Happy August Scaling UP! Nation!  

In honor of the Annual Legionella Conference at the end of every August, The Scaling UP! Nation! declared August: Legionella Awareness Month. In line with most conferences currently, The Legionella Conference is now in January 2021. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn more about this bacterium. So please help me raise the bar on Legionella Awareness during August. 

In today’s episode, we are goin...

Today’s episode is my favorite format that we do. It is where you ask questions, and I answer them. As a water treatment professional, we should always have more questions than answers. Generating new questions means that we are thinking about everything we are doing, and we are trying to do what we do better. If you are not asking questions (even to yourself), you are not stretching your level of understanding. When you stretch yo...

I know what you are thinking, I am crazy to have all these processes. Well, I think you are insane not to have all these processes. A process allows a standard of quality no matter who is performing the task.  In episode 131, I spoke with Alicia Butler Pierre, all about processes. One of the components of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) is processes. EOS refers to it as “the way.” And companies following EOS don’t have a...

Today’s episode might feel a little different than usual. However, we could all use a positive mental attitude boost during these challenging times. I know you’ve heard me talk about my favorite book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, before on this show. Habit 1 is about being proactive. It’s a choice not to react when something happens to you. Instead, we should pause and choose our response to what we should do. I wanted to s...

It is not uncommon for people to tell me they are impressed with the amount of work I can get done. This attribute has helped me get noticed over the years. As my years increased, so have my tasks. Like most of us, I had more to do, so I did more. Usually, this time came at the expense of taking personal time and time away from family activities. Eventually, when there was even less bandwidth, things were done subpar, or items were...

    Who would think that all of our meetings in the 2nd quarter of 2020 would be over video conference? Not me. I would have bought a hefty amount a Zoom stock if I did. Which, by the way, was trading for about $70 back in February and will now cost you $210. Hindsight, right! For those of us that didn’t make it rich buying Zoom stock, you probably use Zoom’s product or something like it. Have you ever wondered what the best way to ha...

    It is the end of the 2nd quarter! Who knew what 2020 was going to bring? Nobody thought it was going to be a pandemic. As we all learn what the “new normal” is for our day to day routines that used to be so typical, we still have to deal with accounts that were not the best before the pandemic. They certainly didn’t get any better during the pandemic!

    For the last two months, our world has been very different. Who would have thought we would have stay at home orders? I know I didn't! But it did. As we reopen, everybody wants to know what they can do to get back to work.    

    As a water treater, we have a different perspective on what it takes to get a building or facility back up and running. Most owners are thinking about all the things they can see whereas the water treater...

    138 The One That’s All About Cooling Towers - Part 2

    Last week we heard from Evapco’s Brett Alexander.  Brett explained the inner workings of all types of cooling towers and how we can tell the differences between them.  We also discussed the different metallurgies that these devices are made of.  If you didn’t get a chance to listen to last week's episode, please do so.  It is a great baseline on cooling tower knowledge.

    Every day for the past 20+ years I think I have seen a cooling tower either in person, a picture or just thought about one.  As an industrial water treater, cooling towers are part of our day to day lives.  I do remember a time before that when I did not know what a cooling tower was and having to learn about how it worked.  But I must admit, later, I really didn’t give them too much thought. 

    Later in my career, I have had th...

    Episode 136: The One About The Mastermind Group

    Last January, I started a group called The Rising Tide Mastermind. You probably have noticed that I've mentioned it quite a few times on the podcast. The fact of the matter is, I want to get the word out about this group. I can say that it has been transformational for its members. And me too!  

    Many of you in the Scaling UP! Nation! have asked questions about The Rising Tide Mas...

    Episode 135 - The One with Adam Lean  

    How do you know how well you are doing if you don’t measure it? 

    Ok, how about this...  How would you know who was winning if they dint keep score? 

    Now try this: How do you know how you are doing if you aren't keeping score?  

    And the better question is: how do you get better if you don’t know to get better? 

    I am talking about metrics.  Metrics is how we can keep score on everything we ...

    I am always looking for ways to find out what I don't know I don't know. The problem with that is you don't know what you don't know, you know...  

    For this reason, I try to put myself in situations to force what I don't know to become apparent to me. Some of the ways I do this is:  

  • Reading  
  • Going to events  
  • Listening to podcasts  
  • Participating in mastermind groups (like The Rising Tide Mastermind)  
  • Workin...

    Nation!, one of my favorite things to do on this podcast is to talk to other water treaters. As a fellow water treater, I can relate to the trials and tribulations others in our industry face. I am continuously amazed at how water treaters will selflessly help other water treaters with issues. We are a part of such a great community! I have developed some great relationships because I ask a fellow water treater a question on how to...
