A man pulls up to his local tire shop and sees Jessica hard at work.
“All the women these days are taking the mens’ jobs.” he says.
Comments like that don’t discourage Jessica though.
She’s confident and competent in her job.
That’s pretty cool if you ask me.
And she’ll never have to call her boyfriend for help if she gets a flat.
Curiosity is what drew her to the shop in the first place.
It was something she didn’t know how to do,
so she took courses and learned the ropes.
Now she’s an expert in the garage because of her ambition and perseverance.
Alright ladies, it’s time to fight for your right to wear summer clothes! Before the cool weather really starts rolling in, make sure to wear those flip flops and shorts as much as you can. In the spirit of Crafted in Carhartt, I wanted to carry an adaptation of this great quote by Marie Curie around with me.
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that?
We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.
We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”
I stenciled it onto the back of my Carhartt Annapolis Shirt. What a great reminder to yourself, and those walking behind you, of the hard work we should put into our passions.
