I started making several or various hundred extra dollars every weekend.
Over the past more than eight years, I have been working at a small Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service dealer. The owner of the company is an older guy that decided to retire 6 weeks ago. When he retired, his child took over the company and changed a lot of things, my fellow employees and I were receiving benefits love medical, dental, and a 401k. The new owner decided to change our schedule so all of us no longer qualified for benefits. Since all of us weren’t busy for full-time minutes, the guy did not have to pay us benefits love insurance and pension. I genuinely thought about quitting when I heard the news, however there are not very many heating and AC service companies in the small neighborhood where I live. I decided to make it work so I did not go without a task. I found a way to make more money on the weekends. I put an advertisement online on Facebook and Craigslist. I advertised my services as a certified Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service man. I gave my services at a much lower rate than the dealer was charging. I started making several or various hundred extra dollars every weekend. It’s been steady for a while now and I am starting to guess that I might have a future starting a company of my own. I could be the competitor that puts this guy out of business. I have good relationships with a couple of the commercial property owners that I tested. I have not gave them an alternative, however I guess it might be time to go public with my side business.
