The country is pretty divided now over a lot of problems, but I wanted to share a story about how America is easily the greatest country in the world. It is a land that still offers dreams and hope to those who previously had none. Every one of us may get all wrapped up in political drama and fight over odd issues our society faces, but I like to know at the end of the day, people can realize this is an amazing place to live. I am an immigrant, and I moved here several years ago to provide a better life for our family. I started teaching myself HVAC service when I was back in the old country, using the internet and any heating & cooling service textbooks I could find. I had only ever touched a simple heating system before, never with a central gas furnace. But I learned so much about heating & cooling systems, it was really easy to find an apprenticeship when I legally moved to the US. For several years I worked for a really kind woman who owned an HVAC service company, and I made no secret that one day I wanted to open up by own A/C & heating system business. She was really supportive of my dreams, and when she was ready to retire she offered to sell me the business, which had an established clientele of HVAC equipment customers. Now I am a legal citizen with my own HVAC service business, and it couldn’t happen anywhere except in the USA.
