“Passion: I am incredibly passionate about my work with All Year Cooling Weston and it is what drives me to continue growing and expanding our business. Integrity: We have always been committed to providing the best possible customer service and products, and this commitment to integrity has helped us to build a strong reputation in the industry. Perseverance: It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be successful in this industry, and I have learned over the years that nothing comes easy. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort necessary to achieve your goals.”
When asked about a time in which she had to endure an uncomfortable situation that men don’t typically endure to achieve success, Erin Smith shared this story:
“This is from just a couple years ago. I had the privilege of being invited to be part of a round table discussion with other female business leaders from in and around Weston, Florida. At one point I was asked about my experiences as a woman in a leadership position, especially since I work in what many consider a ‘man’s trade’. The host basically made me feel like I was on trial, and he grilled me with questions that were irrelevant and condescending. I very confidently rebutted his attempts and made the crowd feel 100% behind me since I was able to easily demonstrate my industry knowledge and also speak to the tremendous success we have had at All Year Cooling Weston. I would say this is just one example of what many women often have to deal with in difficult and hostile environments in order to achieve success.”
