3 Brutally Honest Observations After 1000+ Contractor Business Assessments

Over the last few years, I’ve conducted well over 1000 business assessments, each lasting roughly 2 hours, where I dive deep into the biggest challenges each contractor is facing.

What becomes blatantly obvious over time is that most of the issues I see come back to 3 core problems that are totally preventable.

So in this episode I’m going to lay out (or maybe rant a little) on a few key points:

  • General observations after conducting more than 1000 business assessments with contractors
  • 3 easy to avoid mistakes that 9 out of 10 contractors are making in their everyday decisions
  • The area where a company falls apart when there is no clear vision
  • Why being the ‘nice guy’ sentences you the death of a thousand cuts
  • The biggest opportunity for recruiting that is sitting right in front of contractors faces but few recognize it
  • A rant that most contractors need to hear about where they focus their efforts
