How do you create the path for growth and opportunity for your employees? Today, Tim and Derek share the system they created for promoting their employees. The guys discuss the mastery ladder they created that their employees follow to get a raise and promotion.

  • Tips for creating the mastery ladder

  • The importance of transparency in pay scales for employees to know their worth

The greatest investor of all time, Warren Buffet, once said – If you can choose and focus on the most important 20% of your tasks, you'll actually get about 80% of the benefits from those tasks. In other words, by prioritizing the right tasks, you can achieve a lot of success. 

 

Today, Steve talks about prioritizing the right tasks and how focusing on the top 20% of tasks can reap 80% of the benefits. He offers his advice on how to identify high-value tasks and eliminate low-value ones in order to save time and resources.

 

In this episode, Steve discusses:

 

  • Prioritizing the right tasks to save time and resources

  • How prioritizing money tasks, phone calls, and consultations helped Steve

  • Prioritizing tasks and delegating or eliminating less important ones

  • Choosing to say "yes" only to potential clients, avoiding time-consuming consultations

  • Categorizing to-do lists into immediate, intermediate, and long-term tasks

There are two types of life contractors live — contractors who work tirelessly without a clear direction, believing hard work alone can solve their problems, and contractors who have a purpose, goal, and focus for their work, and their workload is organized chaos rather than just chaos. Which life of a contractor do you relate to? 

 

Today, Tim and Derek discuss the importance of having a clear vision and goals for contractors. They want you to build a purpose-driven contracting empire and offer valuable advice on having a clear purpose, goal, and vision and preventing daily grinding.

 

In this episode, they discuss:

  • Tim's experience of how working without purpose used to drain him, compared to now feeling energized with a defined end goal

  • The difference between working without purpose vs. working with purpose and vision

  • Setting systems and processes to avoid constant stress

  • Creating a long-term vision for your business that allows you and your team freedom and opportunities to grow

  • Finding joy in the work by knowing where you're headed each day

Today, Tom warns you against getting too comfortable with success. He shares a story of a contractor who lost his way after finding success. Having applied strategies from “The Fight,” this contractor saw his business and finances grow substantially. However, he began taking his foot off the gas, feeling like he had “arrived.” This led him into trouble. Tom emphasizes that hunger and desire are what fuel success, and these can fade when our bellies are full. He wants you to stay hungry and continue showing up with passion, even after wins.

 

Communication Highlights:

[00:00] - Intro

[01:21] - Don’t get comfortable with success

[01:36] - Contractor who was seduced of his success

Most contractors do this – wandering the crowded expo hall at a trade show, ogling the latest power tools, equipment, and gadgets on display. It's easy to get distracted by the flashy demos and shiny new toys. But are you really getting the most value out of these events?

 

In this episode, Tom shares his blunt opinion on why most contractors go to trade shows: "to jerk off to all the tools and then go party." While the tools are exciting, very few attendees actually take the time to learn how to grow their business in the educational sessions.

 

He wants you to stop "jerking off to tools" and start focusing on becoming a craftsman of your business.

 

In this episode, Tom discusses:

  • Most contractors go to trade shows to look at new tools instead of attending educational sessions that could help them make more money

  • Very few contractors know basic info about their business

  • Contractors need to apply the same "craftsman mentality" they have for their trade to build their business

  • Attending educational sessions is a "literal gold" for growing a business

  • Becoming a business owner instead of a tradesman

Tim and Derek discuss the story about a consulting job Derek did for a local church which they call “The Tarantino Close.” The two discuss how Derek used his skills to read the different personalities – which is an effective sales technique – and move the conversation directly towards a close even in situations where that doesn't always occur.

 

In this episode, they discuss:

  • The Story of "The Tarantino Close" – a consulting call that went perfectly

  • Reading personalities is important while conversing with prospects

  • Flowing through conversations naturally and going where the client wants to rather than sticking rigidly to a script

  • Being a good listener is important to understand timelines, budgets, concerns, and closing the job accordingly
