Episode 4: SCP with Mark Hernandez

image.png

We had the pleasure of interviewing Mark Hernandez from SCP. Mark has been a great asset for us at Brothers Pool Service. 

Greg went into SCP one day and asked if there was anyone they knew of in the field that could help us expand our business. They said they may know someone and then gave Mark our number.

We all talked and it turned into a great friendship for us. Mark helped us expand our business by showing us how to pull lights and even helped us install our first automation panel. He has been a huge help in making us what we are today. 

Mark is one of the most knowledgeable guys in the industry. He knows so much, but if he doesn’t know the answer he knows someone that does. He is always willing to help wherever he can. 

We talk about a lot of cool things in this episode such as Skateboarding pools, SCP history, the future of the industry, and some great advice on how to sell yourself and your business to your customer. 

There is a ton of great advice for you guys, so we hope you all enjoy.
