“We need you! Here’s the thing with green buildings – those of us in it for a while get told “no” a whole lot! You have to have the energy to just move past the “no” and accept what actually can be done on those projects. Sometimes, you can do a little extra work and turn that “no” to a “yes!” I find that the folks coming into the industry are coming in with a passion for green building. They have an untouchable energy, and that energy energizes me and the rest of us who have been told “no” for a long time – and we need it! We need you as much as you need us to teach you how to do this.
