Carpenters and craft, friendship and rivalry: Wally is building a mansion for a dot-com multimillionaire in the Silicon Valley of California. As the dot-com's stock keeps rising, the size of the house - and the owner's ego - keep growing. Wally and his colorful crew may be into something that's over their heads. When little guys work for bigshots, who gets nailed? From bungling to burglary, from demolishing concrete to racing beltsanders, from love of tools to falling in love, everyone will encounter Wally's Laws of Construction - or are they Laws of Life? Each house, it seems, is a miracle. Joe Cottonwood is a contractor in the Silicon Valley of California where he has been building houses - and fixing homes - for over 30 years. He is the author of FAMOUS POTATOES and other novels.

THE SCHOOL OF BRAVERY: A LEARNING LAB FOR LIFE, CAREER &...
A podcast and learning lab for creatives visionaries looking for an extra dose of bravery to get out there and do what they're called to do. Singer/songwriter, teaching artist, and creative entrepreneur, Emily Ann Peterson, hosts monthly guest experts and students who have stories of brave battles, creative solutions, courageous failures, dream-crushing constraints, knee-knocking fears, and innovative genius. Every month features the authors, musicians, artists, business owners, and other professionals who courageously pour themselves into their work. Every guest will flaunt the obstacles battled and the bravery required for their quiet victories and loud failures. Every episode holds conversations that unclothe the fears befriended (or banished) along with our stories of bravery, quiet heroism, and all-out gutsy-ness. Some episodes will open the (sometimes) Pandora's box of constraints and dream-crushing realities. Perhaps by listening to others search for and find their bravery, we will all find our own. For that is what we need most: to know we are not alone.
