Are you trapped in The Craftsman Cycle®?

The Craftsman Cycle® is a common trap for business owners, one that starts slowly and gains momentum over time. It can be all-consuming, pulling you away from the important work of building and growing your business. Instead of being able to focus on the big picture, you find yourself bogged down in day-to-day tasks and unable to take your business to the next level. But with the right guidance and support, it’s possible to break free from this cycle and achieve long-term success. (See The Craftsman Cycle® diagram.)

You’re trapped if…

  • You’re busy. You’re booked for several months, but you don’t have any money.
  • You don’t pay yourself a salary.
  • You provide a lot of free work.
  • You’re guessing at your price instead of calculating your value.
  • You fear saying “no” to projects.
  • You’re always behind schedule.
  • You don’t understand the difference between markup & margin.
  • You don’t know how to read your Profit & Loss Statement.
  • Paying your taxes is a mystery.
  • Cash is tight.

Step 3 – Pricing Strategies

Develop confidence in your numbers.

We take a deep-dive into analyzing your Profit and Loss statement to ensure you are pricing your work to produce a profit. By the end of this lesson, you’ll know exactly what you need to charge to produce a profit and determine the areas in your construction business that need adjustments.

We will review the 5 Foundational Accounts including their individual purposes and nuances, and how each account serves your business. You’ll also learn about the additional accounts you may need and how they work in the Profit First for Contractors system.

Why Does Profit First for Contractors Work?

The Profit First for Contractors system works because it marries how you make operating decisions in your construction business with proven financial strategies to guarantee profits.

Financial statements don’t tell you the whole story. Your bank accounts do.

Without Profit First for Contractors in place, you check the bank account and spend money if you have some. If there’s no money in the bank account, you stress out, cut back, and try to survive.

With Profit First for Contractors in place, you know exactly where all the money is in your business and where it’s going.

Your construction business thrives.
