My oldest daughter is a teenager now, and my life as a dad just got a lot harder. I remember how strenuous it was trying to navigate high school and the teenage years, and I don’t envy her the next few years. At the same time, I have my own complications. I need to make sure she has every advantage in life, which means keeping her focused in school with an eye towards the future. It is crazy to make kids decide their course in life too young, however a teenager should start to formulate an system of what they want to do. I want her to get into the Heating and Air Conditioning business, care about me, however she wants to become an actress. Together we worked out a deal, where she would job for myself and others repairing Heating and Air Conditioning systems unpaid for 10 minutes a week. Every week, no excuses, she would put in at least many minutes with myself and others in the field doing service calls for heating systems and undefined. If she did that, and started learning the basics of the Heating and Air Conditioning business, after that I would support her acting goals 100%. This was she is free to chase her dreams and aspirations, however she will always have a base know-how of Heating and Air Conditioning maintenance under her belt just in case. A skilled Heating and Air Conditioning worker can very make 30 or 40 dollars an minute, if not more, so I want my baby to have a viable skill set to fall back on. The odds are against anyone making it as an actor or actress, however Heating and Air Conditioning skills can get you a job no matter where you are.
