Hayes Barnard gets nominated for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Northern California Awards

Hayes Barnard & Lyndon - Paramount Equity®

As a CEO, one of your biggest jobs is to be a leader for those in your company. And leadership sometimes necessitates putting yourself out there and being in the spotlight. This is one of the biggest struggles for me – I think all the recognition should go to my very talented team, not myself. So it was with trepidation that I learned I had been nominated for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Northern California Awards.

This is a serious award – leaders of great companies, such as of Elon Musk of Tesla, Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google, and Lynn Jurich of Sunrun have all received this award in the past. While it was a great honor to be nominated, and then make it to the semifinals, I was apprehensive to share the spotlight with so many distinguished entrepreneurs from San Francisco and the Silicon Valley.

Leadership: Igniting Extraordinary Results Through Passion, Purpose and Love

by Hayes Barnard

Through growth, adversity and achievement, entrepreneurs wear many hats. To successfully scale a company, business leaders need to make the transition from “entrepreneur” to “professional,” and from an entrepreneurial company to a professional company.

Often, a singular leader leads in a singular fashion and it’s all about one person’s goals. As a leader of a growing group of talented individuals, I have discovered the value of thinking and leading more globally. There’s a saying: “Human beings hallucinate when not communicated to.” As a company grows, a leader needs to, early and often, address any undertones or rumblings that take place culturally within an organization. Our leadership team developed a weekly company-wide, interactive video conference to connect the hearts of our team. We talk about what’s working, share information and ideas, and address challenges to gain genuine perspective and rapport. It’s a time to ask transparent questions and it allows the organization to be authentic. This provides the whole group access to leaders and creates trust. It reminds every one of our company’s purpose and the principles that enable our customers to enjoy doing business with us. Continue reading the rest of this story >>

Paramount Equity® Testimonial: “You are like family to me.”

TESTIMONIAL sent to our VP today:

Good morning, Mr. Dawson –

I would like to take a second to thank you for Dwayne!  He has been such a wonderful help to me over the last several years and I am so faithful to him.  I have nothing but the utmost trust and loyalty to him – for helping me when I needed it the most (with a refi 7 years ago in my divorce) to improving my rates.  I have gone with new recommended insurance for Home and Auto, and now – my newest ‘adventure’ – Solar!

Actually, everyone I have met and dealt with at Paramount has been awesome.  You are all like family to me. Actually, better than family – I turned down family with offers to refinance and stayed with my tried-and-true Dwayne.  I count him as a friend.  I am crazy about everyone he has point me in touch with along the way …  appraisals (Sarah), singings (Sabrina), insurance (Aurora and Jason), Solar (Hana) – and the entire SolarCity team!

And, not you!  Thank you for helping me with the ‘Green’ check and especially for having such a great, caring team of people. The attitudes always start at the top and are reflected throughout the organization. Good job!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!  I appreciate Paramount Equity® and Dwayne is your great ambassador. Please have a wonderful day! ~karen  :]

-Karen M, San Diego

Karen, thank you for your testimonial!  We’re happy that all three of our sister companies, Paramount Equity® Mortgage, Paramount Energy Solutions and Paramount Equity® Insurance Services all delivered and helped you save thousands for years to come!
