Find Your Happy
In this episode, Find Your Happy, Hoots interviews Mr. Ray Terry who is 71 years young, going on 40, and super passionate about putting tools in schools. Through Ray’s organization *Put Tools in Schools*, he has been to 10 high schools and spoke with over 5,000 students this year. That is 33% of the high schools in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Area.
Ray is not afraid to step on toes and spread his beliefs and message. As a radio host for Fox Sports Charlotte, Ray is a natural on the microphone and knows how to push the limits! Completely worth a listen as Ray explains the issues that society has in encouraging young people to go to college and not better understand the trades.
Ray gives his blueprint on how he is putting tools in schools and introducing young people to their happy (their IKIGAI!)!! Ray expresses lots of discontent with his journey in visiting the school systems throughout the Charlotte area of North Carolina. Ray is truly making a difference in the construction labor workforce shortage by spreading the word and getting in front of young people to introduce them to their purpose for being on this earth.
Happy will give you what you want. Find your happy! If you need help, call Ray! His phone number is on his website: https://www.aboutyourhouseradio.com/
