    im a JR. My dad is always taking me with him to do jobs with him on the side. I saw how much $$$ he was making and i told him that i wonted to make our own buisness. I have seen him install so many units that im sure i can install them. so i would like to open up my own buisness 50/50 with my pops.

    Stay in high school! Concentrate on learning what your teachers ask you to learn. Learn to write, spell correctly and work on your English grammar skills. Take a business and an accounting class if they are offered. Join the speech club, you will be spending a great deal of time with customers or making a sale.

    In your spare time, if you have any, visit this site.

    Read all the books on the subject that you can find.Make a notebook of the things you know will be hard to remember(and that will be alot)

    Get all of the experience that your father can give.It sounds like he is your best resource right now.

    Stay in school,and get used to it.This trade really requires alot of reading, thinking, and learning,schooling,ect...
