    Don't accept no for an answer. Next week call everyone who told you no this week. Sooner or later one of them will either appreciate your enthusiasm, and persistance. Or maybe you will catch them, when they are in dire need of help.

    Try to get some formal education in the trade.

    Through the years I have tried to teach guys the trade. My success rate with young guys with no formal trade education was like 1 in 6.

    When I try to teach the trade to a guy who took the time and money to go to a trade school, the success rate is 100%.

    So now I don't even waste my time trying to teach a guy that doesn't have a diploma.

    Just remember that what you put into this trade, you take out.

    Thanks for all the good advice to bencool i just want to say I went to a course of 900 hours and the majority was book knowledge not to much practical.I am not as confident as I should be with my on hands experience.
