Serial entrepreneur, TV personality and top-performing podcast host Jayson Waller’s new book, “Own Your Power: No Excuses. No Bullsh*t. Your Time Is Now” has reached multiple No. 1 rankings on Amazon’s bestseller lists and also has been named to bestseller lists for the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. It is a culmination of lessons Waller has learned over more than 15 years of entrepreneurship in the home security and solar industries. Waller has become a multimillionaire without a college education or generational wealth, having bootstrapped his way to the top. The hardcover edition releases early 2022.

Waller pivoted to solar in 2014 after seeing another home security entrepreneur make a similar change. Waller’s current company, POWERHOME SOLAR, is one of the nation’s top installers of solar and energy-efficiency products, having been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies four times in the last five years. The company has hired nearly 1,500 people since 2020 and is on track to become a billion-dollar business. His book includes eight chapters, each one ending with a challenge that readers can take in applying Waller’s lessons to their own lives.

“When I was named an EY Entrepreneur of the Year Southeast Award winner in 2019, I was encouraged to start a podcast or write a book because my story was so unique,” Waller said. “It’s impossible for me to choose one thing over the other, and in writing this book, I now can say I’ve done both. My goal is to inspire as many people as I can to take control of their lives – that’s how I can give back.”

Waller’s influence has grown with each touch of media. His podcast, True Underdog, has been ranked as a Top 3 Apple entrepreneurship podcast and has achieved more than 1.5 million downloads since launching early in 2020. He is also a judge on David Meltzer’s pitch show “2 Minute Drill,” airing on Bloomberg TV and Amazon Prime Video, and a guest on Meltzer’s new late-night business talk show “Office Hours,” airing on the same networks.
