Take the CWT Challenge:
If you are going to be in this industry, why not be the best in this industry? I challenge you to start on the journey to getting your CWT. You may not get it tomorrow and it may be 5 years from now. The point is you are on your way to getting it. You’ve started. And one thing is for sure, you will never finish anything you never start.
On last week’s episode I asked you to go to the Scaling UP! Nation’s Linked IN page and let everybody know the date you will take the exam. If you haven’t done that, I urge you to do so.

Making your job easier:
The mechanical is usually a place that has horrible light. Our tests results are based on interpretation of color changes that require good light. If you don’t have good light where you are, bring the good light with you.
We have solved this issue with a small, portable and cost effective rechargeable LED light. It is small enough to fit in your tests kit without taking up too much space and provides good quality light (6500K.) After mentioning this light on show number 24, I have received dozens of questions about it. To better answer these questions, I have created a video to show you what it looks like: https://scalinguph2o.com/lightvideo.
If you are interested in purchasing this light, I have set up an affiliate link to Amazon: https://scalinguph2o.com/light. The affiliate link adds no extra charge to you; however, Amazon does pay me a commission for the sale.
