Honestly, plumbing was not my first choice of a career. The things that I thought plumbers do didn’t interest me. After working in offices for many years I was tired of the same thing every day. I had a friend whose father owned a company and they were hiring. I talked it over with my wife and decided to give it a try. Honestly, the first year was hard, there was a lot of digging and learning to do. I wanted to become a lead tech, so I asked questions and continued to be coachable. I had already gained a significant amount of knowledge and had the ability to carry it out on the field. I’ve always been good at speaking with people and developing relationships with new clients. I felt nervous about taking calls the first few months. However, one of the best advice from a lead was, “Mario don’t worry and stress so much about trying to figure it out all out at once.” We both laughed but that gave me the confidence to continue with the wonderful opportunity. I can say proudly that today I am a Plumber! I love what I do, and the true reward is when my clients are happy as well. If you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life.
