How did you get started in the HVAC & Plumbing business Dan?
So, turns out baseball was not the career I thought it was going to be. Being a pitcher I suffered from a sore neck from whipping my head around to watch the ball fly over the fence. Instead of baseball stardom, I started working for a local plumber when I was 19 years old. The owner, was the most decent man I know. He treated everyone fair and honest. That experience laid the foundation for my desire to own and operate my own HVAC company the exact same way. While it’s not a big secret, people just want to be treated fairly and honestly. If you do your very best to deliver that day in and day out, success will follow.
And you Jim?
Well, when I didn’t get drafted into the NFL… Just kidding. My father owned an HVAC business, which I began working for in high school. Dad didn’t play favorites, he had me start at the bottom and work my way up, through every single position. From helper to managing the company, he was my role model as a father and as a mentor in business. He built his company on the desire to always provide good service and do an excellent job for every customer. Which is at the core of all we do at DM Select Heating and Cooling. Having that laser focus in common is the “why” behind Dan and I becoming business partners. It helps guide every decision we make, every day.
