044 The One with The Chick Fil A Guy 

Episode 44: Show Notes   

If you’ve listened to the show for any length of time, you know I love business!  Due my love of business, I study businesses in how they conduct regular transactions and issues. This can sometimes get on my wife’s nerves since I’m always turning every customer service experience into a learning opportunity, just ask her…  In my observations, I have noticed that successful businesses seem to rally around a core set of values that you can see throughout their entire company. I’ve also noticed the opposite is true when companies lack a set of values that are followed by all. Just think back to when you had an issue with something at a place of business, it’s impossible not to see how core values are applied if you look for it. Observing this is one of my favorite things to do.  Continue Reading

Episode 43: Show Notes  

Did you know we all have something in common?  Well, I’m willing to bet that we have many things in common but the one I want to focus in on is we all start something new as someone new to starting that something. I know that is not very profound, but it’s true. In my career I have been concerned about how someone would view my presentation or recommendation because I was: too new, too young, too…  Continue Reading

038 The One That Shows Us How to Run Our Business w/ Mark Winters

 Episode 38: Show Notes.

Being a water treater, that’s easy… Well, maybe not.  However, I have found it easier than running my own business.  As with everything, you don’t know what you don’t know.  So, when I learn something, that I didn’t know, and it works, I want to share it with you.

 About 3 years ago, we started using a program at my company called EOS, The Entrepreneur Operating System.  This system was introduced in a book called Traction by Gino Wickman.  Gino explains that EOS is like an operating system you would use for you computer, like Windows.  Your company is the program that will run on that operating system, like Word (yes, I am a PC guy.)  The EOS system has five books within the series.  On today’s show, we have the author of the second book in the series “Rocket Fuel,” Mark Winters.  Mark is one of the best facilitators of the EOS system out there!  He explains EOS and how different people in our company have different talents.  By properly utilizing these talents we can energize our company with “Rocket Fuel” to get to the next level and beyond.  Please join me for my interview with Mark Winters.

037 The One That’s All About White Rust.

 Episode 37: Show Notes.

Today on the show, we welcome Chris Nagle. Chris has a background in water treatment and today works at Evapco, one of the largest cooling tower manufacturers in the world. Have you ever heard the term white rust? It is a problem that many water treaters face and is the topic of this episode today. In a nutshell, white rust is the galvanizing coming off of a cooling tower. Galvanizing is a coating of zinc over the steal surface, which is done so that the zinc corrodes instead of the steel below it. White rust is the premature corroding of that zinc and this is a serious problem, one that it often blamed on the water treater.

Evapco have been doing an amazing job at teaming up to gather and share information on white rust and how we can help solve this issue in new ways, together. Chris has a unique perspective and a wealth of insight on the topic of white rust and today, he explains the process of galvanizing and passivation and the challenges white rust has placed on the industry today. Chris shares some of the fascinating things Evapco are doing to help solve this issue and provides some great advice for water treaters on how to prevent and manage white rust.
