Difficult times hit the hardest, however some catch us unaware, but some ease us into it! For a decade, I worked for an HVAC dealer who had supplier all year round, supplying retailers with hybrid HVAC systems.
But when the global epidemic struck, few supplies could leave the state, plus even fewer retailers reMained in supplier locally, and cuts were made, plus the supplier laid off numerous professionalsâ€¦ Luckily I stayed behind as an HVAC serviceman but at half pay.
Although I was retained, the checks were fewer plus far apart. Foreseeing the worst, I moved from my more than one home office uptown rental dwelling into a trailer park to chop on costs plus sustain my family of 3â€¦ Here I created a few brochures to market myself as a heating plus cooling handyman. It took a while to pick, but I was often tied up reprogramming or fixing temperature controls, loose ductworks, air conditioner filter, plus ductwork sealing when calls started coming in, then even the local farmland nearby hired myself and others to service their steam boiler, but the engagement was too large for myself and others to handle alone, so I passed the task to my new director in exchange for a cut. Most of the trailers were run down, plus even though an A/C was the last on numerous to-do lists for the families, the tropical climate couldn’t let them stay without a functioning cooling or heating device. Even my location needed official temperature control, plus since I couldn’t afford a modern HVAC for sale, I had to improvise. My side hustle picked so well that I resigned with no pay for more than one weeks from my director but, I was making enough to live on, however performing an HVAC upgrade acquired myself and others the most, but they were genuinely few plus out of city since word went around fast regarding my affordable services.
