When Jayson Waller became an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award winner in 2019, he was encouraged to write a book or start a podcast. Those were good ideas, given his inspirational story of growing up in a trailer park, never attending college, and selling his home to save his company, POWERHOME SOLAR, from growing pains and cash flow problems.
Today, Waller has accomplished both. With a top-3 ranking among Apple entrepreneurship podcasts, True Underdog is one of the fastest-growing podcasts in the nation. This fall, he will release his first book, “Own Your Power,” which shares stories about the experiences that have shaped his entrepreneurial success. Waller is leading a movement encouraging Americans to live a life powered by the sun.
POWERHOME SOLAR, one of the fastest-growing energy companies in the country, employs more than 2,000 people and has nearly 30,000 customers in more than 15 states.
