10. High School
Bryan Baeumler is a handyman at heart, and he’s always been that way! He spends his days working on his feet, out in the field. In an interview with HGTV, he said even when he was a kid at school he dreamed of working outside. He never enjoyed the idea of having to sit inside and learn what he needed to to succeed in life from a textbook. “I used to stare out the window a lot at the maintenance guys and wish I could be out ad working. Honestly, I’d always look out the window and wish I could go out there with those guys and cut down the trees, drive the tractor. Stuff like that,” he said.
9. First Job
Baeumler has always been drawn to the kind of jobs that take him outdoors; in fact, his first job was working on a farm! “The farmer behind us hired me to drive the tractor in bailing season. I was too short to reach the peddles on the tractor, so he’d get it in gear and I would be on the tractor, and just be going real slow. He’d point to the bales and the older kids would put it on the trailer. Every now and then, they wouldn’t get to one, and I would run over a bale, I didn’t know how to stop or anything. I just knew how to steer,” he said.
