What Is M.A.P. And How Can It Help Me And My Contracting Company?

Posted by Randal DeHart on Tue, May 06, 2014

Contractor Success M.A.P.

Most contractors are skilled technicians who learned their trade craft in an apprenticeship program taught by a Master Technician, by experience or a combination of these methods. There is a way to learn to operate your contracting company from a Master Contractor.

Over a course of time they developed a Paradigm, Mindset, Understanding, whatever word makes the most sense to you about how construction companies operate based upon their experiences.

In their experience production, getting work done is the most important part of the business because that is what they always did as an employee. 

Since all learning is based upon connecting new things to things we already understand most contractors fall into a trap of only knowing what they know and not knowing what they don't know.

Learning to own and operate a successful construction company is very similar to learning a construction trade. There are only two ways to do it. Self-taught and learning from someone who is already mastered the skill.

Self-taught means making a lot of the same mistakes over and over and it takes a long time. Learning from a master is much faster and in the end allows the student the opportunity to go beyond the teachings of the master and have an even greater success.

In the best case scenario the student becomes a master and then continues the relationship with their master as a colleagues and both people form what Napoleon Hill referred to as a Master Mind and together the two of them become even more skilled than they would if the continued working independently.

Taken to the next level more masters are invited to become a part of the Master Mind Group and the net result is the Rising Tide Raises All Ships and everyone achieves more individual wealth in money, friendships and long term lasting relationships than anyone could have possibly imagined.

Let me ask you a few questions and you decide if M.A.P. is something you may be interested in discovering more about.

Are You Experiencing Any Of These “Symptoms” In Your Company?

▪ Totally overwhelmed by construction accounting and bookkeeping

▪ Confused about how to enter transactions into QuickBooks or whatever accounting system you are using

▪ Anxious about Quarterly Payroll Tax Returns / Sales Tax Returns / Workers Comp Tax Returns

▪ Frustrated with your accountant because they do not understand how construction works

▪ Unsure about whether to hire a bookkeeper or a bookkeeping services firm

▪ Baffled by webinars for QuickBooks setup that don't apply to construction

▪ Baffled by webinars on how to setup QuickBooks for your contracting company

▪ And then How to Systematize it all into a contracting company that runs smoothly without you having to constantly make decisions and solve problems
