After dropping out of college following just one year of studies, Patrick Butler immersed himself in the world of sales and business. Rather than being confined to a strict curriculum, he doubled down on his education to learn about what fascinated him the most.
This led to a career in the residential solar industry. He began as a door-to-door salesman and transformed the opportunity to be a founder of Better Earth Inc in 2019. Since then, Better Earth has become the fastest-growing solar company in the nation.
In an effort to widen his search for knowledge and to share it with the world, Knowledge Without College was created as a platform for Patrick to host guests from all walks of life to share their specialized knowledge and unique perspective.
Patrick is based out of Los Angeles metropolitan area and works at Better Earth as Chief Operations Officer. He is co-founder of Better Earth and the host of the Knowledge Without College podcast and the Mars Mindset podcast.
