Favorite Quotes: 

“I found myself being forced by my dad to go with him because obviously he wanted to teach me to be somebody of good and hardworking. Eventually, it clicked with me that if I have to be out here in the field and see the construction process, I may as well make something of it.”

“It’s been kinda hard for us to find that person who is going to align with us because you have a lot of slack and partying, and they’re not focused on what they want.”
