My sister wanted to beginning an Heating and A/C contractor! There was only 1 Heating and A/C contractor in our area, and she thought it needed some competition. Since it took many weeks for myself and others to get our gas furnace took care of during the fall, I thought the people I was with and I had just outgrown needing only 1 Heating and A/C contractor, and both of us needed another 1 to handle all the business! When our sister started telling myself and others about her business plan, I could hear the excitement in her voice. She was serious about owning an Heating and A/C contractor, however then she came up with a but. This was a important but. She needed a partner. I asked if the partner needed to be an Heating and A/C serviceman. I had a business education, however I wasn’t an Heating and A/C serviceman. I was willing to help him run the business and take care of the books, and I would even invest in the contractor. She said she wanted another Heating and A/C serviceman who understood Heating and A/C and could be a working partner and a business partner. She told myself and others she could help myself and others with our lessons and give myself and others all the practical expertise I needed. It was against our better judgment, however I told him yeah; During the many weeks I was in college, I l gained more about Heating and A/C than I ever thought possible. In that time, I also helped to get the financial side of the business started, and had all the paperwork needed for the bank. By the time I got our certification for Heating and A/C, our sister and I were only a few short weeks to being the owners of the new Heating and A/C contractor in our area.
