TCF507: Contractor Q&A – “Is 7% growth good or bad or average?”

Dan and Tom address a question from Jeff, who says that his business grew by 7% in March as his sales numbers rose. He asks if that is good, bad, or average.

In this episode, we talk about…  

  • In what way is a business growth rate good, bad, or average?
  • You define your own success; nobody else.
  • Whether your growth is good, bad, or average depends on what your goals were 
  • Growth is not necessarily a win.
  • Have a gross profit dollar goal, overhead dollar goal, and net profit dollar goal — base your assessment on those rather than your top line.

Submit your questions to help@thecontractorfight.com with the subject “Podcast” and Tom and Dan will try and answer them on an upcoming show.
