MOORESVILLE, NC — POWERHOME SOLAR CEO, 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 is now available for purchase at OYPbook.com and Amazon for $19.95.
Readers who purchase the book from OYPbook.com before Jan. 31 will get an exclusive invitation to join Waller in a private 1-hour Zoom workshop on Feb. 22 that is aimed at sharing valuable entrepreneurial insights that helped Waller build a nearly billion-dollar business. OYPbook.com is also the only place to purchase the collectible hardcover edition of the book for the same $19.95 price.
Waller and his team of more than 2,200 employees at POWERHOME SOLAR will commemorate the book launch with giveaways at their annual employee party on Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m.
“There are eight principles in my book that are foundational to the culture we’ve built together at POWERHOME SOLAR,” Waller said. “Our annual employee event is a great opportunity to recognize our incredible team while celebrating this momentous occasion together.”
The downloadable version of “Own Your Power” already has achieved best-selling accolades on Amazon, the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. The book 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.
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.
“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.
