The Journey Begins….

Thanks for joining me!

My name is Leslie M. Jasper and I am the author of the book entitled, Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey to Become an Electrician.  I would be embarrassed having a young person reading my book.  Therefore, I created a teen version of the book.  My edited teen version is entitled, Construction Tales: A Young Person’s Guide to Accomplish Anything in Life.  For the sake of simplicity and the power of hashtags, my book goes by the hashtag #ConstructionTales.  My first children’s book is entitled, Not All Girls Play With Dolls.  It serves as a prequel to #ConstructionTales.  I need my illustrator to finish my illustrations since the book has been written for a while.  My books, both current and future, are in paperback, e-book, and audio on the following platforms: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Audible.  The book was featured via the Combined Book Exhibit in a few different book fairs.  I even use my Combined Book Exhibit trailer on the Verbally Disastrous YouTube channel.

It is obvious that I am a journeywoman electrician by trade.  I now work as a Safety Manager for a WBE electrical contractor in New York City.  I started my electrical career in 1993 as a Construction Apprentice in the U.S. Navy Seabees.  I then continued my electrical career as an apprentice electrician when I joined Local #3 IBEW since 1995 until today.  I worked with the tools until the year 2014.  During that time, we were still suffering from the effects of the 2008 recession with a huge block- between one to two years of employment between jobs.  I started working in the office via learning autoCAD and engineering with the largest electrical contractor in New York City.  Over time, I got a shot to work as a project manager within a team in the company.  I did PM work for a few other electrical contractors on a variety of short-term projects.  I found a home at a woman owned electrical contractor.  By 2020, I got an opportunity to study and take a series of safety credential exams.  I am now working for a WBE electrical contractor as a Safety Manager.

I came up with the podcast concept a few years ago.  A few people had suggested, over the years, for me to create a podcast since I bring unique perspective.  However, I had never attempted before 2021.  I didn’t know where or how to even start.  It took some patience and some exploring to make it happen.  I am the host, with my co-host Melissa Polito, of The Verbally Disastrous Podcast With Leslie & Melissa.  The Verbally Disastrous podcast is on Spotify, Soundcloud, and YouTube.  We are just two random career chicks sharing our thoughts on a variety of topics.  At some point, we will become more advanced and figure out how to incorporate video with our podcast episodes.  We will learn how to go live on both YouTube and Instagram.  We are trying to steer clear of religion and politics!  Those subjects are heavy, fill people with emotion, and just ruins the vibe of a discussion.  Our goal is to find very odd, funny, unusual, and weird topics to discuss.  I have laid out some topics we will discuss.  However, we randomly switch gears with our topics at a moment’s notice.  Why?  Because we are…. Verbally Disastrous!!! 😛
