My cousin and I opened our own small business last year. We absolutely adore our little art shop! We sell handmade crafts, as well as other local artwork in our adorable little store. My cousin makes our products by hand, while I handle the majority of our monetary issues. We also have had a fairly productive year up to this point, and I would venture wager that my cousin and I are rather enjoying ourselves! We did run into a slight problem earlier in the winter season, however. We were forced to fix our pathetic HVAC system. My cousin and I were at work in our shop a few weeks ago, when my cousin noticed that our shop’s furnace did not feel like it was heating the shop. We were both extremely concerned that we would not have the capacity to fix the central heating unit. After all, we were just at the start as a business. Thankfully, my cousin has a friend who works in the heating and cooling industry as technician. This HVAC technician was ready to come by our shop immediately and assess our furnace troubles at no cost. It turned out that the HVAC issue was an easy one for him, and he fixed it quickly! We were grateful for this furnace expertise, so we eagerly gave him something from our shop. I think that my cousin’s friend understood that for a new small business like our shop, a massive heating and cooling bill might have set us back significantly. If it occurred at the drastically wrong time, such a heating and cooling bill might have even bankrupted us. We will be keeping his number close by just in case!
