We Remove Contractor's Unique Paperwork Frustrations
If You Know The Answers The Questions Will Not Bother You - In school when you sat for an exam or a test and you knew the material forwards and backwards it was fast and easy. The exams and tests for the classes you struggled with were the opposite. Having a Business Process Management Plan provided you with the answers for the questions about how to run your business because it is something you developed. Not something someone else did and handed to you.
It's Not What You Know, It's Not Who You Know That Counts, It's Who Knows You - The value you bring to your network is directly related to who will take your phone call or return your email.
Leverage - works great until the stick breaks.
Little Leaks Sink The Big Ship - Not the big gaping holes. They get addressed quickly. A bunch of little leaks can be more destructive than one big leak. Because they are easy to ignore when you have a lot of other pressing matters demanding your immediate attention.
LMOS - The four big cost buckets, Labor, Material, Other Costs and Subcontractors, used by Fast Easy Accounting to assist construction contractors in determining Job Costing, Job Profitability and Job Costing Services Reports.
Makers Vs. Takers - Makers believe it is better to make than to take; whereas Takers believe it is better to take than to make.
Money Is Made - In the office, not in the field. Strategy vs. Tactics.
Construction worker earning $15.00 an hour. With the fully burdened labor rate, including payroll taxes and other costs, it amounted to $26.04 an hour plus the cost of providing a truck which cost roughly $2.70 to haul debris to the recycle and disposal site.
- 20 hours of labor X $26.04 = $520.80
- 30 miles X $2.70 = $81.00
- Disposal cost = $200.00
- Total $801.80
If a subcontractor bid for demolition was less than $801.80 subcontract it out.
Nepotism Is Relative - Construction company owner hires and promotes his relatives who proceed to chase off qualified field technicians and office staff in an effort to level the contractor down and out of business.
O.P.M. - Other People's Money! Cash flow and bad bookkeepers are the #1 and #2 reason construction companies go out of business, bankrupt or worse. When doing a construction project do not be the banker! Invoice early and often and get change orders signed.
Our Mind - Is like a pond or a lake. It requires a fresh supply of new ideas, information and insights every day to keep it from stagnating and becoming a swamp where anything new, alive and fresh is destroyed.
