, eventually got into trucking, been doing that 33 years, 22 as a owner/operator. Also taught myself mechanics. All this by reading and hands on experience. Still working, still learning, still broke, but mostly happy....

Not a school person at all. I learn best by doing and watching. Most of what I know I learned because I couldn't afford to pay to have it done. I also learn a long time ago that the guy I paid to do it didn't do it very well and I had to do it over. I also learned that you should have smarter people you around you. They are free education. Don't be to proud to say you don't know and someone will generally help teach you.
