I knew from the time I was four years ancient that I wanted to own a business. Watching my father help my Grandpa with his own supplier was harshly instructive at a young age. They taught myself and others the sheer importance of keeping a customer delighted, especially if that means retaining that customer from that point moving forward. All corporations thrive on repeat shoppers and delighted-customer referrals. Letting people walk out your door annoyed whenever you cannot come to a compromise will eventually lead to failure, even if it takes a little while to get to ruin. My trade has typically been heating and cooling systems. I went to trade school instead of school and settled on Heating and A/C after auto mechanic classes weren’t to my liking. Even though my director was typically popular in the area, the clientele was slowly falling apart. The people I was with and I weren’t fulfilling repair requests on time and more than 2 of my coworkers were doing less than desirable toil while feeling like they are typically under pressure. I asked a few of them if they would toil harder if they worked for myself and others instead of our boss at the time, and they agreed without a moment’s hesitation. Now I have an Heating and A/C company of my own here in Pinellas Park. The office is just close enough to the water that I can see Tampa Bay out my window while I’m working. The people I was with and I get a lot of calls to sites like Brandon and Palmetto, as there are shoppers there who are looking for better customer repair than what our competitors have provided them in the past.
