This apprenticeship program is a great way to learn more about the work you are doing from your fellow apprentices. The program is led by a mentor and is offered by the local YMCA.
In the video, we get a glimpse of what some of the jobs might look like: There are two tracks, each with two apprentices. The apprentices are split up into three groups of four, and get to work in various activities, such as working on a ship or building a house. The main job that the apprentices are assigned is to build a house. The building is done on an unstructured, makeshift site that’s meant to provide a challenge for the apprentices.
What really struck me about the video was how the video didn’t show us any of the actual work that the apprentices are doing. It’s kind of like when you are watching a video of a movie and say, “I see the actors in the movie, but I haven’t seen the actual movie”. That’s kind of true of many video games, and that’s the difference between video games and movies.
When I first heard you mention the other day that you should try to open a new window on your own, I thought that was hilarious. This is why we have all these other ideas and resources to get you to do these things. You don’t need to be a tech expert to get this done.
You are correct. I have a friend who is an artist, and he has never really accomplished anything he is proud of. He had a really good idea for a new tattoo, but he didnt follow through because he didnt have the skills to be an artist.
We all have ideas we want to accomplish, but when it comes to actually doing the deed, we’re usually not very good at it. Most people who take on new jobs learn how to do a task or create an artifact by themselves, but the vast majority of the things most people do are either very easy or very, very hard and not very satisfying.
That means the vast majority of the things most people do to make a living are either very easy or very, very hard, and not very satisfying. The great majority of people who do any kind of work have a few problems that prevent them from getting anything done. We have a few people who can work on their problems, but it really only takes one to ruin the whole thing. Like so many people, our friend Alex is a serial entrepreneur.
This is the fourth time we’ve been on this issue that we’ve been asked to do this. And the answer is “yes” to that question. Alex and I are both extremely excited about being able to do our job, so the answer is “yes”. I can tell you that I’m very confident that Alex was the only person in the entire team that would really benefit from this, and I’m absolutely confident that I could do a lot of things for him.
The last time I was on this, Alex and I were asked to do this, one of the things that was talked about was the difficulty of getting people who are not familiar with the team to understand what is going on. Im not sure what this is, but Im not going to spend another minute trying to explain it to you. We need to get people to understand that we are, in fact, a startup and that we are a team that is being hired on for a great cause.
Alex and I are always amazed at the amazing work that people put in to startups, even ones that have never been a part of the startup scene before. But we also know that there are many, many other great people that work in startups that have no idea what they are doing and that are doing amazing things.
