Here's Why An Amazon-Style Loyalty Program Won't Solve Bed Bath And Beyond's Woes

Bed Bath & Beyond is an existential bind. It’s 45 years old, so maybe it’s facing a mid-life crisis. And the retailer's new Amazon Prime-esque loyalty program —shoppers get a 20% discount and free shipping for a $29 annual fee — likely won't solve it. Go back 15 years, and Bed [...]

A Unique Test For Solar

When Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump met for their first debate at Hofstra University last month, it took less than 20 minutes for solar energy to become a topic of the discussion. “We can deploy a half a billion more solar panels,” said Secretary Clinton. “We can have enough clean energy to power every home. We can build a new modern electric grid. That's a lot of jobs; that's a lot of new economic activity.” I agree. Fortunately, we’re already on our way. While renewables account for seven percent of our nation’s electric generation, recent estimates by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) show that additions of utility scale solar – the large solar farms that power thousands of home and businesses – will exceed those from any other energy source. To put this in context, EIA projects that 9.5 gigawatts (GW) of utility-scale solar will be added this year alone, compared with 3.1 GW last year and 9.4 GW total from 2013 through 2015. And, when it comes to homes and businesses, the U.S. exceeded one million installations earlier this year. A public opinion survey by Pew Research Center just found nearly nine out of 10 Americans support expanding solar. For many, it’s difficult to fully grasp the extent and speed of the transformation that is happening in the clean energy sector, particularly solar. Costs are coming down at an unprecedented rate. In many parts of the country and the world, we’ve achieved grid parity, which means the cost of solar is equal or less than buying energy off the electrical grid. In a few months, we’ll mark the one-year anniversary of the historic COP21 agreement. This is all good news. However, the more challenging aspect of today’s solar market is rooted in a few factors beyond industry’s control, including short term disruptions from the recently extended Investment Tax Credit, as well as a supply/demand mismatch. Our industry has been through a number of ups and downs. I’ve helped navigate our company through many of them over the past 13 years. What makes this period of uncertainty unique is that it comes in the midst of an unprecedented worldwide shift to solar adoption. Five years ago, costs were significantly higher than they are now. A year ago, we didn’t have a commitment on the part of 195 nations that we have today. No one company or individual is going to shift the world to solar power. Therefore, it’s up to solar industry leaders to help transform the market through what we can control: technology and innovation, the pursuit of IP, the cultivation of talent, and responsiveness to customers’ energy needs and goals. In short, we have a lasting foundation and, for all intents and purposes, the world’s support to lead the way to a clean energy future. Let’s build on it. For starters, leading companies should continue to innovate by improving the cost of energy, efficiency and ease of use. Today, SunPower holds the world record in the lab for large-area high efficiency silicon solar panels: 24.1 percent (1). Just a few years ago, this number would have been relevant mostly in the laboratory where it was first accomplished. Today, however, it’s about enabling much more energy to be produced in any given space. This is a tipping point for energy and infrastructure priorities broadly. Equally important, leaders in solar should prioritize the development of Intellectual Property (IP) as central to long-term viability. For decades, we’ve seen the high-tech, semiconductor and biopharmaceutical sectors consistently at or near the top of the list for patent filings, which has resulted in countless inventions benefitting society. Through R&D, innovative partnerships and acquisitions, solar can take a page from high-tech and other sectors that recognize the multi-faceted value of IP. As an example, SunPower has been awarded more than 600 patents over the past 30 years and they’re core to the technology we’re developing every day. Finally, we must cultivate the innovators of today and tomorrow: namely, employees and customers. The recent growth in solar wouldn’t be possible without individuals who constantly questioned the status quo, as well as the end users willing to take risks and up-end a centuries-old mindset on how to best source energy. Companies and organizations like Apple, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, Stanford University, and Toyota to name just a few. We’ll only achieve the ambitious goals for the future by seeking out those who are willing to keep looking around the corner for what comes next. As 2017 approaches, it’s fair to say that solar is undergoing a unique test. I have no doubt that leaders who embrace the core fundamentals will thrive. At that point, a half billion more solar panels won’t just be a worthwhile challenge, but a stop on our way to a billion installed. The world is expecting it. Tom Werner serves as president and CEO of the Silicon Valley-based SunPower Corporation, which provides clean energy through residential, commercial and power plant solar installations worldwide. 1.

Five Important Steps to Turning Your Hobby Into a Profitable Business

My story is similar to thousands of graduates before me. I graduated from school a few years back only to realize that the saying "there are no jobs" was not without merit. In my bid to leave the ever swelling mass of the unemployed, I was forced to think inside the box and look at the skills and hobbies I had formerly taken for granted. The unbelievable truth is that there is a market for everything. The challenge is discovering what to sell and how best to get it to the people who need it. Just like me, there are lots of other people who have similar stories of successfully turning their hobbies into lucrative businesses. And who says you can't be next? For instance, Dustin Gyger, CEO of Six Three Zero Bicycle Company managed to successfully turn his cycling hobby into a six figure business. In his own words, "Riding my bicycle in the neighborhood was my favorite thing in the world to do." He combined his keen interest in fashion and pop culture and his obsession with bikes into a major business and revolutionized the cycling culture with really cool bike designs. Maybe you are one of those who people that have really cool hobbies, and you are wondering what to do so it will start making money for you. Well, here are a few steps to turning your hobbies into a lucrative business. 1. Don't Underestimate the Earning Capacity of Your Hobby Kim Lavine started making microwavable pillows as gifts for her children's teachers in 2001. When her husband lost his job around the same time, she turned her pastime into a source of income. She went from selling pillows out of her truck to setting up mall kiosks and incorporating her company, Green Daisy, in 2002. Within two years, Lavine's Wuvit pillow was in national chains, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's and Bed Bath & Beyond, and by 2006, it had generated more than $1 million in sales. 2. Determine the marketability of your hobby To determine whether your hobby can become a business, first ask: "Do I have a great product and can I demonstrate and prove its marketability?" This may sound elemental but too many entrepreneurs fail to consider this question. When Terry Finley bought his first horse, Sunbelt, for $5,000 in 1991, he felt stuck in his job selling life insurance. After he won his first race that year, he knew his hobby had a market and could be profitable with further investment. Finley ran small ads in racing papers and attracted an investor who paid $5,000 for partial ownership of Sunbelt. Soon after, he quit his job and founded West Point Thoroughbreds. Today, his company owns 55 syndicated horses with 550 investors and revenue of over $5 million annually. 3. Find paying customers When Craig Jenkins-Sutton started designing gardens he had no formal landscaping training, just a lifelong green thumb. Growing up in central Minnesota, he always had a love for gardening. He knew he didn't want to work for someone else, so he put a small ad in the Chicago tribune, offering his garden design services. In a week, he received 40 calls but only one turned into a customer. That one customer was enough to get the business going. That same year, he founded garden design company, Topiarius, in Chicago. Jenkins-Sutton learned how to market his business mainly by trial and error. With vast social media channels available at our disposal, we can reach customers faster than ever. 4. Combine your passions Megan Duckett moved to Los Angeles from Australia with big dreams of working in the entertainment industry. She took a job with an event planner and in her free time began sewing at her kitchen table, making beddings, drapes and costumes. When the request to make the linings inside 10 decorative coffins for her employer's Halloween event came up, Duckett took on the challenge. That was the point when she realized that she possessed a skill set that other people didn't have. Megan Duckett positioned herself as a specialist in designing props and entertainment décor and this set her apart from the rest. Big projects like designing 25 silk chandeliers for The Mirage in Las Vegas, came a year later. She has gone on to start two businesses and manages over 44 employees around the world. 5. Prepare for a steep learning curve Transitioning your hobby from being a fun activity you do, to relax to a full-time business is never easy and many hobbyists-cum-businessmen cautioned that after turning their hobby into work, they no longer enjoyed doing it. The pressure of working to a schedule and meeting financial goals and customer expectations simply took away the fun, relaxation, and personal satisfaction they had previously felt doing it. At the height of the Great Recession, the New York Times looked into how some corporate layoffs used the tough economic times as launching pad to pursue their passion businesses. The conclusion? It turns out, transitioning from hobby to business is harder than it seems. It involves meeting a lot of deadlines, six-day weeks, a steep learning curve, a huge commitment, a non-existent social life, no security, physical exhaustion and emotional meltdowns. According to Bplans, it is important to ask yourself the following questions before you take that plunge. Will you enjoy doing your hobby on a deadline? Sure you love baking the occasional cupcake for friends and family. Will you enjoy turning them out day in day out, under heavy pressure and tight deadlines for years on end? Are you really committed to turning your hobby into a business? Starting up will be tough. You will be wearing a lot of hats for a while- accountant, customer service rep, brand ambassador, CEO and so on. This might be a good time for you to think about what it takes to be an entrepreneur Image Credit -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
