I have been hanging around here for quite a while jut not sure when I first got involved. I know it was after I met Dan in New Hampshire. We were both presenters at a training seminar.

    Thanks to all! When we started, Amazon had 250 employees and sold only books. I asked our web guy at the time to link to them. He told me they would never make it because people looking for books would never go to a URL with a name like that.

People kept telling me "you cant learn off the internet" Hands on and listen to the old guys... well I'd go to work and say I learned it this way or the guys on Heatinghelp said "do this"... amazing fireworks!! LOL Now I'm the old guy and I tell everyone I can. go here and listen/learn!!

    1997 I was working for Honeywell back then and had just started going on the road with my Gas Appliance Service Training and Consulting company. I left the gas company in 1994 and worked for Honeywell 1994 until 1999. In 1999 I opened my training center in Warren RI. So if memory serves me I joined HH around 1998. I think that was right before I actually met Dan face to face in New Hampshire. It has been quite a journey.

    I want to say thank you to the Holohan family for allowing me to be here for so long. You have been a great help to my business along the way.
