Josh Smith is the man behind the Reno, Nevada-based Modular Greenhouses. The company focuses on selling modular greenhouses that can be expanded. Its focus is serving the home gardener who wants to grow fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables year-round, but does not have the capacity to install a large greenhouse used in industrial farming.
Mr. Smith was recently interviewed by Ideamensch. He founded Modular Greenhouses a few years ago while trying to get a greenhouse for personal gardening and farming use. Josh Smith now serves as the CEO of the company. Below are some of the interview highlights with Ideamensch.
Josh Smith was asked about some trends that he thinks are exciting. He responded that organic farming is now on the rise. Home gardening is also making a comeback. 3D printing fascinates Josh Smith as well. He believes it can help shorten the time span between prototypes and finished products. Technology and changes in human behavior are two things you need to pay attention to as a businessman says Smith.
Ideamensch then asked Josh Smith what is a key idea of his that makes him more productive as a business person. Josh Smith says that the key in his life is to have something that you really feel passionate about. When you are working on something you care about deeply, then you have a strong motivation. This motivation will push you to achieve great things and to keep going. Persistence is necessary in business says Smith. You also must put in a lot of time and effort. When you do something you love, it becomes much easier.
Mr. Smith was asked what advice he would give his younger counterpart. Josh Smith says that you need to enjoy the ride. He also says do not rush into things. Not listening to people who put you down is another good word of advice he says. You need to believe in yourself if you are to succeed in business. Josh says you should just ignore people who have no knowledge of the field you are trying to get into. After all, what do they know about what you are trying to do?
