well college is your first step though your dad could always teach you a few things to help you prepare

if your dad owns the company, get him to take you on part time as an apprentice. You can still go to college and get qualified at the same time.

Basic swearing, telephone call avoidance, over estimates in billing, and football violence in your private life are all basics. Once perfected, you can move on up to how to try and seduce the customers wife, using unpleasant sexualised language in front of children, and all round ineptness. Lol

If your dad owns his own plumbing company......Ask him what the first step is !

Better speak to your dad then - that would be the first step. If he says it is OK, then He can arrange for you to be trained. Alternatively, his heart may be set on you going to dancing school and become the ballet star he never was. Good luck.
