On this radio segment for WMAP in Long Island, New York (my old stomping grounds) I outline for host Brendan the basics of The 7-Power Contractor approach including planning power, operating power, financial power, sales power, marketing power, staffing power and sales coaching power.
On Episode 159 of the Escape 9 to 5 Podcast, host and entrepreneur Ali Salman and I discuss how contractors can run their business with less stress and more success. I also describe how thorough planning enabled me to escape the 9 to 5 (which actually was more like 7 to 7) and create success and the lifestyle I desired as a business consultant to contractors.
On Episode 429 of Business Insanity Talk Radio, host (and small business expert) Barry Moltz and I discuss the Big Idea behind The 7-Power Contractor approach, which is "Gain power over your business or your business will have power over you!"
We also covered what prevent owners from setting up processes so their businesses can run without them, where to start, and how the 7-Power concepts can help.
In Episode 099 of Strongpreneur Nation host Tom Reber and Al discuss "The 7-Power Approach to Re-Engineering Your Business," including why it is critical to get the core 80 percent (not 100 percent!) of what goes on in your company 80 percent of the time documented in Operating Manuals, the importance of the triangle of communications between CSR to the Dispatcher to the Tech, and much, much more.
In Toolbox Talk Episode TSS113The Site Shed host Matt Jones invited Ellen Rohr and I to respond to a question from listener Anthony from Plan B Plumbing in Melbourne, Australia who wanted to know: "When is the right time to expand a contracting business? When you have the work, or in the planning stage?" Insight and hilarity ensues. Have a listen.
