I can say that I have done well for myself over the years, though the journey was filled with a lot of obstacles and challenges.
I found a job with one of the biggest air conditioning companies in the state.
I started as a junior a/c worker. Some of my duties included helping out with any a/c repairs or a/c services. I would accompany the a/c representative team on their work orders. This shadowing allowed me to hone my skills and grow my confidence in attempting a job on my own. By the end of the first year, I was able to execute complicated tasks such as air conditioning installation. I was even able to go on these work orders and participate with the rest of my colleagues in the air conditioning maintenance. Soon after graduating from the apprentice program, I was given a task to help the expansion team as they were working on a plan to open an air conditioning business in a remote town west of our town. When we visited the town to determine whether the idea was feasible, we saw that there was a demand for new air conditioning systems and services. The inhabitants had HVAC systems but they had to travel far just to get an a/c worker to run simple tune-ups or the normal regular repairs. Some were struggling to keep up the optimal function of the system because they didn’t have a feasible a/c care plan for their air conditioners. The process of opening a business was challenging but the town inhabitants welcomed us making things a bit easier. We first set up an air conditioning supplier store where the inhabitants would get basic a/c care to improve the air quality.
