JoshuaSmith of Reno, Nevada is no ordinary entrepreneur. He likes to identify obstacles that prevent him from accomplishing a project and then eliminate them with revolutionary thinking. Take for example, when he came up with the concept to build modular hinged greenhouses. The options for traditional gardening were disappointing him. So he developed and co-designed an entirely new concept for substantiable greenhouses. Josh Smith has over 17 years of experience as an entrepreneur. That experience came through building business enterprises in multiple industries, including wellness and technology.
With the modular greenhouses Josh saw the opportunity to expand beyond just building and selling the product. He actually identified how to potentially benefit others by broadening the outreach of the greenhouses. Josh Smith lives in Reno, Nevada, but he’s planning to take his modular greenhouses to school children everywhere. Providing them an opportunity to grow their own food by learning how the greenhouses can protect organic crops year round.
As a successful serial entrepreneur, Josh Smith lives by one rule, “set aside self-doubt.” He feels that most people talk themselves out of completing projects or starting a business because they don’t possess a “willingness to adapt.” Josh thinks that you must find something that you passionately want to create, in order to make it happen. Although Smith lives and works out of central location Reno, Nevada, he also firmly believes in global Eco-capitalism. He’s very much involved in his other businesses, but he has a greater plan for his modular greenhouses. Josh wants to create sustainable greenhouse gardening programs in every school in the US. He sees this as the link to serving humanity through expanding the environmental conservation element of the greenhouses.
Every person who’s always creating, thinking and restructuring businesses needs an outlet. When asked about the best way he spent $100, Josh spoke of his “epic days.” He plans a day to disconnect from constantly being in motion. He goes hiking, finds time to enjoy an organic meal or takes time to soak in a natural hot spring.
