Learning a trade can change your life

I’m not trying to be a bummer here, but I went through some stuff when I was younger.

There is no reason to get into the details, but things were hard for a while, and then I was homeless which was an improvement, but still terrible.

I had a little help from my friends, and from strangers too, but I put in the work and the time to build myself a new life. My point is that no matter what kind of lousy cards life deals you, there are always options. For me it was getting an education in HVAC repair, which started me on a path to being self sufficient and eventually successful. This isn’t a blog about how great HVAC work is, but about how important it can be to learn a trade if you can’t go to college, or just don’t want to. A lot of people think that going to a university is the only way to get a high paying job, but that is what I found in the HVAC industry, only I didn’t need to take out huge loans for my education. Trade work does require education, of course, so you still have to study, and learn, and eventually earn a trade certification like I did for HVAC repair. Once I had that certification, I was instantly qualified for dozens of different jobs in my area, from being an HVAC tech to working in the front office of an air filter company. The point is that when you learn a trade like HVAC you will have new opportunities for the future.
