This plumber I spoke with recently didn’t believe I knew his trade and when I spoke more with him he said, “You really do know what you are talking about. I’d better not do anything wrong or you’ll know about it.” My friends see me as different now. They see me as this person who can do all this stuff! I feel empowered and confident.
