It turns out she was 100% right, and I just never saw the truth because I was blinded by the traditional past of HVAC work
I have to admit that for the longest time I wasn’t sure my daughter could run the business. I guess that I still see her as a little girl, even though she is a college educated and self sufficient woman and leader of her own family. I started this company with a van, some tools, and elbow grease, and while maybe we aren’t the biggest company in the world, we surely have grown. My business is my baby, just like my daughter is, so many that’s why they are such a good fit. In her first six months as manager, new HVAC clients have increased by 60%. It is no coincidence that part of the reason for this is that most of our HVAC techs are female now. Heating and cooling repair, like most blue collar jobs, has been male dominated since its inception, but my daughter saw that there was money in changing the status quo. To me it sounded like a risky idea, to bet on the idea that more women would call us for HVAC work if they knew they would get a female tech to help them. It turns out she was 100% right, and I just never saw the truth because I was blinded by the traditional past of HVAC work. A skilled HVAC tech works with their hands and their brains, and me thinking men were just naturally better at it… well, that was wrong. It seems that my daughter is smarter than I gave her credit for, and this HVAC company is in the best possible hands.
