Contractors Who Want To Grow, There Are...

7 FATAL 'GROWTH STRATEGIES' THAT SINK MOST CONTRACTORS

Discover the ROCK-SOLID PRINCIPLES that really work when growing and scaling your business.

The Fatal Seven

"If only I...

  • Had a team of sales people
  • Could run $10,000 of Facebook ads each month
  • Was able to buy a bigger shop on a main street in town
  • Could get a six-figure line of credit
  • Had a partner who could do the selling
  • Was able to add 5 more crews
  • Could double my sales at my current prices

...then everything would be better."

Contractors spend a lot of time searching for the "easy button." They think there is some magical shortcut that successful businesses understand that they're missing out on.

But here's the truth.

ALL of these strategies work. But only if you're building from a solid foundation. Unfortunately, most contractors skip the foundation and build on sand.

Shitty Carpenter - Shitty Paint

When I started my first painting company, my cousin Mike worked with me. 

When we'd pull up on a job and start to caulk and sand, far too often we were faced with gaping miters and mismatched joints. 

Mike would look the job over and declare, "you can't polish a turd."

It was his way of saying that our paint job would only be as good as its underlying foundation.

The same is true of the seven fatal strategies. Without a strong underlying foundation each strategy is destined to fail and take your business with it.

Secure Your Foundation or Fail
  • Without a sales process, hiring a sales team is just accelerating your failure.

  • Throwing big money at Facebook ads without understanding the basics of marketing will only make you "busy" chasing the WRONG dead-broke customers.

  • Dramatically increasing your shop space overhead without understanding the math behind your decision can burden you with monthly payments you can't afford.

  • Increasing your line of credit before putting good cash flow management systems in play is going to cause you sleepless nights. Living from deposit-check to deposit-check takes years off your life.

  • Adding two dead-broke contractors together in a partnership doesn't equal two wealthy contractors. Two broke contractors equal two guys that resent each other.

  • Adding crews before adding systems to manage those crews leaves a trail of pissed off customers and inefficient low-profit work.

  • Walmart can afford to sell massive volume at low prices. A local contracting company cannot. Doubling your low profit sales only doubles the rate you go out of business.
