About Your Host

My name is Jose Moreno, and I have been in the electrical business since I graduated from high school. I studied a trade rather than go to college, and I began working for a contractor. When the economy crashed in 2008, I was one of the many people who lost their jobs. I decided to double down on myself and become licensed as an electrician to run my own business. As it turned out, there was so much to learn that I hadn’t learned in school. By watching this show, you can see for yourself what some of those lessons are, and I encourage you to subscribe to this channel to learn them
