1. Start a solar energy business ($7.2M/year)

David Gomez from California, USA started Clean Energy Solutions over 7 years ago, a solar energy business.

  • Revenue: $600,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 20
  • Location: California, USA

As far back as I can remember I’ve always wanted to have my own business. I didn’t go to college (besides a few junior college classes). Instead, I started working in sales, first selling car insurance for a few years, and then making the jump into mortgage loans. After a few years of gaining experience, I opened up my own mortgage company and rode the wave of the mid-2000’s real estate boom. It was an incredibly lucrative time and it seemed like it would go on forever. However, by the end of the decade, the good times were over and the recession hit. Although I hung in there and we did extremely well for several years in a down economy, I still ended up having to shut down my company. During this time I experienced some of the most challenging times of my life and career.

After rolling with the punches, I started looking for the next business opportunity to get involved with. A friend of mine had been telling me for several years about solar power and how renewable energy was the future. After doing some research, I realized what a great opportunity it was.

  • There’s an unlimited amount of solar energy.
  • Solar is clean energy compared to fossil fuels that damage the environment.
  • Solar energy is a cheaper source of energy than fossil fuels, in the majority of markets.
  • Power purchase agreement (PPA) allows a homeowner to get a solar system without having to actually purchase the system. There is not a purchase loan or lien required on a client’s home.

2. Start a parking lot business ($1.2M/year)

Patrick Murray from San Francisco, California, USA started On Air Parking about 5 years ago, a parking lot business.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: San Francisco, California, USA

So I’ve always been “entrepreneurial” like I’m sure a lot of you.

In high school my buddy and I would create business plans after school, in college I started to take action and just get going on any idea I had. After school I gave myself five months, when student loan payments started, to make at least enough money to live off of and pay my minimum student loan payments. That was in 2010. The adventures I went on to make this minimum amount of money were priceless and I could fill up Pat’s whole site going over the details, but let’s look at years 2010-2013 as me “just making enough”.

If you have an idea, all you need to do is create a Typeform with Stripe integration and you can easily validate it. It’s truly that simple. Any other reason to delay testing an idea out is a fear-based excuse.

And for some real world inspiration, give Mandana Salehi's story on creating Ziba Hub a read:

My name is Mandana Salehi-Stewart. I live in Portland, Oregon where I built a career as a sales leader in local software startups for more than 10-years before venturing off on my own. My company is called ZibaHub, a marketplace where beauty and wellness professionals can be discovered by potential employers and clients based on their skills and social values.

With the changes happening over the past year about both Covid and social awakening, we decided to help connect the dots between consumers seeking beauty services who are concerned about safety protocols and social values and service providers who need new business to weather the storm. This is why we’ve evolved from a marketplace where salons discovered salon pros to an all-encompassing marketplace where both salons AND consumers can discover and connect with their ideal providers.
