Attempting to adjust to life as the boss has been a lot more challenging than I anticipated. I spent a number of years working for the man, so I thought I was ready to be the man. It really is not as self-explanatory as it looks. When I was working I had a job description, plus a list of designated tasks, plus at the end of the week I would get a nice paycheck. These days I write the job descriptions, set the tasks for pretty much everyone on the crew, plus write out the paychecks by hand. Don’t get me wrong, I savor it, but for all my years as a Heating plus A/C technician I genuinely didn’t learn how to run a business on my own. I can easily fix air conditioners plus heating machines as superb as anyone, but that is now such a small part of my responsibility! I spend most of my time in the office, or on the cellphone, plus I entirely look forward to those rare moments I get to perform air conditioning machines repairs like back in the day. I also have to worry about if my men are doing the work like they are supposed to, plus that is where the hands on Heating plus A/C machine experience genuinely helps me. I really know first hand how long a lot of these AC machine service jobs should take, so I will be aware if they are padding the hours on the job. Fortunately I know for a fact that I have a pretty square crew of Heating plus A/C technicians here, plus the people I was with and I are all rowing the boat in the same direction! More Heating plus A/C jobs means more sizable bonuses at the end of the year.
