I believe that my customers will use my sister company for plumbing services if they are partnered with me
I’ve been trying to get an investor for my business so I can grow. I don’t have the capital right now, but I certainly have the potential for growth. Earlier this week I had a breakfast meeting with two guys. Honestly, I didn’t know if they would really find much interest in my small heating and air conditioning repair company, but they did agree to the meeting. We sat down over eggs, bacon, ham, and grits and the two guys allowed me to present my argument. Right now I only handle residential heating and air conditioning repairs. I can’t afford the insurance that is required to handle many commercial clients, but I have a number of clients that would use my services if I had the proper insurance. In order to handle all of the commercial and industrial heating and air conditioning services, I’m going to need to hire a few additional employees. That means I’m going to need employee insurances such as workman’s comp and liability. The two guys that I met with have a plumbing company and they currently do not handle any heating and air conditioning repairs. I believe that my customers will use my sister company for plumbing services if they are partnered with me. I cannot guarantee that for a fact, but I am 95% sure. I’ve had a few discussions with several of my biggest potential customers and they know that will be a large part of my plan. I didn’t know if the guys would agree to fund my growth, but they were actually ready to sign a sign before we even had our first cup of coffee.
