From Homeschool to HVAC:
Rethinking College and Careers

December 14, 2023 Episode 1

In this inaugural episode of the Boldline podcast, Pam interviews Bryan to learn how Kalos has grown into a 270+ person company offering services beyond HVAC. Bryan shares his unique background and also talks about his new book “Unconformed” which aims to provide encouragement around pursuing trades and other hands-on careers, as well as his passion for giving back by creating more training programs and resources in the HVAC field.

Throughout the conversation, Bryan and Pam touch on workforce development topics related to peer and parent pressure towards traditional college, the need to lift up skilled trades, and the importance of following your interests even if they start as hobbies.
