In this episode, we talk about…  

  • What happens when you try to do everything alone

Tom and Dan answer your questions about the impact of the current state of the economy on contractors, how contractors can thrive and survive during this time, and what they can do to compete with large companies. They also share the strongest attribute, which helped them to survive and thrive during the past recessions.

 

In this episode, we talk about… 

  • Question1: What is your forecast for the bottom of the economy to fall out, forcing subs and generals to scramble?
    • The past few years (except the pandemic phase) have been easy to make money in business—If you weren't making money during those years, then you're not doing your job well.
    • Develop the habits of what a successful business owner does with their time, energy, and focus.
    • Ups and downs in the economy are natural. It's going to happen. Control what you can control.
    • Choose not to participate in the recession.

 

  • Question 2: In a market where the two largest companies are reducing prices by 30 to 40% below the market rate, how can you compete?
    • Discounting products or services doesn't mean they're undermining product prices or services.
    • Build your brand. Build value. Know what your customers really want—big companies can be tone-deaf because they are too busy steamrolling their systems.
    • Differentiate yourself with your unique selling proposition—how you pre-plan a job, how you show up, and follow up on things with people and yourself.

After events and workshops, there's a lot of hype, positive energy, and people are excited about the new information they gained — but this is where it goes wrong. Unfortunately, most people leave events with a flood of information and either overwhelm their employees or family members or suffer mental exhaustion.

 

Dan talks about your next steps after attending events and seminars and how to prevent yourself from crashing.

 

In this episode, we talk about…  

  • Scenarios with most people after attending events:
    • Constantly bombarding others with information
    • Become mentally exhausted and tired
    • Return to normal life as they get back
  • What to do after attending events to take advantage of the knowledge, solutions, and tools you learned

Taking questions from Mira and Dan Wilson, Tom and Dan discuss feeling uneasy while charging high prices as a newbie with limited experience and what contractors can do to maintain and care for their mental health.

 

In this episode, we talk about… 

  • Question 1: As a newcomer to the contracting industry with limited experience, I feel apprehensive about charging "high prices." What advice can you give me? 
    • High or low price is subjective to the consumer.
    • Charge whatever the formulas tell you, no matter how high or low you think it is.
    • As a newbie, you're more hungrier than others, so you need to take advantage of that.
    • Understanding why the client wants to do the project is what makes you valuable.

 

  • Question 2: I believe contractors are overlooking mental health. What do you recommend for clearing your head and resetting your brain?
    • Playing golf, reading philosophy, and meditating can be great mental health support methods.
    • Be clear on the controlling and controllable things in your day and life.

Have you ever had a tendency to get carried away with strong emotions or even rage when communicating with a client? By reacting with your emotions or pouncing on the clients before they can even get their words out, you can end up in an argument instead of a discussion. The most important thing is to listen rather than pounce, and Dan discusses the importance of this. 

 

In this episode, we talk about…  

  • Taking a deep breath and being mindful of your communication style before replying
  • About the 5-4-3-2-1 communication theory and its advantages
  • Communication examples where pauses were taken and not pounced upon

Tom and Dan answer a question from Dominic, who is concerned about letting an employee go. The employee has been working with Dominic for two years, but his skills have not improved, and he has suffered an injury. He wants to know if it is better to let the employee go or to keep spending money on him.

 

In this episode, we talk about… 

  • In addition to an employee problem, there's probably a leadership or training issue
  • Wasting money on inefficiencies and callbacks is never a good idea
  • You hired the wrong person — be selective about who you're hiring
  • Have non-negotiables of what it takes to be part of your team
  • Set expectations for new hires

In the first episode of this two-part series, Tom and Steve discussed the first five mistakes that contractors make when they try to sell. Today, the two discuss the rest of them so you can continue learning how to make a sale and avoid costly, no-return mistakes.

 

In this episode, they discuss… 

  • Some common mistakes most contractors make when selling:
  1. Focusing on your reasons for people to buy instead of theirs
  2. No or inconsistent sales training 
  3. Defending your higher price
  4. Going too technical in the process
  5. Pouncing — If you're pouncing, you're losing; pouncing is like fighting

Tom shares with you some ways contractors continue to make mistakes that lead to the failure of their business. These are the kinds of mistakes that can make it hard for you to find work in the future and kill your business. 

 

You should avoid these mistakes at all costs! It's so easy to make mistakes like these, but it's so vital that you don't!

 

In this episode, Tom discusses… 

  • Some of the top ways contractors continue to beat themselves: 
  1. There's no clarity around your vision, potential clients, etc
  2. You don't have a plan for your sales process
  3. Not having a plan for your marketing
  4. There's no plan for how to complete a project profitably
  5. You're not tracking your stuff
