Episode #25 of Contractor Evolution is with Kim Larson of All Elements Design. Manage. Build.

Kim is truly one of our highest performing contractors in the Breakthrough Academy Program. She’s an awarding-winning luxury high-performance home builder in Kelowna, BC, Canada.

Some people have grit, some have talent. Kim is one of those rare individuals who has both and she has a story that needs to be heard.

While she enjoys success today (she’s won many awards including Best Design-Build Firm in BC, her waitlist is booked out a couple of years in advance, and she owns a massive portfolio of income-generating real estate), it wasn’t that long ago that she had to decide between feeding herself or putting gas in her car.

And that’s what I think I love most about her story of perseverance… how close she came to not being the success she is today. And I think that’s the case for a lot of people at the top of their game. Big risk equals big reward

In Today’s Episode Kim tells us:

  • Why it pays to work for free in the right circumstances
  • The big picture benefits of never compromising on quality
  • The core principles that took Kim from 1 to 10 million a year in annual revenue
  • Whether you should you hire for a role before you can afford it?
  • How do you maintain quality as you scale?
  • 2 key pieces of advice for young trades entrepreneurs
