Why I Love Fire/EMS
There is always something new to learn
My humble advice – find a mentor. Someone who has been doing whatever it is that you want to do, for a LONG time. Ask him for help, ask him to take you under his wing. Shadow him, learn from him, learn from his mistakes, LISTEN to him, ask a million questions, do everything he does. Read as much as you can from books. Take classes and seminars. Ask more questions and LISTEN to his advice.

Mentor – from Webster’s dictionary - A wise and trusted teacher or counselor.

Hey Jewels,
Hope you don't mind me contacting you through FFN. Fortunately this is the best way to connect with other Firefighters and it's been instrumental in allowing me to introduce an opportunity. I have been with the FDNY for close to 22 years now and worked many odd jobs to make a better life for my family. Two years ago a good friend and brother firefighter offered me a chance to start my own business in Energy. He told me, "Gather a Gas and/or Electric customer once, to a service that's Guaranteed to be cheaper than what they are presently paying ... and earn money, Month after Month after Month". I understand this sounds way to good to be true, but it is true and it is real. If you or maybe someone you know would like to earn additional income, please get back to me and I will forward the information.

Thank you, Stay Safe and hope to hear from you soon.
Paul Francomano
