2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

Solar Sell Marketing

Renewable Energy is the future and I wanted to take my skills in Online Marketing and help a booming industry.

Travel Academy

Travel is seen as an escape, as something outside of reality or something only digital nomads can do. I disagree and I want to harmonize these relations and show how travel is an incubator for those who don’t desire to be digital nomads, but who could still benefit from the road.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

Building the foundation. Having to take it step by step. Otherwise, the challenges have been fun.

Working with clients is frustrating because they will take you on a wild goose chase at times.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

The learning experience. Being an entrepreneur has shown me my angelic and demonic sides and given me another path of self-improvement.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

When you start talking about money and sales, the vision can be lost. I hit that point and nearly lost the reason why I do any of this. If I could change one thing it would be to remember that money is the means to the end, even if at times it is the needed end.

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Get a mentor and look at other materials they don’t teach. This is how I created hybrid models which I now teach.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yes. Automate it as much as you can or hire a virtual assistant.

8. How do you market your products?

Facebook Ads, LinkedIn Prospecting

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

Service. Online marketing, coaching and consulting.

Product: Book (via Kindle)

10. What is unique about your business?

The Niche Focus and the problems we solve explicitly.

No one else does it they way we do.

11. Sell me your product/service.

Solar Sell Marketing

I wrote this script:  Solar Marketing Strategy – Educational Solar Marketing

If we were able to bring you exclusive clients ready to buy for $50-100/ lead, who converted into a sale at least 50% of the time, fully automated at half the time it takes you to get the same amount of leads, would you pay us $750 a sale. (The average margin on solar installation is $3500).

The Travel Academy Coaching

If I showed you a way to tailor your life experiences from the road to employers and clients so you can increase your upward mobility, pay grade and receive a 10X return on investment (ROI) and life satisfaction, would you pay for my coaching?

12. How can people get in touch with you? What’s your website/Contact information?
