Josh Smith’s Wisdom and Inspiration for Innovative Entrepreneurs
With 18 years of expertise, Josh Smith of Reno, Nevada, has learned many lessons on being a successful entrepreneur. His experiences have led to a string of businesses in the wellness and sustainable technology fields. His current position as CEO and Co-Founder of Modular Greenhouses, expands his innovative businesses into the home and gardening industry.
Modular Greenhouses is a venture who’s mission solves a problem and benefits the environment. When Josh Smith experienced personal obstacles in buying a small greenhouse for his yard, he teamed with a fellow staff member and inventor to create a unique modular greenhouse. As a result, the compact greenhouse allows home gardeners to grow their own organic vegetables without chemicals.
In a recent interview, Smith discussed his early beginnings not as an entrepreneur but as an artist. His creative side focused on art which helped him in envisioning innovative ideas. Through his art, he created diagrams of products and services that solved important problems in various industries. These drawings evolved into him becoming an “Inventor” of products.
Even as a successful entrepreneur and inventor, Josh Smith made serious errors in his past. He admits he almost quit being an entrepreneur because of his selection of unsuitable business partners. However, this experience created a learning opportunity in how to choose perspective partners, employees and friends.
With his experience and success as a leader, Josh provides priceless wisdom for other entrepreneurs. He highly recommends everyone to read Steven Pressfield’s book “The War of Art”. He expresses the book as the truth to achieving success. He also recommends two important websites for the mind and stress. The Lumosity site brings entertaining mind games to life. ActiveCollab.com is a simple project management tool to help anyone stay organized, productive and stress free.
Josh encourages others to stay in touch with reality and filter out unwanted facts. He embraces the ability to stay positive when in doubt. Keeping in mind that other successful individuals have accomplished amazing things without technology or the volume of information available today.
