When my wife was transferred to a new state for work, my life was turned upside down. I had a busy and thriving air conditioning repair business, and I thought we would live there forever. I spent two years making the air conditioning repair business a success, and I had to close my doors and start over. I had no choice but make the best of an awful situation. My wife could not say no to the transfer, because she received a huge promotion and a significant raise in pay. It was a really big deal, and I didn’t want her to say no. Even if I was unhappy to move, it was a major career move for my wife. I scouted the new area for months, before choosing a location for my air conditioning repair business. I chose an industrial complex, where there was a plumbing business located already. When I was meeting with the realtor to make the final plans on the location, the owner of the plumbing company came to say hello. I told him about the air conditioning repair business and our move. The owner was really nice and offered me a great deal. He was happy to recommend me to any plumbing jobs that needed an air conditioning repair, if I would recommend his company for any jobs where a customer asked for a plumbing repair. It seemed like a great way to advertise, when my air conditioning business was still new to the area. I’ve been here for a few months, and it’s been slow so far. There are more air conditioning repair businesses in this area, so it’s going to take a lot of advertising to get my name out there.
