Many people scoff at the thought of working as a plumber or even an HVAC technician. What they fail to realize is that handymen are a vital part of society and perform the dirty work, so others do not have too. Another thing people refuse to understand is that handymen can make a good income, as long as they acquire the right position. How would you like to establish yourself as a plumber, mechanic or HVAC installer? Sure, you could enroll in your local community college, but that would consume several years of your life.
