Why I Became A Plumber | Why I Joined Trade Plumbing| Q & A #5

Peeps, Molotovhere in the studio. I was necessary to do another Q& A. It’sjust going to be one question, but one I’ve gottena couple of meters. And the reason whythis was precipitated was because we’vegot a new customer out there, Sean Singh. Sean, thanks for reachingout, and here’s the question. Sean Singh says, merely recognized you’re a Toronto guy like myself. That’s awesome. I wanted to ask whyyou became a plumber. Did you deepen fromanother vocation? Maybe you can referme to a previous video whatever it is you answeredthese questions. Thank you. Sean, great tohear from you, being. And it’s really cool thatyou’re also from Toronto. You might recognize someplaces when I’m driving by. I’ve gotten this questiona couple of periods, and I felt like it was timeto address it and tell you the overall reasonsand motives for me to join the trade.The first thingthat I got to say is plumbing was nevera dream job for me. Plumbing was me trying tochange my financial position. I ever gravitatedtowards arts. I’m a professional sorcerer. I also did comedy forabout eight years. I too am now into music. I do some visual artsand stuff like that. And if I could choosea occupation of my own, it would be something of thatnature, where I can express myself and make money from it. So hopefully, inthe future, I’ll be able to have acareer like that. But thus far, it isplumbing, and it’s something that I’ve grown to desire. Now a bit about me, Igraduated from York University. I have an honorsdegree in thinking, which doesn’t give you a lot ofoptions in regards to careers, but it was something thatI was intense about in my early 20 s and late teens. So it’s something that I divedinto and took my experience with and finished. And it’s somethingthat’s important to me, because the biggerquestions in life were always somethingthat my imagination tended toward and started asking.There came a target inmy eighth year of humor where I had to makea big decision. I had invested six months typingfor special needs students as well. And within the firstly sixmonths of working there, I realized that Iwasn’t making any money. At the end of the month, I wouldbasically not even break even. I’d be spending a little bitmore than I actually reached. I wouldn’t say panic attack, but it was definitely an intense moment one light. I was staying up really late. It was a Saturday night. Charity was sleeping. And I startedrealizing that I’m just not attaining fairly moneydoing what I’m doing. And I kind of sat back, andI realized I demand a family, I want to getengaged, and I want to get married andall these things.And nothing was happening. On top of all of this, I’malso watching Charity work ludicrous sum of hourstyping for special needs students, and then she’salso tutoring at night. And she’s attracting in15-, 16 -, 17 -hour epoches. And she’s not making a ton ofmoney, but she’s getting by. And I see how exhaustedshe is constantly, and I felt personallyresponsible for not being a help there, you know? I felt bad. I felt bad that Iwas chasing my dream, and I was watching somebodyelse suffer because of that. If I had earlier ondecided, OK, we’re going to do this together, we would have manufactured both of our lives a bit easier. So it was a reallybig awakening moment where I had toeventually say, I’m not doing right by abunch of people that are really important to me. I feel like we comeinto this world, and we are responsible toa certain amount of people.So I sort of decided, you know what, we have to start doingright by the people that are important to me. I had this entire narrativehappen in one evening. Charity’s fast sleeping. This thing is goingthrough my brain, and I’m thinking tomyself, you are well aware, I persistently hear peopletalking about trades. And they’re constantlytelling me, oh male, they’re so in demand. That’s the sort of jobthat’ll never leave. You’re always going to bebusy and this and that. So I started thinkingto myself, OK, my dad is a fully licensed plumber. He owns his ownplumbing company. It’s just him, he’s one person. So if I wanted to, Icould apprentice under him right away. You know, on top of that, he’s get older in senility. And he’s still doinghard physical strive, so I’m sure that he needsmore mitts in the work.And then I started calculating, and I was thinking, Dad would probably giveme $15 an hour to start. I would work eight-hour eras. And on top of that, becausemy dad knows that I’m still doing slapstick, he was stillable to give me time off for the days that I needed it. What you should know isthat at that point in animation, when I was doingcomedy, I was traveling once a month fromToronto to Ottawa, which is about a fourto five hour drive. I do this once amonth for 2 day, so I get there on a Tuesday, and I’d stay for the Wednesday as well.And then I’d comeback on the Thursday. And I was doing that to goto a humor squad in Ottawa announced Absolute Comedy. We have one here in Toronto, butit was really advantageous for me to go there, because Igot to, first of all, meet the owner of the golf-club. And too, it was a greatopportunity to see a live crowd and get a great response. And you’d know right awayif your cloth worked.So I was doing this every month. It would be three daysoff of manipulate, basically. I’d also pay for ahotel at the time. So it was very demanding. My dad, knowing thesituation that I’m in and the passion thatI had behind the slapstick and the supernatural, he was ableto allow me to do this. So I did all the math. It was enough money atthe end of the month that even though they are I traveledto Ottawa and “re coming back”, I’d still have money left over. It would situate Charity and I ina better financial position. I could begin saving foran booking reverberating, which was something thatwas next on my list.And I’d be able to startsaving for the future. I literally went to bed thatnight running, OK, that’s it. I’m going to become a plumber. I went to bed. I woke up the following morning. Charity wakes up. Tell her my fib, Itell her what my hypothesi is. I say, I’m thinkingof becoming a plumber. What do you think? She goes, I thinkit’s a good idea. I extend directlydownstairs, and I start talking to my momma andmy daddy and Charity. And I say, examine, guys, I’mthinking of becoming a plumber. What do you think? Here are my reasons. My dad said it was a good idea. That was Sunday. Literally the following day, Igave in my 2 weeks’ notice, and two weeks later, I in mydad’s truck helping him out. It was an interestingsituation, because I don’t come to such a sure-fireconclusion very often, and this was one of thosemoments where I merely knew it was the right move to do.Looking back at itnow, all the equipment that you check me working on, having this camera right here– this is a Canon 80 D. This is at least a $1,000, $1,500 camera. My Canon G7 X, that’san $800 camera. Everything that I havepurchased, including an commitment echoing, including paid under a good portionof my wedding, all that came from plumbing. Plumbing was the reason thatI’m here today as a vlogger. And that’s somethingI’m really proud of. Sorry, I’m gettinga bit feelings. One thing I wantedto tell you guys, I know this is runningon quite long. But one thing I wantedto tell you guys was I’m really proud to be a plumber. Three generationsof men in my family have gone into plumbingfor the same reasons. During the period of WorldWar II, when the world was being divided betweencommunist and capitalist, my grandpa inGreece was very poor, and his family wasleaning towards communism. And at that time, because of circumstance, he was dragged into therebel army in Greece. At some station, therebel military was losing.Him and my grandmother, including the rest of their familythat could make it, they went to communist Russia. So they went toa place which was part of the Soviet Union atthe time called Uzbekistan. When my grandfathergot there, “hes having” some previoushistory in millwork. My grandfather in Greeceworked for his father, and they used to repaircarriage motors and cabs all together. And that was the tradehe grew up learning.So when he got to Russia, hesort of knew some millwork. Tried it out. But their own problems he ran intowas that it was piecework, so you would get paidaccording to every single piece that you did correctly. The action the storygoes is my grandfather would perform 50 piecesin a particular way, then start refining them andrealize that all 50 sections have effectively off by a little. So they only hopeless. And he was having a reallyhard time, because he was thinking to himself, howam I going to feed my family? So my grandfatherknew another Greek guy who lived in Uzbekistan aswell and told us to him, hey, do you sentiment if I meet you guys? And that person rana plumbing crew. And as soon as hejoined up, that’s mostly how hemade his living. And a few years later, he got to the point where he was runningsix or seven crews.He was basically a inspector, and he’d go to job sites and make sure everythingwas set up precisely. And that’s what mygrandfather did. He became a plumber to betterhis financial position. My dad grew up inthe Soviet Union. He went to school to learnhow to repair a specific type of calculator in Russia. And basically, my pa endedup switching over to plumbing for the same kinds ofreasons, because it only furnished a better lifestylefor him and a better financial position. I know you’re probablysitting back exiting, communism implies everybody’smaking the same money. But unfortunately, thestories that I hear, that’s not the course it operated. There were hierarchies involved, and certain rackets actually formed more money.That’s as far as Iwant to get into that, but my pa got intoplumbing in Russia under my grandpa forthe exact same reasons, so that he could providemore for their own families. Now, I didn’t knowthis at the time. When I had constructed thedecision, I merely did it because Iknew it was there. I knew the laborand the hard work was something thatwould get me paid well.And I knew therewas a lot of it. And it worked with thehours that I needed and the money that I needed. So I decided to go into it tobetter my financial position and my wife’sfinancial position. And now here we are. So the last thingI want to say is that in the first few yearsthat I was doing plumbing, it was very difficultfor me, because I didn’t want to do the occupation. I got into it for themoney, but at heart, I was still a comedian, andI was still a magician. But then as I gotbetter, I started enjoying the problem-solvingaspect of it.It become somethingmore and more fun. And then findingout about my lineage and how my grandfather becamea plumber to better himself, and then my father didit, and then I did it, I came to realize thatplumbing literally enabled me to chase allthese other dreams that I have. And for that, I owe the pipes.[ MUSIC PLAYING].
