Many of you listening to this podcast probably have Solar Panels on your roofs – well, here’s the story of a company who was at the very beginning of the Solar industry, and who has ridden the roller-coaster of this industry over the past 10 years.
Jenny, co-founder and CEO, is very candid about the building of her business. Some of the key takeaways from our interview includes:
1.Making sure you understand the potential impacts of GOVERNMENT POLICY on your industry
2.The impacts on your business when you have EXCESSIVE GROWTH (from $250k in Year 1 to $7.3M in Year 2)
3.Founders can’t be the only ones driving Culture, you need to HIRE CULTURAL CHAMPIONS
4.DON'T IGNORE other people (either your network or a coach) who can provide you advice and support during your journey
It’s also interesting that there is a bit of a theme developing over the past few podcasts about making sure you have the right sales structure and people, otherwise you can’t be successful.
