Hey, things get a bit crazy even for the co-hosts of Home Contractors HQ. You may notice our show notes have been missing, but I’ve gone through and backfilled all the ones that were late. So, if you haven’t had a chance to review the notes from episodes 19, 20, and 21, you may have missed some great content!
Clay’s three favorite shows that can help “Train The Trainer”:
The Profit, CNBC: Marcus Lemonis helps out struggling businesses by buying a stake and improving processes, products and personnel to lead that business to success. Many of the tips we have mentioned here on Home Contractors HQ – and many more we haven’t – come to light in the show. Past seasons are available for streaming on Hulu and the current season airs on CNBC.
Your Business, MSNBC: JJ Ramberg provides practical tips of how to grow your business with industry experts as guests. Full episodes air on MSNBC on Sundays at 7:30 AM, and clips are available on their website.
Shark Tank, ABC: Some of us first heard about how to value your business through Shark Tank, and it’s quite a treat to watch huge deals go down, as well as see some others flame out quickly. Our friend Brad Baker just appeared on the show, and if you’re interested his segment is the last one of this episode.
Interview – Hope Stevenson – Dave Pomeroy Signature Training
Key points from the interview:
- First person to hire: make sure your office staff is set. When it’s time to grow, you need someone to take care of your customers. Instead of ignoring the customer who’s home you’re at to answer a call from a potential customer, help close that deal with a friendly office staff.
- ABR: Always Be Recruiting! Make up a business card to hand to someone who impresses the socks off of you out there in the world, and you would want to have working for you. Remember, hire for characteristics and train for skills!
If that didn’t light your fire…your wood must be wet!
