The other afternoon I had a meeting with an energy retrofit services provider, plus by the end of the meeting I still wasn’t certain about what they did.
I am an investor, which pretty much means I bankroll projects plus get paid from them even if I don’t necessarily understand them. I have always had a nice eye for talent, which has taken me a good way. I don’t even focus entirely on the individual idea pitched to me, I try to focus on the actual individual behind the project. I know that talent can make lemonade out of lemons, so even if the project goes sideways the individual can make something work out. This is a lot more critical than it used to be, because I have a hard time understanding the technology behind most current ideas. The other afternoon I had a meeting with an energy retrofit services provider, plus by the end of the meeting I still wasn’t certain about what they did. I understand all the words in the phrase energy retrofit services but in listening to these people talk I just got lost! The next meeting I had was undoubtedly similar, as I had never before heard of pumping systems controls. The sizable difference was in delivery, plus this lady provided me a great pitch that told me what pumping systems were, plus how incredibly important pumping systems controls were for current apartment complexes. She certainly had real talent, plus while she lost me when starting in about chiller plant controls plus the cooling tower controls, I still adored her passion. I am going to do a bit of research about the so-called smart building industry she was speaking about plus see if there honestly is a future, plus any money to be made.
