Yesterday the the financial world and economy took a big hit. On top of recent oil, gas, electric and cost of living increases it is hard to escape the negativity all around us. On www.ContractorTalk.com I see many comments from contractors regarding the difficulties of securing any business. Many are saying they are just hanging on. Most have never experienced a downturn in residential work like we saw in the early nineties. Work has been so plentiful up until a couple of years ago. Just returning the phone call or showing up on time with a smile and clean truck ,you were hired.
The Contractor Coaching Partnership Blog
In May my firm, The Contractor Coaching Partnership, joined The Eastern Mass NARI chapter to network with professional contractors. My goal is to help the chapter grow its contractor membership using effective best practice networking strategies. Over the summer, I have been exposing this great organization to contractors, sub-contractors, and companies who provide services to the residential construction industry. On September 10th, I was joined by several clients and guests at the monthly NARI dinner. The theme for the night was to recognize the contractors who earned their NARI certifications.
On 8/28/08 The Contractor Coaching Partnership and Sandler Training are hosting a complimentary seminar specifically designed for contractors. The seminar will be held from 3:30-5:30 PM at the Sandler Training facility on route 20 in Marlboro. The program is for remodelers, kitchen and bath companies, custom home builders, handyman, roofers, siding contractors, painters, landscapers, electricians, plumbers and small trades who service the residential home owner construction market. Sandler Trainer Joe Holm will share his cutting edge approach to blending Sandler principles with best practice systems for residential contractors.
