When you think of profit, you probably think about money. And that's cool.
But there's more.
Profit extends to ALL areas of your life -- your health, your relationships, your mental well-being, your self-worth -- all of it.
Your business is a vehicle to build the life you want.
But too many times we get it backward. We let the tail wag the dog and become a slave to the business.
At The Mile High Profit Summit we asked attendees to hold a mirror up to their life and ask "is this really what I want?"
As you watch the recordings you'll discover that far too often the answer is NO. Sadly, most contractors have boxed themselves into a stressful situation.
Nineteen speakers over three days lit up the stage giving attendees a whole new perspective about their life and their business.
From mindset to practical tips on sales, accounting, systems, and more, The Mile High Profit Summit had it all.
My name is Tom Reber and before I founded The Contractor Fight, I owned a profitable painting business in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I sold my business in 2012 and now I educate and coach contractors from all over the world to build strong businesses.
I believe that profit is a mindset.
My team and I have coached thousands of contractors and we've discovered that it doesn't matter...
If you don't focus on profit you'll never build the company you desire.
Profit is the key to your happiness and the success of your business.
Profit is also the key to your survival when Washington decides to fuck with your life.
THE SESSIONS BREAK DOWN
You've probably heard others talk about "making a choice to be profitable." And they make it sound so easy...but it doesn't work for you.
During this panel discussion, you'll hear from contractors who used to think just like you. But something changed. They'll let you in on how they were able to make the switch.
Collectively, this group of contractors has paid off over $500,000 in debt, increased their take home pay by $300,000 per year, and they're enjoying running their companies.
Moderator Chris Livingston made sure you discover the practical steps they took to make these massive shifts in their mindset and business.

If you're "profitable" but never have any money in the bank, Gina will help you understand why.

Steve Shinholser, Derek Johnson, and Dan Sherwood reveal how they take control of the sales process.
These three masters of the Shin-Fu Sales Process used to run around and do whatever the customer asked -- not anymore. Now they make PROFITABLE sales from the comfort of their office and they never drive out to a house unless they're SURE they're picking up a deposit check.
Even if you're pretty good at the Shin-Fu, moderator Neil Kristianson is going to make sure you walk away with something new.
Between the three of them, Steve, Derek, and Dan have made MILLIONS of dollars in sales (Derek sold over $1 MILLION in June 2021 alone) using the Shin-Fu. There is sure to be a trick or two for you to pick up and put into practice.
