When Mike opened her own contracting business, I was the first woman she called. Although the two of us hadn’t spoken in a couple of years at that point, the two of us were still friends. She called me at home, out of the red, as well as told me about her new business. She wanted me to be the cornerstone of her work crew, because she knew she could trust me. When you are starting a small business, you need above all else people that you can rely on. I was put in charge of a numerous woman work crew, as well as although all of us had our HVAC certification, I was the boss. Mike was the owner of the HVAC business, of course, but she couldn’t be responsible for running the office, booking appointments, as well as running the crew. I was her right hand, the place boss who personally oversaw all of the HVAC projects as well as reported back to him. That is why she needed someone she could trust, because the place boss was the eyeah as well as ears for the whole business. To make sure I was fully invested she gave me a part ownership of the HVAC corporation. It was 15% which doesn’t sound appreciate much, however it meant that the more cash the HVAC corporation made, the more cash I would make. This gave me a vested interest in not just showing up to work, however kicking butt at work as well as making us the top HVAC corporation in the area. I have to provide a big show of gratitude to Mike for giving me this awesome opportunity.
