I really can’t believe that I ended up going into the same business as my uncle. Sometimes I think about it and I can’t even fathom what the odds must have been when it came to that! Up until the time that I did a film documentary project for a college class, I always thought that I was going to go into the arts. I used to think that I was going to be a painter or a writer or even a filmmaker but making one certain film ended up changing everything for me. Instead of deciding that I actually wanted to live my life working as a filmmaker, I actually started to think that I wanted to start doing what the subject of my documentary did instead. My uncle owned his own heating and cooling business and he really loved it. The way his eyes lit up when he was telling me about his HVAC business made me stop and question everything that I was doing and my entire life plan. He was very passionate about his HVAC business and about providing the best heating and cooling service available for his customers. By the time I finished up with the project, I had basically decided that I wanted to go into business with my uncle instead. It was really one of the major turning points of my life. Now that we have been working together for the past ten years or so, I could never see myself working somewhere else. I’m really glad that I became an HVAC technician.
