A Blue Collar Approach to Creating a Life You Love

Paige's Story

Goals Bring Dreams Closer

In her story, Paige shares wisdom learned from Ken. She cautions young people with the advice to really define your dreams. If you don’t know where you’re going, or where you want to end up, you’ll find yourself walking in circles.

I kept my goals really vague. I wanted a job I loved and to make money. But it wasn’t a real goal. When I started working with Ken, I was able to define the things that made me comfortable and happy.

Tim's Story

I Love Coming to Work

First, ask yourself, what is it you want? I married young and had children young. I answered an ad with Ken’s company, but I didn’t really know what I wanted to do or what my goals were.

Once I worked with Ken, he helped me figure out what my goals and dreams really are. The actions we take today are what create your dream days or years from now. You can get there – and I’m an example of that. I started digging trenches and shoveling stone. If I can do it, you can do it.

Melissa's Story

You Control Your Life

When I first started working with Ken, I didn’t really know where I was going or what I was doing. I wanted to go to college, because that’s what I thought I was supposed to do.

But you don’t have to do that to be successful. There are a lot of jobs out there that don’t require college degrees.

Being in control of my life is amazing.

Pete's Story

Starting the Path

Ken has helped me start to pursue my goals. I’ve been a craftsman for a number of years. I never really thought I would start to make anything of it – but I would talk to Ken about these ideas. He would say, “This is something you could pursue and turn into something special.”

Once you start on your path, you never turn back.

Blue Collar Cash presents the formula

Blue Collar Cash reminded me what is required to become successful. It is a process over time as well as a mindset, and in a very organized and thorough way the book presents the formula.

I am now able to focus on the task ahead

This program taught me how to take any goal, large or small, and break it down to manageable small tasks. I am now able to focus on the task ahead of me instead of becoming overwhelmed by the vastness of the greater goal.

Now I have an idea

This course helped me change my mindset with how I want to achieve life goals. I felt ‘stuck’ in my day-to-day routine and wasn’t sure how to overcome that, but now I have an idea.

My perspective has changed

My perspective on saving and giving has changed dramatically. I no longer believe that I have to be wealthy to give generously or save money. I know that setting small and specific goals and achieving them will get me to where I want to be.

This course got me to think differently

This course got me to think differently in terms of connecting my emotions to my goals and helping me define what I need in order to succeed. In a way, the emotions somewhat define the goals that really matter and how they’re defined themselves to bring my dreams to reality

I appreciate Ken Rusk’s heart

I appreciate Ken Rusk’s heart to help others and equip the next generation with an alternative viewpoint to pursuing a successful career beyond today’s truisms about college. If you need encouragement around considering blue collar vocations, consider this course.
