This workshop will bring clarity and implementable tools to protect your business from the oncoming recession. You can’t wait until it hits the fan — once the run-up to a recession starts it is too late! Not general advice but concrete steps and how to do them. Not magic but real business techniques proven far and wide by professionally managed businesses.

The business knowledge and adjustments needed are mostly the same moves you should make to generate exceptional profits while reducing workload and stress. The workshop includes a professional profit analysis and recession vulnerability report for your business that will show you what’s working, what’s not and what to do about it.

You will find this day of learning exciting, disturbing, challenging and energizing. This workshop will change the way you think about running and building your business. You will hear highly valuable concepts presented practically that you’ve never heard before – and when you do, you will find them solid, real and relevant. Most of all, the workshop will shine a clear light on a different business path, a path that makes business easier and more profitable in an increasingly difficult business climate. In this class you will learn:

  • To spot the top six profit leaks that affect most residential builders
  • The three critical, common, mistakes most GCs make in their job pricing strategy
  • The three things you are doing now that may seal your fate in a bad economy
  • The four types of recession and how each affects the GC business
  • How to increase your earnings without taking on more work or raising prices
  • Simple methods that will allow you to charge more and get higher quality jobs
  • Powerful, field tested, tools and techniques that let you easily differentiate your business from the competition
  • How to get out of the multiple bid wars
  • Five factors that often result in taking bad jobs you’ll later regret and how to avoid them
  • A proven path to take on fewer projects while making the same or more profit
  • The difference between reactive and targeted leads, and how to reach the right prospects at the right time for maximum sales success
  • Proven strategies to insulate your business from the coming economic downturn
  • Strategies to protect you from cost escalation
  • And you’ll receive a custom business analysis of your company along with the Aspire Roadmap and Recession Vulnerability Report – a step-by-step action plan taking all the guesswork out of moving each company toward greater success and minimizing the negative impacts of the economic downturn.
