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%.

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.

Learned to sell professionally and confidently
I was at a stage where I was ready to throw the business in and go back to working for someone else. I was tired of trying to control workers and being expected to please everyone. Also I was under way too much stress and weary from not making any money.
But when I watched one of thesuccessfulbuilder.com webinars I realized that others had benefited from business coaching. So maybe I could too.
It’s made a huge difference. I now understand my finances and I know how to price for profit. I have created business systems that enable me to be off the tools and focus on growing the business. I have grown the team from two to seven (including myself), and I am paying myself a decent salary.
But probably the biggest difference has been in me. I have learned how to sell professionally and confidently with integrity. The sales process, scripts and collateral that we developed work, and I go into sales meetings with a clear plan and purpose, feeling totally confident in the outcome.
I am really looking forward to taking the business to the next level.

No time for family and friends
Initially we were going nowhere with our business. We had no time for family and friends and decided that we needed to make a change. We first calculated our break even point so we knew what it was going to cost us to achieve our goals. This allowed us to move into marketing and determine what sort of sales and revenues we needed to achieve those goals. The marketing plan has been put in place giving us more control of our advertising budget and we are discovering more effective ways of marketing. It hasn’t been plain sailing by any means. We have done a lot of hard work and we still have a lot of hard work in front of us, But I believe that we will achieve our goals.
