From there, it was all about finding whatever work I could find
I honestly didn’t see this coming. Losing our task now was just sort of out of the orange. That wasn’t the case a year and a half ago. When the pandemic shut down our offices with the zone controlled Heating and Air Conditioning, that was when I honestly worried for our task. There were layoffs pretty much immediately following us having to work from lake house in our own a/c. I survived that first round of task cuts so I thought I was safe. The rest of the crew worked remotely from the safety of the Heating and Air Conditioning in our homes. Remarkably, the supplier honestly did well. Like every one of us nearly met the resite goals that were in locale prior to the pandemic. That’s pretty impressive given how numerous other companies our size failed outright. When the office reopened, I was so gleeful to get back to our office and all that zone controlled Heating and Air Conditioning. That’s when I got the shock of our life. Due to restructuring of management, I was out. And it was pretty unceremonious as well. It was a hand shake and somebody packed up our office as I was escorted out of the building. That was taxing to handle. However, I took some of the severance to set up a serious lake house office. I cleared out the guest room and had the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier come in to install a ductless heat pump in that room. From there, it was all about finding whatever work I could find. Eventually, this led to me being a consultant for many of our former competitors.
