077 Pinks and Blues
077 Pinks and Blues Episode 77: Show Notes Water treaters run test. That’s a fact. However, the tests should never run the water treater. How well do you know your tests? Do you know how they work? Do you know how to tell when your tests are “lying” to you? Many of you have written in asking about specific testing questions. Today's show will not only answer those questions but hopefully get you to start questioning every test that you run.

076 The One with the Consulting Client Episode 76: Show Notes Have you ever wondered what would happen if someone found out about your short comings? Maybe they could: expose you, take your business, tell your boss or even make fun of you. Or maybe they could help you overcome those short comings? Many get a frightened felling by the prospect of someone finding out we don’t know something, or that we are not the best at a particular area. That’s normal. The thing that makes someone get...

075 The One that’s All About Corrosion Coupons Episode 75: Show Notes If you are an industrial water treater, most likely you have seen a corrosion coupon at some point. However, if you haven't, today’s episode will teach you all about them. I remember a time when I placed an ad for my corrosion coupon lab in an industry magazine.

062 The One with the Pulsafeeder Guy
Have you ever thought about what our water treatment control equipment allows us to do? Yes, it feeds our products and bleeds the system, but what it really does is allow us to go home! If we did not have something monitoring our program 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, we would have very different job. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to sleep in a mechanical room! It is for this reason that I want the Scaling UP! Nation! to focus on understanding what they are using to control...

060 The One About Public Speaking

The great Google says it is one of the top fears that most of us share. And who can argue with Google? I remember the first time I gave a water treatment speech in front of some of my father’s clients. It was not very good. In fact, it was downright bad. However, that was my first, not my last. To date I have spoken...

058 The One with the Sales Energizer Episode 58: Show Notes It doesn't matter what your job title is, you are a sales person. Now granted, some are better that it than others, but we are all in sales no matter what we do. I like to look at sales as something we do to help solve a problem for someone else. Many look at it as I need to make this person do this, so I can make some money. To those who say this, I say that if you motive is to help, the money will come, and you will have a lot...
