I was talking to my friend the other day and he was telling me about this situation he was facing.
He talked about possibly running the family HVAC company with his half brother.
His half brother was disappointed though when he was not in the will to inherit the HVAC company. The reason he thought was because his half brother might want to try to sell the HVAC company and not actually run the business. My friend feels he did the right thing taking over the HVAC company as it was written in his father’s will. I honestly felt that I couldn’t blame him for choosing to run the HVAC company on his own, but I could see how it was a pretty awkward situation. I have been trying to tell him that he shouldn’t feel bad at all because the HVAC business was rightfully his. I guess that might be something his half brother never agrees with. Anyway, my buddy has been doing well with taking over the business. He honestly didn’t expect his father to pass away so suddenly. He was entirely devastated and he made a final promise to his father that he would make him proud by running the HVAC company the way he would have wanted. He has a lot of great ideas and he even has been putting together a program that allows people with financial hardships to make smaller payments and pay a little less for the HVAC services performed. I think it’s a really smart program and that’s something I’m sure would make his father proud.
