PROJECTS I AM WORKING ON NOW

This page is a launchpad for some of the projects I am developing, research I am conducting, and programs I am offering.  Check out the current postings below and contact me if you have any questions or have an idea for a project that will help change the way the world views the trades.

COST-PLUS CONTRACTS

In theory, cost-plus contracts are a win-win for the contractor and the owner. Answer these questions before you decide to proceed with this type of construction contract.

(Note:  THEORY and REALITY are two different things.)

Your Words Matter

Online Reviews

An online review is the new “word-of-mouth” marketing.

I would love your feedback.

Word-of-mouth marketing is only as good as the words people are using to describe you.

How have I helped you run a better construction business?
