I recently went separate ways with my long term dealer partner. Both of us started off as friends at a homeowners solutions convention plus ended up setting a partnership dealer 3 weeks later. Before then, I was stuck in a dead end task I had been trying to walk out of. This opportunity turned things around. However, numerous years into the partnership, every one of us were dealing with mistrust plus misuse of dealer finances. With my finance background plus the desire to uphold ethical values of a professional entrepreneur, I could not take it. Sold my shares plus set up my dealer. Both of us had employees who would handle everything, here I was trying to juggle everything alone! My first plus most high-priced mistake was to promise my old plus new clients to wait out a new shipment of heat plus air conditioning system products I had made. But because of the miscalculation of the arrival date, the products ended up arriving halfway into the Winter time season. I lost a lot of orders on boiler installation equipment, central heating assembly parts, oil furnace parts, HEPA filter, programmable control unit, electric heat pump, plus smart Heating, Ventilation and A/C. My aim was to become a distributor so I wasn’t entirely prepared for other market needs care about actual boiler service or installation of tepid water boiler so I did not even need to hire an Heating, Ventilation and A/C repairman. So I ended up holding onto my supplies until the season passed. I was banking my competitive edge on supplying whole home heating component plus improvised electric fireplace suites for the modern homes. I was blissful to learn that I wasn’t the only a single facing supply chain complications since my former partner also faced stock outages due to stock mismanagement by the employees I left behind.
