July Member Spotlight – Homeland Solar
Since 2004 (with lifelong Washtenaw County personnel), Homeland Solar – “own your own power™” – focuses on energy issues and Energy Star building (Dave Friedrichs as owner has been licensed builder since 1990). The shift into solar came with the technology’s rapid advance (toward universal affordability) – and, specifically, the legislature’s 2008 passage of Public Act 285 (PA285) requiring all utilities to produce 10% of their power from renewable sources by 2015. (Note – now 15% by 2021.). We put an emphasis on user-ownership of solar, rather than third-party ownership. Heavy legal and operations background in professional work with community associations can help make solar possible FOR ALL, through user-owned and financed community solar projects, rather than simply the 30% or so of property owners who have favorable south-facing exposure to the sun.

Local Community Blast started in 2009 and I started with them in 2016. I offer direct mail marketing for both B2B and B2C companies in their local markets.
Married for 30 years to my husband (Scott, an engineer at GM) and mother to 3 terrific adult children, my life has been blessed! I have a Business Marketing degree from Auburn University and have always looked at how to make any organization function at its best. After working in the corporate world before having children and then as a substitute teacher in the Dexter school district for 16 years (a job that offered the same work days as my children) and volunteering for many things from Cub Scouts, to Swim Team to Equestrian Team to Prom while continuing to serve in my local church in the Worship Team and county 4H, my children grew up and are on their own. So, I decided to build my own career and set about for three years looking for the best place to do that. After learning about how Mary Kay is founded on the principles of God first, family second and career third and treating people by the Golden Rule, along with the positive “sisterhood” of fellow Consultants and of course, the opportunity to make money, I found that Mary Kay is the perfect place for me and have been building my business with Mary Kay for over 2 years (since January, 2015). I absolutely LOVE what I do!
What sets me apart from shopping for skin care or color cosmetics at a store is the personal service, trying product before you buy to make sure it is right for you, a 100% return policy and the fact that I carry inventory so that you very likely don’t have to wait weeks for product.
Let me help you LOVE the skin you are in!
