A few years ago, a house in Utah was built by a team made up entirely of women. Today’s guest, Mollie Elkman, is the owner and president of Group Two, and she and her team were responsible for the sales and marketing side of the build. As the project was nearing an end, Mollie saw the potential of this story to positively impact the lives of so many women and girls, and she embarked on a journey of writing The House That She Built. The book highlights 18 of the trades that are involved in building a house, from excavators to plumbers to landscapers, and it has become an invaluable tool used to educate women and girls and other underrepresented groups about the career paths that are available to them. Tune in today to hear Mollie’s story; what led her to the construction world, what she loves about working in this industry, and how she hopes the future of the construction industry will be impacted by The House That She Built.
