Happy Sunday! Thinking about subway tiles and under mount sinks!#deadlinestress #workingwhileyousleep #interiordesign #bedstyhomeremodling #Construction #womeninconstruction
We are excited and honored to host our first #womenempowerment #womeninconstruction event next week. In order to in part level the playing field in construction in South Africa.
Research Sunday’s, that’s how we get our creative juices flowing, allowing us to maximise creative executions for our clients.
I have 30 years of working in construction dealing with imposter syndrome in the most obvious way because from the very start I was told I don't fit in. I don't belong. I'm in "their" world and I need to conform. Tried it. Didn't work 😂 Now I'm an award winning, kick-ass, very experienced project manager with a book under my belt as well. I wrote the book because I could not find something that was actually helpful to a women that doesn't fit the norm, follow the expected stereo-types, I don't even drink coffee. I know right?  shocking! I got sick of "just believe in yourself" without anyone being able to tell me what that actually looks like and what the process is (the why? is strong within me) So if anyone can relate, or know someone who can, please grab a copy of my book. It's got some tough stuff in there, but I've tried to write a guide for people to mentor and coach themselves, because sometimes we come from a background that we think others can't relate, an industry that no-one seems to understand, a place where we struggle to find others like us. For less than a cup of good coffee (or so I've been told - remember I don't drink it!) you can grab this guide to help with mindset, focus, imposter syndrome and most of all, RESILIENCE - something that has been my greatest asset. E-version - (also on Amazon) https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/895091 Print version also available. I would love a review and more importantly, to know if it helps you! Thanks for reading this far on Sunday.  You're awesome.

🔨🏠👷🏼‍♀️💪🏻 Framing on framing on framing (don’t mind the brace in the way😬). Today I had the pleasure of leading our Women Build team and despite the straight up sweat fest they killed it! Some days I can’t believe that I get to call this work. @ashevillehabitat #womeninconstruction

Let’s focus on some positive things today... Here’s a throw back to my pops showing me the way of the trade in my early years 🥰 People ask me often how it is to be working in a male dominated industry and tbh it’s all I’ve ever known. I appreciate my parents never making me feel that this industry would be any different towards me based off my gender🙋🏼‍♀️ And more so, I appreciate the badass men & women that lift each other up every day 🤗 #monroe #yellowblood #caterpillar #caterpillarfamily #earthmoving #earthmovers #womeninconstruction #earlycountryyears #louisianamachinery
Every day should feel this good...at @target 💙 Absolutely love the new @vineyardvines collaboration at Target! 🐳 #vineyardvinesfortarget

Proof I’m still alive & meat fueled. 😂 These past few months have been an emotional roller coaster which is why I’ve been laying low on social media. Carnivore is not the end all be all answer when it comes to mood & stress. Yes Carnivore helps, lord does it help. But, BUT! If your life is in chaos it doesn’t matter how restrictive your food intake is. You will still suffer from depression, stress, breakouts & a potential host of other negative side effects. If you are still suffering & you are fully restricted then you need to look outside of your food & see what the problem areas are & aim to fix them. Only you can know what’s best for you to lead a truly healthy happy life. I hope this message finds you well & helps anyone out there suffering. Be true to yourself & your health will follow. 🥰 #meatheals #worldcarnivoretribe #primal #paleo #IF #zerocarb #womencarnivoretribe #union #liuna #aflcio #ibew #uaw #teamsters #linemen #laborer #operators #womeninconstruction #yes2meat #picoftheday #mentalhealth #physicalhealth #betruetoyourself

So I’m following an imaginary maze I have instilled in my brain at this point...so it looks like I’m fucking around to y’all. Timed, control the weight without hitting any barriers, looks easy as shit right? It’s not unless you have years of experience or you’re a bad ass 🤣 my everything depends on this. Literally, perfecting until it’s my time 🦉 #Practice #PracticalExam #TowerCraneOp #TowerCranes #Apprentice #Rookie #Grind #DreamBig #ReachForTheSky #Liebherr #32TT #Construction #WomenInConstruction #NotYourAverage

What I've been up to.... Because the green overspray just wasn't working for me...

For Learning at work week we spoke to our very own guru of all things Passivhaus & building performance, Sally Godber. Sally runs courses in Passivhaus & low energy building through CarbonLite. Learning at work to continually improve our skills is hugely important. Learning leads to greater personal & professional wellbeing, it helps us approach what we do differently & more effectively. Sally told us, “CarbonLite training is aimed at empowering people to do things for themselves rather than relying on specialists. We give them a deep understanding of the subjects we teach. This is the ethos at the heart of every course we provide.” Sally continued “learning something new mid-way through your career can be daunting but very rewarding! People often tell us how it’s helped them reflect on what they’ve done to date, & provides new drive to improve.” Sally advises “when choosing a course it’s important to “learn from people who have a deep understanding, passion & knowledge of their subject.” The team at CarbonLite includes builders, architects, energy assessors, service engineers & more.  What’s special is their experience as they’ve been involved in the most forward thinking high performance buildings in the UK! Many of the team are members of the AECB - The Association for Environment Conscious Building - a network of individuals, educational establishments & companies which promotes sustainable building. The AECB was responsible for some of the UKs first Passivhaus buildings. Courses offered are for designers & contractors, plus bespoke courses for anyone who’s interested. The focus is delivering excellent comfort & energy performance in buildings. “Achieving Passvhaus is all about quality; you can’t bodge your way around it. Our courses develop both practical & theoretical knowledge,” says Sally. We say learning at work helps challenge conventions & raise standards, it positively impacts those doing the learning & the community & world beyond them. What are you learning about & why? Make change happen.  Build better, live better. Find out more: http://www.passivhaustraining.co.uk #womeninconstruction #womeninarchitecture #learningatworkweek
Congratulations to all of our WIC members who graduated last night! We are so proud of each of you and cannot wait to see where the future takes you all! We will miss you! #womeninconstruction #WIC #womenempowerment
