Book Review Kam Williams on
“In building NobleStrategy, [Bill Parrish] not only built a force in the construction management industry, he built one of the few black-owned companies that have become a leader in the $90 billion-dollar green economy—one of the sectors that President Obama has encouraged companies, large and small, to enter in order to out-innovate and out-compete the rest of the world…
The lessons you can learn in this book come at an apt time. As the black jobless rate stands at 16%, legions of African-Americans will have to embrace entrepreneurship as a means of finding employment and wealth-building opportunities… I encourage you to open the pages of this book… if you want to gain insight into the lives of entrepreneurs and what it truly takes to succeed.”
—Excerpted from the Foreword Introduction (pgs. ix-x)
Despite the recent economic recession, William Parrish managed to turn his
start-up company, NobleStrategy, into a multimillion-dollar construction
management firm. He did so, in part, by securing government contracts to take
advantage of the rapidly-growing green industry.
When it comes to environment-oriented corporations, it seems all we ever read about in the press are the colossal, taxpayer-subsidized failures such as Solyndra and Ener1. But this burgeoning field has its share of success stories, too. And as long as eco-friendly President Obama’s in office, any ambitious entrepreneur ought to consider approaching the feds for a share of the money earmarked for energy-efficiency programs.
