America Needs More Builders. Are Our Kids The Solution? | The Show

Matt Risinger is a premium home builder in Austin, Texas and host of The Build Show on YouTube. With over two decades of experience, he has established himself as a leading authority in the field.

Not long after setting up his own building company, Matt found himself buried in debt during the 2008 financial crisis. He has since become a passionate advocate for energy-efficient and sustainable building methods on a mission to build homes that stand the test of time. In our conversation, we talk about why more young people should consider the trades, why fatherhood is Matt’s favorite hobby, and how to survive a major construction project.
