Are you a Dreamer with Ideas or a Visionary with Traction? - with Luke Hansen

Luke is the founder and CEO of a CompanyCam, our favourite photo storage and site management app. Company Cam is purpose-built for contractors – it’s an intuitive platform to help you snap, store, sync and share photos of your jobs so that you, the owner, can better understand what’s happening on site. No, I’m not getting paid to say this, I just really believe in what Luke and his team are doing.

In this week’s episode of Contractor Evolution I sat down with a guest we’ve been trying to pin down for awhile, Luke Hansen.

It’s so much easier to empower your crews to make decisions and drive production without having to get in your truck and go out and see them if you have great photo management. Plus, it covers your butt if anything goes to the lawyers.

Luke in particular is one of my favourite CEOs in the contracting space. Not only because his product rocks but because he has a really unique perspective on life and business.

It’s important to mention that before building a software and pitching venture capitalists, Luke was a roofer working for his family business White Castle Roofing so he understands the lived experience of the contractor because that was him not that long ago.

In this episode with Luke Hansen we unpack:

  • The problem Luke saw in his own business that led to the creation of CompanyCam
  • How photo sharing empowers your staff and requires far less of the owner’s time
  • The 3 traits that separate a dreamer from a visionary with traction
  • When it’s ok to look stupid in front of your peers
  • How to know when it’s time to delegate and elevate tasks as a leader
  • Why perfection can easily be an enemy of something good
