I had only talked to my mom’s friend Daria a few times in my adult life.
- Daria always seemed like a real fine lady.
She was just an old childhood friend of my Mom for a long time. She was a superb neighbor of our family for years. Daria never had kids of her which lead to something quite unexpected when she passed away last year. With no children in the picture, her will had left the loft to my sibling and the liquid assets to my parents. Daria had saved the best for last, and left her small Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service supplier to me. This was quite a shock to me, not only because I barely knew the woman, but because I had never expressed any interest in the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C field. As I came to find out, running a business requires a particular set of skills, and knowing how to clean up a/cs was not needed for the AC service business. Daria had a trained 3 guy crew of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C techs, that between them had over 15 years of experience in the field. They could handle all the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service tasks no issue, all I needed to do was run the rest of the company. I had some experience in an office environment, so I was in over my head but unlike Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier I could fake my way through it. After a few months I started to find my place in the business.
