When my parents first met, my dad was an office worker and my mom was a cashier.
Not very fancy jobs, and they would both talk about how much they hated their jobs and wanted something different. Together, they discussed ideas and what career field had a high demand. Eventually, they settled on getting into the HVAC career field. The heating and cooling industry is always going to be in high demand, because people are always seeking heating and cooling repairs or installations. My parents knew this, and that is why they decided to create their own HVAC business. My dad went back to school and learned how to operate a business, and my mom handled all of the paperwork. Together, they made a great team, and even though they are technically the youngest HVAC business in our town, they actually have the best reviews and prices! As their child, I always felt kind of bad, because I grew up and became a waiter at a local restaurant, meanwhile my parents are doing great. But at the same time, I can’t feel too bad, because both of my parents started off with bad jobs as well, and didn’t get into HVAC until they were much older. I am seriously considering following their footsteps as well, and see how it works out for me. My mom and dad have already encouraged me to give it a shot, and I am really considering it. I don’t know if I would ever want to run a business, but to just become an independent HVAC worker would be nice.
