Show Notes

In this week’s episode I am chatting with Martha Bennett Global Vice President of Marketing Excellence for 3M and Cedric Smith a welder out of Minnesota. 3M recently put out a documentary entitled Skilled that was released at the Sundance Film Festival, which highlights different industries in the Skilled Trades to bring  awareness and information to the next generation. As most of you all know, there’s a huge shortage of people across all industries of Blue Collared Trades. 3M is doing their part to get more people involved in the different industries.
