"Since I have already found my life's work, instead of my "credentials" how about just a little about me -I believe that nothing in life worth having comes easy.

Life is short so if you want to make a difference, start now. I believe in integrity and honesty in business and in life. If you are not strong enough to tell the truth, you are not strong enough to succeed.My life is simple; I love my family, my friends, and my work. My goal is not to be rich and famous, but to be remembered by many as a good man who made a difference.Windy City equipment is my Primary business (Cooking Equipment/Refrigeration/HVAC repair) and we are currently trying to set a new standard for what it means to be a service company. We have free how-to YouTube videos, social media presence, interactive webpage, and now even a mobile app. This, of course, is coupled with recruiting and training the best technicians in the industry and making customer service the highest of priorities with a heavy emphasis on communication.SchaiHi Partners is my secondary business, which is a full-fledged real estate investment firm. We acquire property of all types, all over the country and create Win-Win situations for all parties involved in every transaction."
