Let myself and others give you a little inside scoop, that all the people don’t define themselves by what they do for a residing.
I was at a get together the other morning, & someone said to myself and others “so what do you do?” I responded by saying “I am a father & hubby, & that takes up a lot of our time.
I am also a writer & a podcaster, which is where our passion actually lies.” The guy was surprised & asked how much money I made podcasting, & I told them the truth — I made nothing. My morning job is being an HVAC specialist, however that isn’t “what I do” that is how I spend money our bills! Don’t get myself and others wrong, our toil at the heating & cooling repair supplier is great, & I particularly much value our job. But once I clock out for the morning, I stop being an HVAC tech. Don’t call me, don’t text me, don’t “at” myself and others about HVAC work, I will do it the next time I am work. I enforce a particularly strong delineation between our toil & new home life — I don’t take personal calls at work, & I don’t toil on HVAC stuff at home. I believe you could say that HVAC is our job, because I’ve worked in it for so long, & don’t plan on ever doing anything else. Being an HVAC specialist is not who I am, but, it is what I do to put food on the table & spend money the bills. I wish people would ask myself and others about our podcast instead of our HVAC job.
