Every small business starts out with a few clients and a dream.
I wanted a business of my own for a long time.
I worked for several different HVAC contractors before I decided to start my own business. I was a technician for almost 10 years, and I had a ton of commercial and residential experience. I knew I was ready for the next step in my career journey. When I decided to start the business, I didn’t have a lot of money. For the first 6 months, I drove my pickup truck to every job. I worked alone and only hired extra help on days when it was absolutely necessary. It’s impossible to install an entire HVAC unit without a little help, so I usually hire a laborer on days when I have more than one installation scheduled for the week. I can always find day laborers that are willing to make cash money. Last weekend, I finally broke down and purchased some new office equipment for the business center. I have been hand writing receipts for four months, because the computer hasn’t been working. I decided to buy a brand new computer, printer, and a fax machine for the business office. I got a great deal from a local office supply shop that sells refurbished materials. I was expecting to spend several thousands of dollars on all of the new equipment, but I found a lot of items on sale. Every step I take in the right direction is one more reason that my HVAC company will be successful.
