I have been working as an independent heat and a/c specialist for many years, but it wasn’t so easy to get to this point to where I could be an independent heating and air conditioning worker.
It was a matter of getting my business off the ground which took about 3 to 4 years of very hard work! There was even one point where I was not sure if I was going to be able to keep going.
I thought at one point that I was going to have to start applying for jobs with local heating and air conditioning companies to work for them as one of their certified heat and a/c specialists. But thankfully this did not have to happen. I was able to keep float (just barely) and keep on working towards building regular clients and a steady workflow as my own boss in the heating and air conditioning business. Today I actually have people that work for me, so I am not alone. But we are all independent heat and a/c specialists working for my independent small heating and cooling company that I built. I can pay my employees now. This is something I would have never imagined would ever be possible in those first few years or so when things were looking rather grim. All the hard work really paid off. If you keep at something and do not give up, you can succeed! This is what I have learned in being a formally struggling independent heating and air conditioning specialist.
