Fresh approach to sales
Recently we were preparing and presenting many bids, but not converting many of these into sales. The Successful Builder helped us learn a fresh approach to our sales process and we are now placing greater emphasis on identifying more clearly the needs of our clients and being with them when they make their final buying decision. Our conversion rate was 1 in 8, but I expect it to rise to 1 in 4...doubling my income.

Personal goals becoming a reality
I have been working in the building industry since I was a teenager. I have always worked hard and had specific long term goals for myself and my family. The work kept trickling in but my business was not growing, despite working long hours, and success in achieving my personal goals seemed further and further away.
Enlisting Graeme Owen as my business coach really turned things around. I have learnt about sales processes, marketing, how to organise and monitor my finances to name a few. My business has grown and I am now off the tools. We are a team of 7 and I now focus on working with clients, running team leaders and growing the business*. We are finally making a steady income and our personal goals are starting to become a reality.

The Builders Business Coach helped us with business planning, systems and strategies, identifying key actions, organising and reporting. Our renovations and maintenance divisions are run almost entirely by capable managers and we are now focused on building a serious construction business. Our original dream was to grow a business large enough to get us off the tools. This happened long ago.

Starting to understand what it’s like to have a business working for me
I had a good business running a team of four and working part-time on the tools myself. Although I was busy I knew that I was not at my full potential and that to reach it I needed to invest in learning more about working with staff and leading teams. I also wanted to improve the business systems. So I started working with the Successful Builder Coaching program.
It's taken time and effort but in 9 months I have grown in my understanding and built the team up to 8 builders (and growing) and a part-time administrator. Also I am about to install a project manager*.
As a result I am now starting to understand what it feels like to have a business that will work for me while I take time away to spend with the family.
