I moved to Phoenix a few years after I got divorced.
- I needed a current start in a place that was as far away from our ex-partner as I could get, however phoenix was a 2000 mile drive from our old home.
I packed a few things into our car and I drove the whole way. I only stopped for gas and I slept in our car so I would not have to spend a lot of money. I must have smelled bad by the time I arrived in Phoenix, but one of our old school friends was already living in the city, and he let myself and others crash on his couch for a couple of weeks. I started working at an HVAC commercial maintenance provider in Phoenix, AZ, but jack and I found a place where both of us could share the rent on a three family room house, we got another roommate to help us with the bills. It was pretty nice living with two roommates for a while and I was able to save quite a bit of money, and eventually I decided to open a company of our own. I had saved enough money to secure a space and I had some clients that wanted to follow me, then things were going well for the first few years and then sales were down. I tried advertising in the newspaper and online. I finally got a website and our sales began to increase. The website easily helps our small company grow. I worked with a supplier that made it possible for myself and others to advertise our HVAC company online; Now I can absolutely be found when someone searches for an HVAC commercial or residential company in the Phoenix, AZ area.
