Pioneering Green Energy Solutions: From Painting to Power

At the young age of 19, Jeremiah dived head-first into entrepreneurship by managing a painting franchise. Despite the exhausting days filled with challenges beyond the physical labor he was accustomed to, the grind of running a business invigorated him. With a hefty summer profit, second thoughts about continuing melted away as the lure of business ownership proved irresistible.

Embracing the Entrepreneurial Essence

With no entrepreneurial role models in his family, Jeremiah stands as a testament to the dynamic nature of the entrepreneurial spirit. Whether ingrained or cultivated, his commitment to his enterprise rapidly outpaced the appeal of a steady paycheck. He represents those driven not by a predetermined path but by a profound belief in the visions they have for themselves.

Reflections on Resilience and Leadership

The journey of an entrepreneur isn’t without its hardships. For Jeremiah, it was the adversity that uncovered his strengths, particularly his high emotional intelligence and people skills. Fired from the comfort zones of structured corporate roles, he leapt into the unknown, facing bankruptcies and rebuilding efforts that sculpted his resilience and determination.

Becoming the Architect of Change

Energy Advantage was born from Jeremiah’s foresight to merge the worlds of roofing and solar energy. Spurred by environmental considerations and a longing to disrupt a cycle reliant on insurance claims, he envisioned an innovative business that could turn storm damage into an opportunity for energy conversion.

Delegating to Accelerate

Recognizing his role as a bottleneck to the company’s growth, Jeremiah masterfully shifted responsibilities, entrusting a partner with financial control and management. By stepping back, he allowed his strategic vision to flourish, steering the company toward an impressive trajectory of expanding both in scale and service offerings.

Charting the Course of the Future

Looking ahead, Energy Advantage is transitioning towards a sustainable future. The aim is to eliminate reliance on traditional roofing materials and insurance with resilient, eco-friendly solutions. This forward-thinking approach is a call to action within the industry, signaling a significant turn toward environmentally conscious practices.

Jeremiah’s Resonating Wisdom

Jeremiah’s journey leaves us with profound insights: Authentic success blooms from the heart of struggle, ownership of one’s decisions, and a relentless pursuit of growth. His message of perseverance and passion is a beckoning light for aspiring entrepreneurs, encouraging them to forge their paths with courage and unwavering focus on their ultimate vision.

Scott has an entrepreneurial spirit that’s been burning since his teenage years. Back then, he was mowing lawns, managing paper routes, and selling greeting cards door to door – always finding different ways to put some cash in his pocket! After graduating college, Scott had a successful career in sales and operations leadership, but his desire to be a business owner was never far from his heart. Seven years ago, he and his wife, Jenn, took the plunge and started their own business. Like many others, they spent all their time on the struggle bus – dealing with cash flow, payroll, and questioning whether their doors could even stay open. Ultimately, they persevered and learned some incredibly valuable lessons along the way.

Now, Scott is dedicated to helping others avoid the pitfalls he faced, fulfilling his purpose as a coach, and helping owners and teams achieve their dreams. When he’s not guiding businesses toward success, Scott can be found hitting the gym, on the golf course, or racking up miles on his Peloton.

As an EOS Implementer, Scott is passionate about helping business owners build a solid foundation and clear vision, empowering them to achieve growth, balance, and financial freedom – all while enjoying the ride.
