I had no clue what the afternoon had in store for me when I ran into an classmate of mine from high college at the grocery store. However both of us were navy ladies growing up, so this girl and I were consistently on the move. We bonded immediately in high school, as this girl and I traded stories about what we’d seen and where we’d been. But after graduation, neither of us knew where she and I would go. I decided to go into business management, while she decided to pursue a trade college to become a certified heating, ventilation plus air conditioning maintenance specialist. Unfortunately, graduation was the last time this girl and I saw each other. Now, I’m wishing I had followed her footsteps. Within just a year, she was finished school and starting her career. Plus she was able to pay off her financial debt as a student within two years! I just can’t guess how successful she is as heating, ventilation, plus A/C specialist, either. We’ve only been out of high college for five years, plus she’s already making over more than five figures between her plus her partner, who also works in the heating plus air conditioner industry. On the other hand, I’ve only been out of college for a year, and I’m looking at decades of paying off these student loans! I asked her if it was easy to get into the program, plus she said it undoubtedly was – she had no doubt that I was smart enough to become a successful Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C specialist. She advised that I could use those business management skills to make a great career in the parts industry… After all, these heating, ventilation, plus A/C specialists have to have newer, better, more reliable components to repair HVAC systems! I was undoubtedly interested in becoming a Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C specialist just as she did. If she was able to live so comfortably just five years after high college, surely I could do the same in the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C industry!
