Adapting to Change in Your Industry

Richard: The company has been around 42 years already. I bought in as an owner 8 years ago. I have actually been working for the company for 27 years.

Levi: What inspired you to get into an entrepreneurial role?

Richard: I kind of hit the top of the managerial role here at the company. When that happened I thought “Is this where I stop or do I make the jump to Owner?”.

Levi: If you had a piece of advice you could pass on to someone, what would it be?

Richard: Hard work and change! Whether you are in the legacy part of your business, it’s going to take hard work to consistently keep moving and going forward, otherwise, you are going to become stagnant. Even furnace models have changed. Air conditioner models have changed. If we’re not staying on top of that, we are outdating ourselves. You have to change. If you are not willing to change, you are going to become a dinosaur. We don’t have dinosaurs anymore.
