Global Resources Reviews: Solar Start-Up, Needed Business Guidance

Global Resources provided business consulting services to this energy industry client.

Situation

This energy company “was a place where we were all working very hard and getting nowhere.  A lot of work was being done, but we weren’t making enough money to keep our head above water, financially speaking.  We are all very smart people with an idea that we should be able to take advantage of our knowledge and experience in the solar industry to make a profitable company.  We know solar, but we just couldn’t seem to make all the pieces come together.  We lacked focus and business experience.”

Can you connect the face with the shoes?

With winter finally behind us, everyone at Global Resources is able to take their summer shoes out of storage and show off some dazzling footwear.
