Megh Patel, the co-founder and CEO of Build ZERO, a construction and renovation company that focuses on reducing and reusing construction waste to make the construction process more efficient. Build ZERO also provides DIY solar kits and permit designs to help families afford renewable electricity.
In this episode, Megh and I discuss a range of topics, including renewable energy, solar power, and Megh's start-up journey. But our conversation quickly turns to more philosophical subjects, such as the innate characteristics of human beings, coping mechanisms for heartbreak, finding purpose in life, dealing with self-doubt and a lack of worthiness, and the impact of meditation and honesty on our lives. We also delve into the role of ego in decision-making and the different types of happiness that can come from acts of kindness and a sense of accomplishment.
I learned a lot from Megh's experiences and I think you will too. Tune in to hear our fascinating conversation.
