Less than 6 months to Revenue of $1.5m
When I started out with The Successful Builder I was in debt, working long hours and spending very little time together with my wife. I was being run around by everyone, suffering stress and earning very little. The Build your Building Business program helped me focus on important tasks and ensured I stayed on track to building my business. The going was tough and I was tempted to give up many times, but the coaching helped me stick with it. Now less than six months into the program revenue has increased to almost $1.5m (annualised), I have enough work to employ four builders, and I am almost fully off the tools. But best of all I am now paying myself a decent salary. I am well on the way to reaching my first business milestone.

From $350k to $1.5m in just over one year
When I started my own building business I was working on the tools. I wanted to build a large business but knew I couldn’t do so without employing people. I needed to learn how to recruit staff, how to market to great customers and how to price and sell effectively, I really needed to master the basics of business.
Now just 13 months later the business has grown to one and a half million and I am off the tools (well - most of the time). My team has grown to 9 and includes a project manager an office manager and a contract QS. I am focused on selling and growing the business to the next level.
Recently I took my family on holiday for 10 days - and the business continued to run without me - smoothly!

My Home Building Business Had Stagnated
My home building business had stagnated and I found myself buried in endless paperwork with difficulty commanding the profit margins necessary to create the cash flow and revenues I wanted.
I knew there were a lot of things I needed to do to improve my business but just never found myself getting around to it. I wanted to hire a coach that could hold me accountable and provide me with the right ideas and expertise to push me in the right direction and help me set and accomplish my goals.
I found The Successful Builder and have now been working with Graeme for about 2 months and can honestly say that I'm seeing a difference already. I've been more focused on working on my business rather than just in my business. Together we've worked on creating some new marketing strategies, a culture statement and have discussed my current and future employee needs and duties.
Although we are in the early stages I feel that the accountability of our weekly meetings is keeping my on track to end the year strongly and have a successful and prosperous 2018. It has truly been a pleasure to work with my new friend Graeme at The Successful Builder.

Average Sale increased 44% in 3 months
When we first started with The Builders Business Coach our major threat was lack of work. We had never experienced such a down-turn in the market. Within three months our average sale had increased by 44%, productivity by 6% and profits by 19%.
