My name is Phil Zito and I help organizations develop the best BAS technicians, designers, and programmers in the world!

If you’re like most of my readers, you’re looking for a way to take your building automation team to the next level. You realize that you work in an industry where you can truly make a difference and that the systems you design, install, and service can change people’s lives.

You want to be known as a professional, you want to be the person everyone turns to and trusts. Being a knowledgable BAS professional effects your life and the lives of those around you. You are able to help hospitals heal patients faster, you are able to help schools educate children, and help keep offices safe and healthy. You realize that building automation is so much more than inputs and outputs.

But there’s something keeping you from your full potential, isn’t there?

You want to learn, you want to gain knowledge and become the BAS professional that everyone relies on, but it feels like there’s just no time. You start early hoping into your car or truck and sit in traffic, sometimes for hours at a time. You pour out your talent, working harder than everyone else, making sure that the customers happy.

Then you get home and summon what little bit of energy you have left to take care of your home and family.

By the time you get to sit down and work on developing your skills you feel tied, the words blur and you struggle to keep your mind focused. This pattern repeats itself day after day. Every day you wake up energized with the best of intentions but yet the day saps away at you…

I’ve been there

I know what it feels like to come home, completely zapped after spending all day working on a 140-degree roof. You feel drained, you know you need to do something to get ahead but you just can’t summon the energy. For years, I struggled through this. I pushed through but my success came at the expense of my health and my family.

But then something changed, I realized that there were only a few things that you need to learn in order to have a successful career in building automation. Once I learned this my career exploded, I was able to rapidly advance in my career and still find time to pursue my family and passions.

Since then I’ve shared this knowledge with other building automation professionals. I’ve published Building Automation Systems A to Z and I’ve created several online training programs built for those of you who are struggling with the exact same problems.

The best thing is that by advancing in my BAS career I’ve freed up more time to spend with my wife and three young kids.

I know people tell you that if you want to advance in your BAS career you have to give up the things you love or slave away working 60+ hours a week.

I’m here to tell you that’s simply not true. I’ve discovered a way to win in your BAS career without sacrificing the things you love most.
