Today’s entrepreneur has been building an iconic solar business since before many of you were even born! Gary Gerber founded Sun Light & Power in 1976, and has built one of the most trusted brands in the California market. It was humbling and educational to finally sit down with Gary and chat about his 4 decades of experience.

I learned the value of leaning in longterm when you’ve got a good idea, and why selling the company to his employees after 40+ yrs was a sound business decision. Gary also told me the secret to his success.
