In this episode, Eric is looking to inspire entrepreneurs and real pond enthusiasts by sharing the story of how he came up in the business. Eric was ultimately provoked to the next level by a late client and that turned out to be the propeller. To raise the bar of greatness, you need to be provoked out of your comfort zone and take a leap of faith in yourself. Sometimes you have to get on someone’s nerve to provoke others to greatness. Remember, without pressure, diamonds cannot be made!

Eric shares his insight on:

  • Eric sharing his prototype helix pond skimmer with a former client
  • Sticking with his niche throughout the financial crisis
  • Staying true to who you are when you watch your vision evaporate
  • Provoking greatness in others to see what other people can do
  • Probing in the right way to inspire deep thought
  • Dave’s great idea to raise capital and get shit done
  • Remember, everything happens for a reason
  • Leading by your gut instinct instead of strictly what the numbers say
  • Dismiss negativity as soon as possible
  • Never leave anything on the table
