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.

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%.

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.
