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 with the subject “Podcast” and Tom and Dan will try and answer them on an upcoming show.
