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

In this episode Tom talks with Josh Abramson founder of Allbright Painting. ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING began humbly 27 years ago with a few hand-stenciled wooden signs hung up on street corners in the San Fernando Valley.  After receiving his training and certificate of completion from West Valley Occupational Center in Woodland Hills, CA, Josh Abramson would go out everyday and try to promptly respond to the incoming phone numbers on his pager by pulling over and finding a pay phone in the hopes that he would be the first contractor to call the customer back.  His persistence and hard work paid off and slowly the business began to grow.  The early years were extremely rough, but eventually he hired his first employee and began to make a name for himself.
