Ex Cell Phone Employee Finds Success in Solar Energy
Today we’d like to introduce you to Eric Garcia.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
It’s been a long journey. After being fired from 3 jobs in a row, I was desperate for any type of job that would put food on the table. I stumbled across the opportunity of solar panels and went to work. What I enjoy about solar is the fact that I’m helping families save money. I’m also helping create a greener planet. Facing Bankruptcy and losing my home I did everything I could to put food on the table while building my solar business. I mowed lawns, washed cars, delivered food. Anything to ensure my family was taken care of. A few months later, I started seeing success and helping others do the same. 4 years later and now I’m one of the Top Solar consultants in the Nation. Helping others and creating a Legacy for my family is what drives me to continue my journey.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Many challenges and obstacles have come my way during my journey. One of the biggest challenges was letting go of bad energy in my life. This meant that I had to lose some relationships in order to focus on me and my journey. My family didn’t deserve me to entertain others that didn’t have a mindset like myself. I was on a focused and disciplined journey. Staying true to my personal goals and serving others has helped me continue to strive to be the best and always connect with other like minded individuals who have a good heart and hustle daily.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
In my line of work, education and ethics are important to my customer and myself. Unfortunately there are some bad apples out there that intentionally or unintentionally provide false information to get a sale.
I focus on the needs of my customers and provide solutions to problems. One of the biggest problems facing America today is inflation. By offering solar panels, I’m helping homeowners lock in their energy pricing and not being effected by the rising utility rates.
I am a certified solar consultant and I believe people choose to do business with me because I know the facts and I treat people right.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
My best advice to those who are seeking success is to take a moment to dig deep within yourself and clearly define what you want out of your personal and business life. Second, create a plan on how to reach your goals. Lastly, go into immediate action and don’t stop until you have completed your goals. I truly believe you will find that the journey to get to where you wanted is the true success you were looking for. Trust the process and embrace the journey.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success to me means Freedom. Freedom to live your life by design.
What’s next for you?
In my next chapter, I’d like to help others by sharing what I’ve learned so others may benefit for them and their families. Writing a book, creating valuable content via social media and developing a training platform would help me serve others on a larger scale.
Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more?
