Welcome to Episode 96 of SunCast!

Today we're rounding out our discussion with Mr. Kyle Cherrick, Head of Business Development for PickMySolar.  If you missed last week's episode, then you might consider going back to catch it next, as it's actually Part 1 of this interview, and we go over a lot of the foundations and early pivots in Kyle's career that led to his Startup career including how he eventually merged his company with the PickMySolar team. 

We are going to continue to unpack Kyle's story, this time turning the focus more squarely on his current project, PickMySolar. Kyle managed to launch and fund his previous venture, Solar Merchant, while full-time employed AND getting his MBA. We go into his mindset and counselors at the time, as well as all the regular insights you're used to gleaning from entrepreneurs on SunCast.
