Starting and Growing an Energy Consulting Business

There is going to be a great need going forward for practitioners in energy efficiency and conservation. If you are passionate about saving energy, you can build a career out of providing energy efficiency services. By starting and growing an energy business, you can have a much larger impact on industry and the environment, than you can have on your own. I will share my experience starting and growing a business into a Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company, including what succeeded and what failed.
