When I was still active about to graduate from school, I can recall how stressed my parents were about me! I was never that interested in classes or sports, and my parents had no clue in the slightest what I would do once I graduated.
To be totally honest, I believe that they were under the impression that I would be flipping burgers at some fast food diner until I retired! Even though they had no idea at all what work path I was going to take, I particularly did have a good idea in my freshman year.
I had seen a pretty interesting ad on cable about a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C machine maintenance school that was located in town! When they were explaining a little about what the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C machine workers do and how much currency you can make starting off in this specific field, I knew right then that it would fit me just right. I didn’t want to waste years of my youth resting in a school class simply taking notes, I wanted to be out in the real world working with good people, making pretty good currency! Now that I am pushing 40, I have been in this industry for some time now. I believe it’s clear to my parents that the path I chose was an excellent choice. I have moved up the ranks from a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C machine apprentice to now a manager of a single one of the finest Heating, Ventilation, and A/C machine companies in North America. Now that I have little ones on my own, I don’t even fret about what I believe they are going to do when they reach the right age… Because if they become anything at all like their father, they will totally figure it out when they must.
