One might also ask who started in this business by owning or operating a gas station?

December, 1980. Newspaper ad said "Master electrician, your license your tools".



I interviewed and got the job.



For J&F, I've been an electrician (qualifier), installation manager, service/installation manger, branch manager, estimator/project manager.



While working for myself I did installs, bought the equipment from J&F and tried to get the customer to call J&F for service.



Now, I just watch CNBC and goof off.
