“Operation Pineapple Express”

Featuring Scott Mann

Intro: Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity, the leading podcast for residential service contractors, sponsored by Service Roundtable and hosted by David Heimer.

David Heimer: Hi, this is David Heimer. Before we get into our podcast, I have two short announcements. First, I am really proud to welcome our very first podcast sponsor, Daikin Comfort Technologies. I’ve always been a fan of Daikin Goodman and Amana, so it’s particularly gratifying to have them sponsor us. Among my long list of reasons to like them is this. Have you ever had a tour of their HVAC manufacturing facility outside of Houston? If not, you should go. It’s totally amazing. And get this, it’s the largest HVAC manufacturing facility in the world, and they build it right here in the USA. Isn’t that awesome? So big welcome to Daikin Comfort Technologies, and thank you for being our sponsor. Secondly, for the first time ever, I’m not doing this podcast interview. Instead, Pete Danielson, who is our VP of market development, is doing this interview with Scott Mann. And Scott Mann is our keynote speaker at Service World Expo 2022. It’s a great interview. You’re going to love it. And I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at Service World Expo.

Pete Danielson: Welcome to the show. This is Pete Danielson sitting in for David Heimer. Our special guest today is retired Lieutenant Colonel Scott Mann, a former Green Beret. Welcome to the show, Colonel.

Scott Mann: Thanks, Pete. Good to see you.

Pete Danielson: And can I start by saying, may I call you Scott?

Scott Mann: Please, please do.

Pete Danielson: Since we are friends and I felt like I needed to ask for permission, but I felt like it would be more comfortable to go that way. Is that alright?

Scott Mann: Yeah, I’m flattered, but absolutely.
