Need a cool coffee table book for your next party?! Go to SolarCity and get the free consultation on your house! Finally a feasible way. Leasing solar panels. We heard all about it from Christian Toebe, of SolarCity.

They have some serious graphics to show you how the sun works!  In all seriousness, Christian not only had a well-prepared presentation but we made some compelling points about how you can NOW afford Solar energy on your home. In his presentation, Christian Toebe explained the product, the financial savings of the leasing model, and how the sun works in Westchester County, NY.  Christian broke it down into the ways in which the SolarCity System earns money to reduce your energy bills, how it is applied to your roof, and how the owners of the business are creators of other very successful business models. Here were some of the slides he used to explain important points:

Environmental Benefits –Yeah Yeah, but what really is going to get us to do it…..

You can always take something away from Bob Russo’s speaking engagements.

Mr. Russo spoke about getting to know your fellow businesses.

I love Bob. bob-russo-exerciseHe always uses a prop.   His prop today was a sheet that normally a marketing agency would offer:  Most important details of to speak knowledgeable about a fellow business when referring them. This is INVALUABLE to selling your colleague’s business.  Could you fill in these blanks about the businesses you refer?:

  • Their Goals of the Business Short range and Long Range
  • Their Revenue Goals
  • Their Average Deal cost
  • Their interest or best offers
  • Their Skill setbob-russo-exercise2

Thank you, Bob, for speaking to us this day.  And I encourage everyone to use the information he has given us.  It comes from a proven source.

…And I recommend that you go hear Bob speak if you get the chance.  He is engaging and interesting.  And again, he will leave you with an insightful way of getting more out of your business and your networking times (cause our time is valuable).
