EP 116: How Would You Scale a Building Company?

My father was a carpenter.

Inspired by him, I took up the tool and spent 7 years as a plumber before I ventured into business.

So, believe me…

I can totally see how tough it is to navigate this industry.

Whether you’re a builder, plumber, carpenter etc
There are some incredibly unique factors that come with owning a business of this nature.

Factors that aren’t often considered.

Like, seriously…
What happens when you’re in your 40s, 50s… or even 60s?

I have all the respect in the world for those who do it,
But that’s not an easy field to work in later in life.

Even outside of the pressures on the body, there is business pressure too.

What about the 90-day term cash flow cycles that apply to almost every trade?

If not extremely careful, I can totally see why many unknowing business owners are getting caught by this.

Well, look.

I don’t mean to put down the industry…
Actually, quite the opposite.

There are some huge advantages to having this skill set.

If played right…
You have a unique opportunity to grow your wealth that other business owners don’t.

Once you have built a business that is sustaining itself,
Why not begin to accumulate cash-flowing assets by working on your own projects?

When I was a tradesman, I didn’t see the benefits…
Fortunately, I’m here to share what I would do differently! ☺️
