"Click Here For Personal Coaching Live Training" Remember who invited you.

I’ve told the story about how I started my first online business hundreds of times before – in conversation, in interviews and more recently, live on stage – but today I plan on getting into more detail than I ever have before.

I was working as a senior drafter in a Bay Area architecture firm – loving what I was doing and looking for ways to expand my resume, possibly get promoted and earn a raise.

At this time, I was earning about $38,000/year.

I really wanted to get my architecture license but the process, which is supposed to take 3 years, typically takes people 6-8 years to complete – sometimes longer.

Although working towards my license is something my boss would have taken notice to, the path to licensure is one that most of my peers would eventually follow too, so I wanted something else under my belt, something different (and faster) that would help me stand out.

That’s when I was introduced to LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – a program introduced in 2005 by the US Green Building Council to systemize sustainable design and create incentive to build environmentally friendly buildings.

There’s an exam people can take to become a LEED Accredited Professional which allows one to manage projects under the LEED rating system, and because everything else was “going green” at this time, I figured it would be smart of me to “go green” as well and work towards my accreditation.

The office only had a few LEED APs (none in my department) and after asking them about the exam, I eventually found out that there was a ton of material to learn and the exam was very difficult to pass (with a 30-35% passing rate). Plus, there wasn’t nearly as many as classes or resources to help people pass the exam as there were for the architecture licensing exam, so a lot of the studying had to be self-driven.
