Also, heating and cooling companies are always looking for good skilled workers
Have you always been a person or are you now a young person who thinks it is a nice plan to be your own boss? I am in my late fifties and am thinking about retirement nowadays, and looking back on my life I do realize that I would have probably been better off learning a trade. That is because I have an entrepreneurial spirit. I have done a side hustle, freelance writing, for at least twenty years now, and that is okay but it is not the same as being an entrepreneur. So if you have a child who wants to be his or her own boss, I highly suggest that you teach them to try learning a trade. For example, if your child learns how to be a cosmetologist, she can open her own beauty shop. If your child learned how to be a heating and A/C professional, one day he can also open his own heating and cooling company. Of course, he would have to go to school for it, but most heating and A/C programs are less than two years long. In fact, the tech school near me has a heating and A/C program that is only 16 or 18 weeks long. That’s just a year and four or so months to learn how to be a heating and cooling professional. There are more than three certifications for different things in the heating and A/C industry, plus people in the industry can learn more credentials as they go along. Also, heating and cooling companies are always looking for good skilled workers. After entirely working for other people for a decade or so, it is most likely that your child could decide to open his own heating and cooling business. Then he could be his own boss! The only people that would tell him what to do would be the buyers, because he would always want to be serving them the best way he could.
