093 The One with Jay Farmerie, CWT Episode 93: Show Notes As you all have heard me speak about on the show, I am endeavoring to become a better water treater each and every day.  This includes learning what I don’t know I don’t know.  This can be a very difficult task when you embark on this journey by yourself.  That is way I have engaged others to help me.   I believe that everyone should have a mentor to help them with the above-mentioned task.  Fortunately for me I have several.  About 20 years ago I asked Jay Farmerie, CWT if he would mentor me.  Lucky for me, he said yes.  Because of our relationship, I have someone who is engaged in helping me find my blind spots to uncover what I don’t know I don’t know.    On today’s episode I interview Jay about his career and all things water treatment.  I hope you enjoy our conversation.  Key Points From This Episode:   Being a Mentor [0:07:30]  Starting GLA Water Consulting [0:20:21]   Bid Specifications [0:23:35]   Requirements to become a Certified Water Technologist [0:32:54]  Water Treatment Standards [0:35:57]  Water Doctors[0:41:12]  Minimums for Water Treatment [0:47:32]  Water Softener tests[0:50:13]   Magic Questions [0:52:49] And  a lot more!

092 The One About My TED Talk Experience Episode 92: Show Notes If you have listened to my end year shows, you know I am a goal setter.  I believe that if you challenge yourself to grow beyond your comfort level, you challenge yourself to grow, period.  I also believe that most people don’t challenge themselves to grow and by default they stay the same.  The brutal fact is if you are staying the same, others are going to pass you, so there is no staying the same, the same will actual move you backwards.  This year I decided I wanted to work on my public speaking skills.  Specifically, I wanted to do my first TED Talk.  For those of you that don’t know TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design.  Most of my speaking experience is with training.  I have never made up a narrative (story) and spoke on it before.  At the time of the release of this episode, I have not yet made it to the TED Stage.  In an effort to get there, I'd love for you to nominate me at:  If you want to see the actual recording of my talk go to:   I hope you enjoy this episode as I take you through the process of my preparation to do something I have never done before.  Key Points From This Episode:   Working with Tim Fulton [0:01:01] TED Talk and all about it [0:04:07] 7 Habits of Highly Effective People [0:05:16] Preparing for the TED Talk [0:08:06] Professional Speech Coach [0:39:44] My Small Business Matters Conference 2019 experience [0:42:13] And a lot more!

091 The One That's All About Filming Amines (Closed Loops and Cooling Towers) Episode 91: Show Notes Wow!  Three weeks of filming amines.  What else is left to talk about?  Closed Loops and Cooling Towers of course...  Marodi Cribari and I are back to finish up this series on filming amine technologies.  Adding from our previous two conversations, we talk about using filming amines in the application of cooling tower and closed loop systems.  This episode lets you in on valuable tips and information you need to know if you plan on using filming amines in a system that is not a steam boiler.   More about Marodi Cribari: Marodi Cribari is a biochemist from Denver, Colorado. She graduated in 2008 from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a degree in biology and chemistry. Early in her career she was a bench chemist developing fluid systems and colloidal particle dispersions. Now she works in water treatment focusing on technical education an product application. Fun Fact about Marodi:  She is a professional ballroom dancer!

090 The One That's All About Filming Amines (Boilers) Episode 90: Show Notes If you haven't listened to last week's episode, Episode 89, The One That's All About Filming Amines (General) I think you should start with that one first.  That is the episode where we talk about general knowledge of the filming amine products.    In today’s episode we get down to application in boilers. Boilers are where filming amines got their start (at least in the water treatment arena.) And this is where I personally have most of my experience. A manufacturer sought me out about six years ago and asked me to evaluate how a particular blend a filming amines worked in a steam boiler. It was new technology at the time, and we all learned together. You will hear about this experience in today’s episode. You will also learn amount many of the things I learned as a part of that and applying these products since that time. But it’s not just me, Marodi is back too!  Join Marodi Cribari and I as we talk about all things filming amine when it comes to steam boilers.  Key Points From This Episode:   Using Filming Amines [0:00:40] Filming Amines on Boilers [0:01:35] Film Forming Products [0:04:47] Scale or Corrosion [0:08:47] System Inventory [0:08:56] Key Performance Indicator [0:09:28] Calcium Scale Build-Up [0:10:57] Specific Limits [0:12:38] Feeding the Product [0:16:23] Water Meter [0:21:42] Other tests [0:29:09] Picking a method [0:35:37] New to Filming Amines?

089 The One That's All About Filming Amines (General) Episode 89: Show Notes This one is straight from the Scaling UP! H2O mailbag! I have received dozens of questions about filming amines after Episode 80, Filming Amines. In that episode, I shared with the Scaling UP! Nation! the paper I presented at the 2018 Association of Water Technologies Convention and Expo. In fact, after I presented this paper, several people came up to me with question about filming amines. So here is what I think is going on: We water treaters are used to doing our craft in a particular way (the way we are used to.) When we change what we are used to (say using filming amines) some of us get nervous. Scaling UP! H2O to the rescue... Today's episode was meant to be a one-part episode with WST’s Marodi Cribari. However, there was so much information to cover we decided to cover filming amines for the next 3 weeks! Marodi has a great way of explaining us through many of the questions water treaters have. Although she works for WST, she answers our questions in a way that can apply to any supplier that you use. This week we will be talking about filming amines in general. You will learn how they started and how they came to be used in our water systems. Next week we tackle boilers and the third and final week, we talk about closed loops and cooling towers. I promise that after these episodes you will be well prepared to start your journey into learning more about filming amine technologies. Happy Learning!

085 The One with the Business Operating System Episode 85: Show Notes OK Scaling UP! Nation! You know that I love business. And I love helping people in business even more. If there is a common denominator with almost every business I help, it is that they are trained to be water treaters, but not to be business owners or managers. Here I go again, more on EOS, The Entrepreneural Operating System. EOS has helped me and my company more than any other system or book. Today, we cannot imagine working without it. I also use EOS as a tool to help other companies I work with. And... They love it as much as I do. Join me as I interview Mike Paton of EOS Worldwide. We talk about how to solve most of the problems we all have in business. So, if you own a business or work for a business, get ready to learn about one of the best tools for any business. FREE TOOL: EOS Delegate and Elevate More about Mike Paton: Mike Paton has been learning from entrepreneurs for most of his life.
