Ever since I graduated from high school, I have been working as an HVAC technician.
I got a decent job at an HVAC company in my area, and they promised to pay me to become a certified HVAC technician. They were good to their word, and I became a master HVAC technician. I worked my way up through the company, but after 15 years, I stalled. I was second-in-command at the HVAC company, but I had stopped getting steady raises. Most of the new workers were making as much as I was making, but I had been working at the HVAC company for longer than anyone besides the boss. I got fed up with it, and I tried starting my own HVAC company. I quickly learned that running your own HVAC company is difficult. It costs a ton of money just to begin your own business and have enough supplies to make it through your first project. Working as a new HVAC company is difficult because jobs like these require a reputation. Eventually, I closed down my HVAC company and went to work for a larger HVAC company in a different area. I had a better wage than I did at the old HVAC company, and I didn’t have the crippling burden of responsibility that I had when I ran my own HVAC company. I am definitely happy where I am! If I had to do it all over again, I would have never tried to start my own HVAC company. I spent a ton of money on that business, and I am currently paying the loan back as I work here at this new HVAC company.
