Solar Advisor’s Unique Personal Statement

My dad went from building bikes at a bike shop to now being the VP of one of the largest freight shipping companies. My mom won award after award at her company for being the top producer, most efficient, and for her leadership skills. I also watched my brother pursue his dream and execute his goals faster than most. I make sure to show my folks every day that I could be productive; therefore, it pushes me ALWAYS to progress. I have run into some significant obstacles... I lost multiple family members that were extremely close, and I moved five times. After all of this, I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. I have been knocked down, at the top, and even clueless. Thanks to many people, including Dave Benegel (which I consider a huge mentor of mine), I have been able to flourish and utilize my failures as fuel. I want to be extraordinarily successful and ahead as early as possible in life to show others, it's possible. This quote has pushed me to continue this path

Solar Advisor’s Renewable Energy Experience

I started installing commercial solar in 2015. I traveled the US installing solar at Walmart chains, and finalized that part of my career with installing Intel in Folsom. I made my way up to Crew lead and then realized that's not what I wanted to do forever. Once I joined sales, I never looked back. I became the number one rep in no time. Then soon to be the number one sales manager. Eventually, I ran a region of sales reps. At one point in my career, I was the CEO of my own successful Solar company.
