BUILT TO START: HOW TO ACTUALLY GET YOUR BUSINESS OFF THE GROUND
LISTEN TO THE BLOGCAST
MOST CONTRACTORS ARE NOT PROFITABLE
Are you really making a profit in your construction business?
Can you prove it?
Most of the time, when I ask that question, contractors struggle to answer.
They don’t know how to run a construction business successfully. They aren’t making a profit.
When I started my construction business, I struggled with understanding my numbers. I wasted so much time and energy trying to figure out where all my money was going. This drained my energy and took time away from the people that mattered most to me.
But you don’t have to struggle like I did.
WITHOUT A SOLID FOUNDATION, EVERYTHING EVENTUALLY FAILS
The problem is most construction business owners are constantly reacting to the day to day.
You’re putting out fires, running around town working for free, and producing estimates for customers who won’t hire you (or pay you what you’re worth).
HOW TO RUN A CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS SUCCESSFULLY WITH 3 FOUNDATIONAL SYSTEMS
Every construction business owner needs three systems to make their business permanently profitable:
System 1: You need a weekly schedule, so you can focus your time on the important things.
System 2: You need a sales framework that is repeatable and profitable.
System 3: You need a way to face your finances and take responsibility for your numbers.
Creating these systems within your business will help you make more money, stop worrying, and get your life back.
That’s why I created Built to Start in the Built to Build Academy™.
Built to Start: Building Your Foundation
The Built to Start program teaches you, the exhausted construction business owner, how to run a construction business successfully by implementing the three systems mentioned above.
You will achieve system 1 with the Effective Time Management Program.
By the end of this program, you’ll have a weekly schedule that provides you freedom and delegates the right tasks to the right people.
This new schedule is going to change your life.
You will achieve system 2 with the Paid for Planning course.
By the end of this course, you will have a repeatable, scalable script that convinces potential clients to pay you for estimates.
You’ll actually increase your revenue by doing fewer jobs when you learn how to sell your value and your process.
Profit First for Contractors
You will achieve system 3 with the Profit First for Contractors Training Program
By the end of this program, your finances will no longer be a mystery, and you’ll stop being an unpaid employee in a profitless business.
You’ll become permanently profitable.
ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO GET YOUR CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
If you’re working all the time, you’re afraid to charge for proposals, and you don’t know how to read your Profit & Loss Statement, then the Built to Start Program is for you.
You need a solid foundation for profitable growth, and the Built to Start program will teach you how to run a construction business successfully.

Without a solid foundation everything eventually fails.
The Built to Build Academy is going to teach you how to run a construction business successfully and provide you with a framework that will allow you to take your construction business to the next level. But before you start leveling up your business you need a solid foundation because you don’t want your business to eventually fail.
That’s where the Built to Start program comes in.
Don’t let the name fool you. It’s not just for start up construction companies.
The Built to Start program is for construction business owners of any size that want to stop reacting to all the day to day tasks that drain your energy and suck the life out of you. It’s for the construction business owner that is sick and tired of running around town working for free and wasting time producing estimates for potential customers that have no intention in hiring you or paying you what you’re worth. And the Built to Start program is going to make you permanently profitable.
Here’s how the program works:
You’ll have lifetime on demand access to our 3 foundational systems: Effective Time Management, Paid for Planning, and the Profit First for Contractors Training program.
When you complete the Effective Time Management program you’ll have a weekly schedule designed that will provide more freedom for you and show you exactly how to delegate tasks to others.
This new schedule is going to change your life.
When you complete the Paid for Planning course you will have a repeatable and scalable sales script that convinces your potential customers to pay you for all the estimating and planning work you’ve been giving away for free.
You’ll increase your revenue by doing fewer jobs.
It’s not when you learn to sell your value and your process.
And finally, when you complete the Profit First for Contractors Training program you’re going to make your construction business permanently profitable.
Your finances are no longer going to be a mystery and you’ll stop being an unpaid employee in a profitless business.
If you’re working all the time, if you are afraid to charge for proposals, and you don’t know how to read your profit and loss statement, then the Built to Start program is for you. Each system includes a cheat sheet for quick implementation, worksheets, and a step by step implementation guide.
You’ll also get on demand access to each of the courses through the Built to Build Academy’s Members area – an online platform so you can access the content at any time on any device.
And you’ll never lose access to the programs.
Some courses also contain bonus sections filled with live recordings, frequently asked questions, and recordings of live coaching sessions.
