Too Many Contractors Are Overworked Undervalued And Underpaid

Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Apr 03, 2015

We seek to change that for as many contractors as possible in the short time we have left. Everyday good solid, hardworking, well intentioned contractors are going out of business or barely scrapping by and that has too end here and now!

Contractors like you know how to pound nails, pour concrete, build homes and commercial structures, bend pipe and pull wire, install roofs, lay carpet, paint walls and a thousand other tasks so why are you not enjoying the same standard of living as other professionals? Because you are doing all of those things for anybody and everybody who asks you too.

Working In Your Business Is A J.O.B. (Just Over Broke)

Working On Your Business Is Where Money Is Made!


What If You Could Do Both?

Work In Your Business And Have

A Higher Standard Of Living!

Lately we have been doing a lot of research on why some contractors with annual sales volumes under $500,000 a year who consistently do 4X better than other contractors of similar size and we discovered something we already knew and you probably are familiar with as well; The 80/20 Rule For Contractor Success.

Fast Easy Accounting Presents The 80 20 Rule Picture

The New Insights We Found Were Not New At All But Something We Did For Years

"Threads of Success Weaved Into The Fabric Of How They Run Their Contracting Company"

#1 Since they are running smaller contracting companies they have 1-4 employees and can manage them easily.

#2 They spend roughly 10 minutes a day looking at reports. The most important ones are the Five KPI Reports. Cash On Hand, Receivables, Payables, Profit And Loss Year To Date and Balance Sheet. However they do not spend any time agonizing over whether or not every minute of time is properly allocated to the jobs and where every penny is being allocated in the Chart of Accounts.

#3 Their employees payroll is direct deposited into the employees bank account on Friday morning by their outsourced contractors bookkeeping service.
#4 They pay bills on Friday afternoon from an Accounts Payable Report in QuickBooks. Not every time a subcontractor, employee or anyone else asks for money.
#5 They focus on getting the field work done right and on time so they can spend their free time getting rest and having fun, not being a desk jockey.
#6 When they outsource their Contractors Bookkeeping Services they are more concerned about getting what they want and not about grinding the bookkeeper down to get the lowest possible cost. Don't get me wrong they don't waste money; they just know better than trying to get $10 work done for $0.10 because it always ends badly.
#7 They visit with us on the phone or in person at least once every three months, sometimes more often, they read our articles and listen to our Contractors Success M.A.P. Podcasts.
#8 They enjoy working in the field and when they are ready to step out of the field they contact us to help them take their contracting company to the next step "Process Dependent Vs. People Dependent".
