It's Never Been A Better Time To Be A Contractor

Almost every contractor I talk with lately is busy, busy, busy.

Their phones are ringing off the hook and they literally can't keep up with the new leads that are rolling in.

The economy is on fire. Especially for contractors. Lumber prices are at an historic high and homeowners don't even care. They're buying new homes, additions, and decks despite what the lumber costs. They want it bad!

All of that means things are going great for contractors right now. 

But... Busy Doesn't Equal Profitable!

Unfortunately, being busy doesn't make you rich.

Many contractors mistake the activity they see around them as profitability. They think that just because the phone is ringing they can do no wrong. 

"We'll make it up on the next job" is a common refrain of the busy-broke contractor.

But what happens when things shift? When there is no "next job?"

The Downturn Is Coming

It doesn't matter how great things look today.

Eventually the party will come to an end and construction will take it on the chin just like it did back in 2008.

It could be caused by any number of things...

Uncontrollable inflation.

High unemployment.

Government taxes.

Government handouts.

Rising interest rates.

When the phone stops ringing, when customers get scarce, when credit is no longer available, the market will purge the weak from the strong.

Those who have been running from deposit check to deposit check will go away. They'll be forced to find a job working for someone who was running a truly profitable business.

Profit As A Mindset

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...

  • how long you've been in business
  • what your niche is
  • where you're located
  • how many employees you have
  • how big your jobs are
  • who you serve

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.

Make the Choice to "Opt Out" of the Next Economic Storm
There are three things every contractor must have in place if they want to sail through hard times without a scratch -- a plan, a team to help execute the plan, and the confidence to step on the gas.
1 - Do You Have A Plan To Get Profitable Before The Market Dips?

Your profitability must become your all consuming focus if you want to thrive in the next economic downturn.

Hopefully, you have a step-by-step plan to ramp up your gross profit margin and squirrel away some of your net profits to weather the coming storm.

Certainly your competitors have thought about it. Some of them are building a war chest fund right now that they hope will put you out of business when the next recession hits.

As inflation begins to creep North, time may already be running out on your profit plan. 

2 - Is Your Current Plan Working?

Money rewards speed.

Those who move fast in business are rewarded with getting to the finish line first -- which usually means more money.

So even if you have a plan to fix your profit issues, is it working...or working fast enough?

Every year that you're not profitable is a year you could have been saving for retirement, or putting your kids through college.

Do you have the knowledge to put a kick-ass plan into play?

Do you have the will-power to see it through?

Do you have a team of #FWs (f'n winners) in your corner who support you?

3 - If You Are Profitable, Could You Be MORE Profitable?

Maybe profit isn't an issue for you.

But what if you haven't even begun to push the limits of profitability?

What if your idea of profit is less than what it could be?

Profit doesn't need to be a dirty word. Profit doesn't need to be limited by what you think is "normal" or "acceptable."

When the downturn comes you'll wish you had made and saved more money than you did. 

Do everything you can to take advantage of our current selling climate.

Step on the gas and...

Profit. Profit. Profit!

I Made a Choice to be Profitable

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.

Profit is a Choice...But How?

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 will make sure you discover the practical steps they took to make these massive shifts in their mindset and business.

The Secret Profit Formula Your Numbers Are Trying to Tell You

Gina is the founder of Green Tree Bookkeeping where she has been Tom's bookkeeper for 19 years.

Over the years, she has seen thousands of sets of books from contractors. Each set of books tells a story but not every business owner is listening.

Your Balance Sheet Wants to Tell You Something...Are You Listening?

Gina will share with you the secret information hidden in your balance sheet that most business owners don't pay attention to.

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

The First Steps to Higher Profits

Dan is the owner of Sherwood Painting in Marblehead, Massachusetts. 

Prior to finding The Contractor Fight, Dan was struggling to build a successful painting company. He didn't understand his numbers and was working far too hard. 

Dan Had an Ah-Ha Moment When He Took the Time to Understand His Numbers

During this "hands-on" talk, Dan will show you how to take the numbers in your Profit & Loss Statement and Balance Sheet to define some key metrics for your business.

Even if you know every number that The Contractor Fight teaches, you're going to learn something new here as Dan unveils a never before seen metric that can make you more profitable.

Control Freak: Shin-Fu Masters

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.

Profitability Happens When YOU Grab the Reins and Control the Customer

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.

Your Marketing is Where Profitability All Begins

Logan is the founder of The Contractor Growth Network. His team is responsible for hundreds of business-changing websites and marketing campaigns for contractors.

His marketing systems have created millions of dollars of sales for his clients. He's an expert at SMART marketing.

Does YOUR Marketing Attract Your PERFECT Client or Are You Giving Away Your Work to the WRONG Clients?

Logan will share with you what it takes to attract clients who see your value and WANT to work with you. It's not always about the cheapest click or the most traffic.

When you're connecting with the right client, it's so much easier to name your price and close the sale. Profit can't help but follow.

A Profitable Life

Serving as a Navy Seal for twelve and a half years, James developed a strategic outlook and the ability to operate under pressure, yet his experience also includes church ministry.

A dynamic storyteller, Jim regularly speaks at Fortune 500 companies including General Mills, John Deere, and Anheuser-Busch. He trains undergraduates in leadership, values, and the importance of serving the community around them.

Profit is About More Than Just the Bottom Line -- It's About LIFE

Making money is great but if you aren't living your purpose in all areas, you aren't living a truly profitable life. 

In this talk, you'll learn how everything you do in your business is directly tied back to your family life. You'll be challenged to live bigger and do more than you thought possible.

All in the Family: Secrets of Working With Your Spouse

So many contracting businesses are a family business. Working with your spouse can be tough when your family and business roles get confused and mixed.

During this discussion, moderator Chris Livingston will highlight practical steps you can take to work in harmony.

"We're Stronger Together" is Easier Said Than Done When I Work With Him/Her

Your spouse may be the perfect life partner but how can they also be the perfect work partner?

These successful contracting couples will share their experience of working together and how they've managed to make a positive work/family environment when they hardly leave each others sight all day long.

And if you work with a non-family partner, you're going to learn some lessons here as well.

The Game of Contracting

Nicole is the Relationship Manager for our $100k Contractor program and our Minister of Fun.

She's passionate about helping contractors get better. She's dedicated to getting contractors out of the chaos and home with their families. 

Contracting Doesn't Need to Be so Serious

During her time, Nicole will bring some energy to the room and give you a chance to get to know your fellow contractors. After all, a profitable business is a FUN place to work, which makes it easier to attract top talent.

She's also planned a very cool surprise for everyone in attendance for this session. You won't want to miss what she has to share!

Mastering Your People Process Leads to Profit

Suhaiba is the founder of The Full Circle Business where she helps contractors create profitable business processes. 

She is a systems specialist and the master of the checklist. With over 15 years of experience managing the “family business” – Philadelphia’s Premier Residential Painting Company – she truly knows what it takes to run a multi-million dollar business smoothly and successfully (hint – it requires structure and systems).

To Truly Scale, You Need Systems That Bake Profitability Right Into the Plan

In this session, you'll discover three solid systems you can take home and put into practice immediately. 

Suhaiba will share how she uses them every day in her painting business and how they've made her a better, more profitable leader.

The Carrot or the Stick: How to Effectively Motivate Your Team

Known as The Turnover Terminator, Art is fascinated by what makes humans tick in the workplace.

After selling his successful painting company, he formed Inner View Advisors, where he helps companies all across the country to attract, hire, and retain top talent.

Motivation is Unique to Each Employee and It's Not Always About the Money 

Art has literally helped to hire thousands of employees in his career and he knows what it takes to attract and keep people. And it's almost never about the money.

He'll share with you the top motivators he's seen and how to tell what's going to inspire your team to be their best.

SuperHuman You

As a kid, Dave was overweight and had a terrible stutter. Retreating into a world of fantasy and comic books, he dreamed of becoming SuperHuman. Now, as a motivational speaker, he uses SuperHuman feats of strength to share his message with his audience.

Dave combines incredible feats of strength and a powerful message, creating a presentation unlike ANYTHING you've ever seen before.

Finding the Strength to Battle Through the Emotional Ups and Downs of Leadership

The mom who lifts a car off their child, the fireman who carries a person from a burning building, the dad battling cancer - we all have inner strength we can call on. But how?

Dave will inspire you to leave your limitations behind and become the SUPERHUMAN version of yourself.

The Contractor Fight Awards

It's time to celebrate your achievements and all the hard work you've put in over the past year.

These #FWs are Bringing Respect & Dignity Back to the Trades

We're honoring the best The Contractor Fight has to offer. We'll take time to highlight attendees who have impacted their lives and the lives of their team/family in the last year.

You'll discover what it took for them to make these big moves and how you can do it too.

BONUS:  What Are You Going to do About It?

In 2013, Neil sold his remodeling company and started a new adventure. Today he works with small business owners all over the world to build automated systems that power their business.

He's also the guy behind the scenes at The Contractor Fight.

Information is Useless if You Don't Use It

We all love to attend live events and fill ourselves with inspiration and motivation. Then we come home and promptly forget everything we learned. We get back in the day-to-day grind and never change a thing about our businesses.

During this hands-on session, Neil will help you get clear about what you learned over the previous three days and help you develop a unique plan to put into action when you get home.

Optional Spouse/Business Partner Half-Priced Ticket

It sucks when you go to an event alone and learn great new information to use in your business. You come home ready to implement a bunch of new ideas when...

Your spouse or business partner stops you dead in your tracks. 

Unfortunately, they weren't there. They didn't see all the life-changing presentations like you did. They didn't have those key ah-ha moments.

That's why we're offering you the chance to bring your spouse or partner for half-price! Just purchase your ticket (either Standard or VIP) and add a half-price ticket for them at checkout. (See the checkout pages for details). They'll receive all the same great benefits your ticket provides.

You'll BOTH come home pumped and ready to make changes in your business and life!


Your Emcee

Chris is the sales manager for The Contractor Growth Network.

A former Army Ranger, his infectious energy and positive spirit make him the perfect master of ceremonies to lead you through this jam-packed three day event.

Morning Movement & Breath - Thursday & Friday

Chris, aka Yoda, is the mindset coach in the $100k Contractor program and a yoga instructor for over ten years. He's been keeping Tom's mind straight for years and has helped dozens of contractors and business owners master their mindset. 

America is Under So Much Stress, We No Longer Know How to Breathe

Profitability starts with a healthy you. If you're stressed, run down, and unhealthy, it becomes impossible to run a profitable business and maintain a profit filled life.

On Thursday and Friday morning in the park, Chris will lead you through a morning movement and breath routine that will get you ready for the day. He'll also teach you some breathing exercises you can do in your office chair, in the truck, or any time you're feeling tense. 

All Three Mornings

Bring your questions and contracting dilemmas to Denver. Each day, you'll have the opportunity to ask one of The Contractor Fight Coaches for help. 

The Quality of Your Answers Depends on the Quality of Your Questions

Each morning The Fight Team will be available for your toughest business challenges. Stop by and pick their collective brain. Get specific help with marketing, sales, leadership, hiring, accounting, 

Thursday Night Rooftop Party
