Overview

This book is full of my personal successes and failures as a contractor and construction worker. It's been a long journey and I'm sure there's more lessons to learn in the future. I'm sharing some of the ones I've already experienced, in hopes that you will learn to profit from them.

Why should you have to repeat the same mistakes I made? 25 years ago, I would've paid $500 for the information inside this book. Heck, I probably would've paid $1000 for the information inside this book. You don't need to learn the hard way, if you know what I mean.

When I first started, I had problems dealing with my clients and other construction workers. After that, I had problems getting paid on time or getting paid period. Then I had to deal with the ultimate problem, either too much or not enough work. The challenges were often over whelming.

I had to make a change and that change led me to learn more about construction, business and psychology. The more I learned, the easier my job became and this motivated me to start learning about other things, which made my job even easier.

I was your average student in school who started his construction business at 25 years old, with less than $1000 in the bank. If you're struggling and having problems with your construction business, this small investment could change your entire life.
