Last week, my son came to me and told me he no longer wanted to be an HVAC technician.
He had worked long and hard to become an HVAC technician.
He put in many hours and was the top technician in the HVAC company he worked for. This year, he was nominated as top HVAC technician in our entire area. We were so proud of him, and I couldn’t understand why he wanted to do something other than his chosen career as an HVAC technician. He handed me the coffee he had brought home with him and told me to have a sit. I sat down at the kitchen table and told him to speak. He explained he wasn’t talking about getting out of HVAC, but he just wanted to take his career in a different direction at the moment. He was considering buying out the HVAC company that was currently owned by his boss. The owner of the HVAC company was getting older, and he had no sons. He asked my son if he would consider purchasing the HVAC company from him. He also informed him about the position that was opening up at the local community college. They needed a new HVAC technical instructor, and he thought my son was perfect for the position. I’m sure he was reeling with the opportunities that were being thrown at him in such a short time, and I wanted to assure him. He was one of the best HVAC technicians in the area, and I was sure he could handle whatever he did with his career.
