Coral Springs, FL, 28th March 2023, ZEXPRWIRE, IdeaMensch magazine recently featured All Year Cooling and Heating president Tommy Smith to discuss a wide range of subjects. IdeaMensch is an interview platform for entrepreneurs, makers, and doers. Its purpose is to inspire action through the curation of daily interviews and content. It has conducted over 6,000 interviews with entrepreneurs, visionaries, and nonprofit leaders. Tommy Smith is a notable entrepreneur and business owner who is known for his insights on leadership, business ownership, and the HVAC industry. In the interview, Mr. Smith offered his thoughts on a wide range of topics on entrepreneurism, the HVAC industry, and how to lead a successful business.
In his interview, Tommy Smith covered a wide range of topics, including where the idea from All Year Cooling and Heating came from, what his typical day looks like and how he makes it productive, and how he brings ideas to life. In response to a question about what trend excites him, Mr. Smith replied, “From a product standpoint, I am seeing more people take an interest in energy-efficient products. Everyone wants to save money on their utility bills, especially in Weston, Florida, or any part of South Florida, where it can be pretty brutal for half of the year. I am most excited about the smaller, more energy efficient cooling options that we offer, such as our compact size wall unit or even a blower style that is small enough to install in your closet!”
Tommy Smith commented on a habit of his that makes him more productive as an entrepreneur: “I constantly try to improve my craft. I think the ability to be the best at something is very important and constantly learning how you can do that better will always help you as an entrepreneur. Learning about lean startup, SCRUM master, or any other management system has helped me improve as a manager of people and processes.”
Mr. Smith went on to discuss what advice he would give his younger self, something that is true that no one else would agree with him on, and something he recommends that everyone does as an entrepreneur. He also explained a strategy that has helped to grow his business: “We have tried a variety of successful marketing ideas including print advertising, event sponsorships, internet marketing efforts on Google Adwords, Facebook ads, etc… For us though the best return on investment has been our website with its online store front management system. So much work goes into every single sale that comes through our site. Our team works tirelessly to ensure each product meets our clients’ needs.”
Tommy Smith also opened up about what a failure he had in his early days of entrepreneurship and how he overcame it: “My early years as owner were pretty tough. I had a terrible time hiring the right people and bringing in good customer service. I found that everyone acted like they were doing me a favor by working for my company and taking advantage of every situation to make extra money. That played out through decreased work ethic, lack of attention to detail, and increased theft. After much trial and error we finally came up with processes and systems that would be effective at making sure everyone gave us their best effort as well as ensuring that our customers got the quality services they deserved!”
