115 The One With Marketing Expert Jeff Henderson Episode 115: Show Notes Working in our day to day can be consuming, so consuming we sometimes forget how to market ourselves.  When we are not the ones communicating our story, we can't control the message.  Or even worse, we forget why we are doing what we are doing. That's where today's guest is going to help us.     Today's guest is Jeff Henderson, one of the best marketing people around. Jeff has an impressive resume. It includes working for The Atlanta Braves, Chick-Fil-A, and North Point Ministries. I'm going to guess what you are thinking; one of these things does not look like the others. Jeff went from selling chicken sandwiches to be the lead pastor at a church.  Jeff brilliantly intertwines how secrets of the non-profit world can help the for-profit world. Just imagine what if your team loved their job so much that they were willing to do it for free. That is what the non-profit world experiences every day. Wouldn't it be great to learn from that perspective?   Join me as I interview Jeff about his new book, Know What You're FOR. You are sure to get some great information that you can put to use, today.

111 The One with Eric Russo, CWT Episode 111: Show Notes I am sure I have shared with the Nation! before that I love hearing from people who listen to the Scaling UP! H2O podcast. At last year's AWT Convention and Expo, I met Eric Russo. Eric told me that he absolutely loved the Scaling UP! H2O podcast. He went on to say it was the perfect format for a water treater because we drive so much. What else are you going to do during “windshield” time? Eric graciously shared with me some ideas he had about guests and topics. We also started to get to know each other during that encounter. So, I invited him to come on Scaling UP! H2O. You will soon learn why I am so impressed with Eric. Join me as I interview, Eric Russo, CWT. More about Eric Russo: Eric Russo is the New England Area Manager for Suez.

110 Pinks and Blues: Boiler Surging Episode 110: Show Notes Pinks and Blues: Questions From the Nation!, Boiler Surging  Nation! Once again, we have a show because one of the members of The Scaling UP! Nation! gave us a topic to talk about.  Adam Sites, CWT sent us a voicemail about boiler surging.  His frustration was that the water treater always gets blamed.  And he’s right, we do.     When in doubt, blame the water treater is a phrase that rings true to most of us.  However, as much fun as it is to joke about this.  I do think we share in the problem of our customers not understanding what it is that we do.  As a group, water treaters don’t explain what it is that they do.  That leaves our talents to be explained as mystic voodoo and that leads to customers making bad choices when we are not onsite.  Join me as I try to answer Adam’s inquiry to the best of my ability.  There is no substitution for being there.  Since I am not there, I share with you some of my experiences that I have had in dealing with this issue.  Do you want to be featured on Scaling UP!

109 The One with Super Villain Royalty, Brian Fisk Episode 109: Show Notes Nation! You have heard me speak on this show previously about going to trade association functions to expand your knowledge level. Going to these events is also a great way to expand your network.   I love meeting new water treaters. By this, I mean new to the industry water treaters and new to me water treaters. We, as water treaters, all have a story in us, and I love to hear it!    Taking my advice, I went to the ASHRAE trade show this past January. It was huge! You can hear all about it on episode 73. When you listen to this episode, you hear me interview people I already know and people I just met. Truthfully, I didn’t expect to find some of the people I already knew at that trade show. People like Gary Garcia and Colin Frayne of episodes 101 and 102.  I think this goes to show when you do try to expand your network, you will surprisingly find people you know in places you don’t expect.   One of the new people I met was Brian Fisk. Brian struck me as an enthusiastic water treater. And... He is a fan of Scaling UP! H2O. How could I not immediately like him? As we spoke at the ASHRAE show, it was clear we had a lot in common and he had some great stuff to share. Why not have him share it on the world's favorite industrial water treatment podcast?   Please enjoy my interview with Brian Fisk.  Key Points From This Episode: Water Conferences [0:03:42] Brian’s Transition [0:10:54] How Valuable Water Treater Is?

  107 Day 4 Of Industrial Water Week (Wastewater) Episode 107 (Day 4): Show Notes Industrial Water Week, Day 4: Wastewater   It’s a dirty job, but someone must do it. That someone is us, the Industrial Water Treater.   Today we are celebrating Wastewater Thursday. Wastewater is all about taking something out of our discharge water that came from our process. Most municipal plants require that the water they receive has a minimum water quality so that it will not harm their biological population. It’s all about the “bugs.”   A few months back we did 2 shows devoted to wastewater with our guest, Kevin Kope- episodes 78 and 79. Many water treaters have told me what a helpful resource these shows are. Feel free to incorporate re-listening to them during your celebration today.   In the meantime, we are back at the AWT convention here from Scaling UP! Nation Members.  Key Points From This Episode:  WasteWater [0:00:30]  Metals Precipitation [0:03:30]  Supplier Of The Year [0:06:54]  The Young Professional Council [0:08:24]  Common Things In The Convention [0:11:09]  Tips From Mark Lewis [0:14:47]  Offers in Peabody Engineering [0:19:33] Free Enterprise Server Application [0:21:18] QCPR Device [0:23:25]  And A Lot More!  Tweetables: "Just because you get a number, it's gotta be the number that you can believe in and accept.

107 Day 3 Of Industrial Water Week (Cooling) Episode 107 (Day 3): Show Notes Happy Industrial Water Week everyone! Today, Day 3, of our weeklong holiday is all about Cooling. Yesterday was about boilers. Since we put heat (BTU’s) into something, today we have to cool it down. We are taking BTU’s out of something. In most processes, heat is a byproduct that slows the process down. The more widgets a machine makes, the hotter that machine gets. The hotter the machine gets, the fewer widgets that machine can make. And that’s where we come in.   Getting heat out of our process and sending it to a place we don’t care about it is key to our job. The less heat we have, the more widgets we can make. That means the widget factory can be more profitable. Our job as an industrial water treater is to make that process as efficient as it possibly can be. After all, the heat transfer medium they are using is the lifeblood of the whole operation.   As we celebrate Cooling Wednesday, we are back at the AWT conference.

Episode 107 (Day 2): Show Notes Happy Industrial Water Week Scaling UP! Nation!     We are celebrating Day 2 of Industrial Water Week. Day 2 is all about boilers. One of the ways I like to think about our job is that we are heat transfer, efficiency managers. That means we take heat from one place and transfer it to another as cost-effectively as possible. When we talk about boilers, we are putting heat into the system, so that heat can do some work. This work might be to power something, or it could just be to heat something. Either way, the steam boiler is the “workhorse” of our modern-day world.   On this special holiday episode, we are back at the Association of Water Technologies Annual Convention.  Where we talk a bit about steam boilers and chat with friends of our show.   Happy Day 2 of Industrial Water Week.  Key Points From This Episode:  All About Boilers [0:00:43]   Tips from Larry Pannell [0:03:39]  Questions for Laura Sanders [0:07:54] The Upcoming AWT President [0:09:43]  Appreciating Thomas Branvold [0:12:26]  Upgrading with Tom Tinney [0:14:40]  Learnings at The Convention [0:18:18] The Young Professionals [0:21:01]  Cool Stuff In 2019 [0:22:45]  Industrial Week 2020 Schedule [0:24:14]  Understanding H2trOnics [0:24:45] pH Meter [0:26:00] Interview with Scott Olson [0:28:45]   And a lot more!  Tweetables: "This (AWT) is one of the few organizations where vendors have an opportunity to participate in committees and contribute something meaningful. In return the water treatment industry benefits as a whole. - @TomTinney  @traceblackmore #scalinguph2o #scalingup #scalinguppodcast #scalingupnation #Pretreatment #IndustrialWaterWeek #boilertuesday #AWT #CWT #ScalingUPto100 "The number one tip for water treaters: If it wasn't written, it wasn't done." - @JayFarmerie  @traceblackmore #scalinguph2o #scalingup #scalinguppodcast #scalingupnation #Pretreatment #IndustrialWaterWeek #boilertuesday #AWT #CWT #ScalingUPto100  Links Mentioned on this episode: Larry Pannell on LinkedIn   Laura Sanders on LinkedIn Reid Hutchison on LinkedIn Adam Dumler on LinkedIn Matt Black on LinkedIn Chris Golden on LinkedIn Scott W.

107 Day 1 Of Industrial Water Week (Pretreatment) Episode 107: Show Notes Industrial Water Week, Day 1: Pretreatment   Happy Industrial Water Week Nation! We have an entire week that is devoted just for us, the Industrial Water Treater. Last year, a friend of the show, James McDonald launched this holiday to help us celebrate how awesome our job is. Industrial Water Week is always the first full week in October. Here is what we celebrate:   Pretreatment Monday   Boiler Tuesday   Cooling Wednesday   Wastewater Thursday   Careers Friday   There is just so much to do in our job, our holiday requires more than just one day to celebrate. We get a whole week!  Today we celebrate pretreatment. Pretreatment is anything that we do to improve water quality to make it more acceptable for a specific end use. That means filters, water softeners, dealkalizers, and the list goes on. Today, as we celebrate industrial water week, think of all the things we use in our pretreatment processes.   To help us celebrate this awesome holiday week, we took our recording gear to the Association of Water Technologies Annual Convention to take you right into the action. Please enjoy.  Key Points From This Episode:  Industrial Water Week Celebration [0:00:30]   Pretreatment Monday [0:01:35]   Who is Responsible For IWW Holiday? [0:05:06]   AWT Online Training Modules [0:07:22]   The Youngest CWT [0:10:45]   Advantage Controls [0:13:45]   Young Professional Happy Hours [0:18:08]   Random Interviews [0:24:04]  And a lot more!  Tweetables: "Get here however you can! Show up.

106 The One with the Agnostic Equipment Guy Episode 106: Show Notes Nation! I know your favorite thing in the water treatment industry is the equipment we use.  Well, maybe not...  But it is something that we must use to run our programs when we are not there.  Many of us are loyal to a particular brand and model of equipment.  There is nothing wrong with that as long as you know what your options are outside of your “comfort zone.”  I have found by working with other water treaters that many of us learn how one thing works, get comfortable with it and stop.  That is not ok.  We have to keep apprised of what equipment is out there to make our systems better.  Our guest today is Blaine Nagao of H2Tronics.  Blaine is a longtime friend and colleague of mine.  We met through the Association of Water Technologies.  Specifically, when he would do the equipment training portion at technical training.  I still remember things I learned from him in the class.  Blaine agreed to come on the show and talk with us about a few things we should consider when it comes to equipment.  Please get ready to enjoy my interview with Blaine Nagao.  Key Points From This Episode:  AWT Annual Convention & Expo [0:00:30]  Industrial Water Week [0:01:53]  Audible (Reading Tool) [0:03:31]  Water Treatment Equipment [0:04:38]  Equipment Baselines [0:10:02]  Additional Functions Of Controllers [0:13:05]  New Technology For Pumps [0:15:44]  3 Ways To Verify Pumps [0:18:03]  Familiarizing The Equipment [0:18:32]  Installations [0:19:41]  How To Improve Installations? [0:20:54]  Choosing A Brand You Want To Use [0:28:44]  Time Saving Tips [0:32:06]  What H2TrOnics Does? [0:44:18]  And a lot more!  Tweetables: “Do as much as you can ahead of time!” @BlaineNagao @traceblackmore #scalinguph2o #scalingup #scalinguppodcast #scalingupnation #CoolingTowerSystems #WaterTreatmentEquiptments #ScalingUPto100  “Treat every installation like it’s a reflection of yourself and your company.” @BlaineNagao @traceblackmore #scalinguph2o #scalingup #scalinguppodcast #scalingupnation #CoolingTowerSystems #WaterTreatmentEquiptments #ScalingUPto100  “Learn about the equipment that is running your programs.”  @traceblackmore   @BlaineNagao scalinguph2o #scalingup #scalinguppodcast #scalingupnation #CoolingTowerSystems #WaterTreatmentEquiptments #ScalingUPto100  What are 5-10 things that you need to know how to troubleshoot for your equipment? @traceblackmore @BlaineNagao  #scalinguph2o #scalingup #scalinguppodcast #scalingupnation #CoolingTowerSystems #WaterTreatmentEquiptments #ScalingUPto100  “When you elevate your water treatment program, you are showing customers that you are staying on top of all of their water treatment needs.

104 The One on Generational Diversity Episode 104: Show Notes Never before have we had 4 generations working together in the same workplace.  So, it just stands to reason that we would have issues in dealing with multiple generations working together (in that same workplace) that we have never had to deal with before.    Today’s guest is Jeff Butler.  Jeff is an expert when it comes to understanding the generations.  He uses his expertise to help the Scaling UP! Nation understand what the generations are and how we can work better together.  He especially goes into understanding Millennials better from their mindset.  Join me as I find out more about understanding the different generations.  Key Points From This Episode: Different Generations [0:07:04] Generation X [0:09:29] Multi-Generation Common Issues [0:15:02] Outdated [0:19:03] EOS (Entrepreneur Operating System) [0:26:06] Motivate the Millennial [0:29:02] Power of Social Media [0:34:27] And a lot more!

103 The One About What a Water Treater Fears Episode 103: Show Notes When my assistant, Carla and I were setting up our production calendar a few months ago, we noticed that a release date was going to fall on Friday the 13th.  That made me think of Jason Voorhees.  But it also made me think about doing a show about what water treaters fear.  A fear Factor episode, if you will...  I requested that the Scaling UP! Nation! let me know what they feared as water treaters.  The list of items you came back with wasn't inclusive of ghost and goblins or even Jason Voorhees, but real things that happen to us every day.  Today's episode is my reveal of that list.  But I don’t stop there.  I let you know how to deal with that fear.  Please enjoy the scariest water treatment show ever.  Happy Friday the 13th!

101 The One with Colin Frayne, CWT  Episode 101: Show Notes Nation!  you have heard him before on Scaling UP! H2O.  I’ve interviewed him at AWT events, IFMA events and ASHRAE Events.  But I have never interviewed him on a regular episode of our podcast.  I’m talking about none other than Colin Frayne, CWT.  Colin has been involved in my water treatment training since 2002 when I first saw him at an Association of Water Technologies Technical Training Seminar.  Colin had just come out with his water treatment books around that time.  He graciously signed them for me, although I left those books behind when I started my own company.  Since that time, I have replaced the books and continued to utilize Colin as a resource.    Join me as I interview Colin Frayne, CWT Key Points From This Episode: Understanding Water Treatment [0:3:23] Getting started and involved [0:05:58] Resources and more [0:18:45] Companies/Suppliers Objectives [0:20:37] Staying involved with AWT [0:23:19] Exchange Forum [0:31:44] Recognition of Water Technologists [0:34:48] Getting involved in Lawsuits [0:37:28] And a lot more!

100 The 100th One Episode 100: Show Notes Can you believe it, I can't!  This is Scaling UP! H2O’s 100th episode!  If you are a listener of the show, you have heard my voice 100 times.  Unbelievable...  Hosting this podcast has become a passion of mine.  Several years ago, I didn’t even know what a podcast was, now I'm celebrating 100 episodes of having a podcast.  During the past 100 episodes, I have learned a great deal about several things. On this episode we are going to celebrate not only what was done over the last 100 episodes, but what we learned, like these:  The importance of having community in our industry? a.) I don’t think I can take credit for it, but I have seen a shift in how water treaters reach out to fellow water treaters.  Before the show, I didn't think crossing company lines was a common practice.  But since the show started, I have had several individuals let me know that they have befriended other water treaters and they have both benefited from the new relationship. The podcast gave creation to The Scaling UP! Nation!  The Scaling UP! Nation! has become the community for industrial water treaters, and I think that is amazing.  I am humbled to be the tribe leader of our Nation! Other people think there is a need for the podcast:  a.) When I started on 4/4/2017, I would have been happy if my company’s team would have listened to the show.  To date we are over 10,000 listeners in over 64 countries and growing every day.  If this show didn't fill a need, we wouldn’t have numbers like that.  GO Scaling UP! Nation!  It’s all about the guests:  a.) This podcast was the first experience I had interviewing someone, outside of a job opportunity.  I learned how others in the podcast community conducted interviews and morphed it to my own style.  Interviewing was something I used to fear, now I find it very enjoyable.  I have learned so much.  Not just how to interview, but on a multitude of topics like how to be a better listener.  Additionally, our guests have been fantastic, not only are they knowledgeable, that are at the top in their field.  Thank you to all of our guests!  The list goes on but suffice it to say, I have experienced so many wonderful things in the past 100 episodes.  Thank you for being a listener of Scaling UP! H2O.  I truly wouldn’t have been able to get to 100 without you!  Please enjoy this 100th episode.  I know I enjoyed bringing it to you and look forward to the next 100!  Key Points From This Episode: Our humble beginning [0:02:05] Significance of 4-4-2017 [0:04:08] Trace's Favorite Story [0:05:50] Mark Lewis [0:07:25] Why Scaling UP!
