Not many people I know are happy to go to work in the morning, but I am one of them.
I have been running my own business for the last twenty two years, and have never loved it more than I do right now.
This is because my adult daughter has finished her training and started working here full time as the store manager. This means less work for me, and more quality time to spend with my one and only kiddo. I am basically grooming her to own the place, something that will be happening sooner than she thinks. I love the HVAC business, and have enjoyed my time in it, but I feel that once she is capable of running it all on her own, I am out of here. I will stay local, I don’t want to move to a retirement home, and I’ll probably keep working part time as an HVAC tech. I do enjoy the work, and would miss it if I stopped working with heating and cooling systems altogether. Overall, though, I feel like I am done with the stress and long hours of owning an HVAC dealership, and am ready to pass it on. I am very lucky to have done as well as I have, and double as lucky to have such a great daughter who is just as good at HVAC repair as I am. When the time is right, I know she will take our HVAC dealership to greater heights than I ever dreamed, and I can’t wait to see it.
