Seems like I genuinely couldn’t have ended up with worse time when it came to going out on my own.

I’d spent a dozen years inside the zone controlled HVAC of the corporate offices before I started my own thing.

And I spent plenty of time preparing to be out on my own. But how do you prepare for a pandemic? The answer is you don’t because you can’t. I had left the commercial HVAC of the office where I worked in the late Summer of 2019. Having an office inside the central air conditioner of my home seemed only logical. It was just me and two other people I had hired. And their tasks could also be done from the heating and cooling of their homes, at least initially. Much of my responsibilities require me to be onsite with the customer. So if I wasn’t laboring from home, I was on a plane or with the customer somewhere else. My support staff was doing the other stuff while I was away providing the services that our fledgling company provided. But when the pandemic came, my superb friend and I had to scramble. The first thing I realized was that I needed to pack up my car, max out the air conditioner and hit the road. Flying was out. So getting to the buyers meant that I needed to be out on the road. And I was out on the road the entire Summer of 2020. But I did find that I could always rely on the mid tier hotels along the highway to provide the most consistent HVAC cooling. That was a good bonus as those hotels genuinely fit my budget as well.
