Exit Ready: Crucial Business Tools for Selling Your Construction Business
You are in business to sell it for as much money as possible at the right time. The majority of the owner/managers of construction companies, particularly trade and specialty contractors, want to retire within the next 10 years. Most have made little or no progress on developing their Exit Strategy. This book has lots of "what to do"; "how to do" and "why to do". You will learn how to sell your business for a lot more than you thought possible. There are far more sellers than buyers so you need to know how to make your business the most attractive one. You need to know how to get the best after-tax price with the least risk. Let this book take you through the process and even shows you where to find buyers. For buyers of construction companies you need to know what to look for in a business. You need to fall in love with profits not with the business. Let this book enlighten you!
Building Your Legacy: Lessons for success from the contracting community
I know I certainly would, and that is why I have written this book (and several others). It is also why I spend so much time preparing and delivering professional development programs. Certainly, I like to make money, but the real reward is knowing I made a difference.
If I can help contractors—particularly trade and specialty contractors—do better, I will have left a legacy of which I can be proud. I will have made a difference.
When I work with contractors, I want them to see beyond the money. I want them to see the business as a process for making money and creating a good lifestyle. With this focus, it is easier to build a contracting business that will be both your legacy and a legacy for your family.
You will find some informative gems within these pages; my hope is you will enjoy using them to your advantage and to the advantage of those in your sphere of influence.

Becoming Contractor of the Year
“I’m stuck. I’m tired. I never have a weekend free. I need help. I need to make the next step in this company’s evolution. I can see it. I can sense it... I don’t want to lose what I’ve started, what we accomplished and worked so hard at building.”
EBMag announced that as their “It’s Your Business” columnist I've published a new book entitled: Becoming Contractor of the Year: While making more money and having more fun. This book follows the transformation of a contractor named Dave, who went from “doing okay” to becoming Contractor of the Year.
This book is not for those looking to build themselves a job, but those wanting to build their business, because a real business can run effectively without your daily presence."
Becoming Contractor of the Year goes through the same steps undertaken by Dave, including:
• Developing the right mindset
• Analyzing your numbers
• Executing change
Also included are helpful appendices containing handy worksheets, and so much more. Becoming Contractor of the Year also explores why small businesses fail, how to tackle overhead, how to measure and manage and, ultimately, how to make more money while having more fun. After reading this book, you will have the tools you need to build your business; you will be able to lay out your blueprint and make it happen.
NOTE: Contractor Associations are encouraged to buy and promote this book for the advantage of their membership and to raise funds for their organization. This book is available at special quantity discounts to use for sales promotions, employee premiums or educational purposes. A 40% price discount is offered on quantities of 100 or more.
