I am a university student, and I don’t come from a wealthy family. I always knew that if I wanted to go to university, it would be my responsibility. I tried to choose a university that wouldn’t put myself in debt for life. That is a lot harder than you would guess these days. I have been working and saving since I was in high school. It became clear that I needed a better job to pay for university. I just didn’t know what I could do more of. Well, this recent summer, the answer hit me like a ton of bricks. I tagged along on a beach trip with some friends. My girlfriends all had easier lives and were always nice enough to invite me along for free. It was so sizzling at the beach that day that you couldn’t survive without a cooling system. I overheard someone on the beach talking about how their rental didn’t have any AC. Then the other girl suggested renting a window box cooling system. Who would have thought that was even a thing, renting cooling units? I looked into it further to find there was one rental agency on the entire island. I was going to university for business and I started considering opening my own A/C rental store. If I could get just a single backer and start slow, I could genuinely have something here. I was able to get setup in time for the next season. My air conditioner rental company took off like wildfire. It was so exciting to accomplish my own company goals. Not only did it help pay for my university, it also gave me a real confidence boost to know I was learning something!
