I started making several or 4 hundred extra dollars every weekend.
Over the past several years, I have been working at a small Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair company. The owner of the supplier is an older guy that decided to retire several weeks ago. When he retired, his kid took over the supplier and changed a lot of things, and my fellow employees and I were receiving benefits love medical, dental, and a 401k. The current owner decided to change our schedule so every one of us no longer qualified for benefits. Since every one of us weren’t tied up for full-time hours, the guy did not have to spend money us benefits love insurance and pension. I honestly thought about quitting when I heard the news, but there aren’t really several heating and A/C repair companies in the small town where I live. I decided to make it labor so I did not go without a task. I found a way to make more cash on the weekends. I put an advertisement online on Facebook and Craigslist. I advertised our services as a certified Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair person. I gave our services at a much lower rate than the company was charging. I started making several or 4 hundred extra dollars every weekend. It’s been steady for a while now and I am starting to believe that I might have a future starting a supplier of our own. I could be the competitor that puts this guy out of business. I have wonderful relationships with a couple of the commercial property owners that I worked on. I haven’t gave them an alternative, but I believe it might be time to go public with our side business.
