He loves to inspire others to chase their dreams at full force, just as he has in his own life and business. Greg is still the working President of his company and puts the same systems and ideas in to place at his own laboratory, McAfee Heating and Air Conditioning Company, in Dayton, Ohio. Greg resides in Beavercreek, Ohio. Several years ago, Greg sent articles to national trade magazines and many were published, which led to coaching, which led to business boot camps/revivals, and now The Greg McAfee Show. All these services help HVAC business owners think different and help grow their companies. One of the most fun things I’ve done is disrupt the HVAC industry in our market. Are you a disruptor or a disruptee in your market? You have to change some of the ways you do business, you can’t do the same old things and expect different results. I talk about how you can still generate business in the slow seasons. One of the biggest ways I set my HVAC company apart was: corporate office feel, started 8 to 8 at the same great rate, and same day installation or it was FREE! (We never had to give anything away)
