He detailed his experience rising from being a service technician for a larger water company, then moving into sales. Later he decided to launch his own water company. Easton explained the challenges of owning and operating a small business. 
"You gotta be that guy doing the work. You also gotta be the guy keeping the tax man happy and you gotta be the guy to who influences people to do business with you," Easton said.
