My son Jason has always wanted to own a small business.
He wanted nothing more than to follow in his dad’s footsteps, but he wanted to do this all by himself.
He did not ask for our help at any point during the process. Jason went to a technical trade high school, and after he graduated, he decided that he wanted to become a licensed HVAC technician. So, he wasted no time and enrolled himself into an 18 month program to start the process of becoming an HVAC technician. While he was in school, Jason worked as an apprentice for a local HVAC provider in our town. And luckily, when he graduated, they hired him, and he was able to work for a couple of years under one of their highly skilled technicians. From there, Jason learned everything he could and finally decided to get his certification. His dad and I were so proud of all that he had accomplished, and we were especially proud that he did it all on his own. Once he received his license, his salary drastically increased, and he was also assigned to his own service calls. Well, that was seven years ago, and today Jason is now a proud owner of his own HVAC company. Owning a small business isn’t easy, but I have no doubt that Jason will do what he needs to, so that he will succeed. And the best part out of all of this is that if I ever need HVAC service, I know who to call. Not only will I get the best service around, but I know it will be fast and efficient.
