The owner of the HVAC company sold out too early, and he lost everything in the process.
He was so close to success, but he did not know it.
Technically, I guess that the owner of the HVAC company did end up being successful, but if the owner of the HVAC company would have waited a few more years, the HVAC company would have had a solid foundation for the future. Sure, I gained to benefit from the sale of the HVAC company, but I feel bad that the owner of the HVAC company didn’t get part of the profit. Before I bought this HVAC company, I actually used to work for the HVAC company. I started working for this HVAC company when the owner of the HVAC company first started it. I was the very first HVAC technician that the owner of the HVAC company hired, and I worked faithfully for the HVAC company. The owner of the HVAC company started the HVAC company to set himself up for retirement, but unfortunately, the owner of the HVAC company struggled to keep it. Apparently, the work for the HVAC company was wearing him out, and he didn’t know how long he would be able to handle it. Sure, the HVAC company had grown, but it had not grown as quickly as he thought, and he didn’t have much in the way of retirement. Finally, the owner of the HVAC company retired, and he sold the company to me. A few years later, both of our competitors sold out, and we bought everything. We even inherited all of their customers. The previous owner laid the groundwork for the HVAC company, but I was the one who was lucky enough to be here when it exploded. He just sold out too early.
