When I was born, I lived in what certain people may consider to be a third world country. My mother got a job on a fishing expedition & never returned. So then it was just me, my siblings, & our father. Unfortunately, my dad was more interested in studying science fiction pulp novels than helping out our family. So my siblings and I were fending for ourselves, essentially homeless, foraging for whatever food we could find. With all that in mind, I am actually proud of how far my siblings & I have come. Nowadays, we all live right here in the states & we have started our own business that is working out fairly to say the least. With the help of a local church, each of us educated ourselves in Heating & A/C technology. There was a local training program that was free of charge, meant to help the local climate control industry prosper. This program was a huge success for us. Each of us now run the heating & cooling supply store right downtown. It has been a quite fruitful 5 years of sales for our Heating & A/C shop. Not only do we help shoppers find the device that they need, but the we also do air conditioner & oil furnace repairs. So far our customer base is all over the county & our climate control device is sourced from manufacturers all over the world. Each of us have a strong Heating & A/C servicing network built up. Our staff currently consists of 35 knowledgeable heating & cooling suppliers who all went through a rigorous training program. Who would have thought that gas furnaces & air conditioners would help us establish ourselves among the mildly successful middle class?
