One of the biggest struggles for contractors right now is building a kick ass team. Some of you are in dire need of someone who’s going to actually do what they say they’re doing to do and can back up all of their talk from the interview process. Or maybe you need someone who’s willing to just show up and work. Either way, it all comes down to running your business correctly, charging accordingly, and building your brand. Do these things right and you will attract the Winners to your business.

In this episode we discuss...

  • Charging what you’re worth so that you can pay for a team of Winners
  • The qualities that Winners look for in a business
  • Building a brand that is visible
  • Creating a culture where people want to work
