Recently I was asked to interview for a job that I had not applied for. I have always believed that you should at least listen to what is being offered. I have already spent five hours talking to the company over a series of three interviews. I have one more scheduled for next week to go make a final determination on which way we want to proceed. They are a reputable company that is looking to expand and they feel that I would make a great fit in their company. It is an opportunity that could be very lucrative. The position is for me to go back in the HVAC trade as a salesman. A position that I had spent eleven years doing, prior to becoming an inspector.
My inspection business has grown faster than what I would have ever imagined and I am happy being an inspector. I love the freedom of being my own boss and knowing that I am truly the only person that affects my income. However, I miss working with other people and being involved in a team atmosphere. One thing that I do worry about is in ten years, when I turn 50, will I still want to be crawling around nasty crawlspaces and 140 degree attics in the summer.
If you were in my shoes, what would you do?
They are open to me doing inspections on the side.
