For a very long while I worked at a task I didn’t like, until the day the bosses just pushed me too far.
Working in a sales environment was never enjoyable to me, I just did it to put food on the table.
In time I grew to hate it more and more, because of the type of things they wanted us to sell regularly… I made the decision to put my foot down, and they decided to fire me for doing so. I actually felt sort of like an immense weight had been lifted off my shoulders that day… For years my brother-in-law had asked me about joining him in the Heating and A/C machine industry. His name is Bobby and he runs a small storefront that specializes in fixing and refurbishing cooling machines and gas furnaces. He does not handle industrial tasks, and very rarely will he install a completely new Heating and A/C machine. Instead he focuses on repairing and refurbishing old Heating and A/C systems, and then he is able to resell them for a profit. Doing it this way allows him to sell quality HVAC machines at a price that everyone in our area can easily afford. I went to task for him at the shop the following week, even though I knew little about cooling machines. He assured me he would handle most of the Heating and A/C machine work in the beginning, while I handled the patrons and got us some new business. All those years toiling away as a salesman was very useful to me, because now I could put my experience to work for an amazing local Heating and A/C machine supplier that helps people.
