Let's start the new year off right! Join us for our first 2020 chapter meeting on the evening of January 15. The focus will be on How To Build A Business That Increases In Value Over Time
Back in June 2017, the chapter meeting presentation included a panel of retired remodeling business owners and contractors on their exit strategies - some sold their business, one did an ESOP (Harrell Remodeling), etc.  In many cases, the value of the business had to be assessed, but not a lot was said about how the value is calculated.  This January presentation will address business valuation so that attendees will learn how to build a business that increases in value over time while growing revenue and profits.
Two very common questions that so many contractors have and will be addressed:
  • What is the sellable value of my business?
  • What factors determine the sellable value of my business?

A very big thank you also goes to our hardworking Meta Awards MC - Jim Kabel (Case Design/Remodeling San Jose) who continues to show enthusiasm and proper acknowledgement of the remodel work of our Meta entrants. Due to time, Jim was not able to share his poem at the start of the awards segment, but it captures the spirit of the industry and Meta. How do you balance the excitement of the journey and rewards with the realities of the challenges of this type of business? See the attachment at bottom of this events page.
