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.

Revenue from $900k to $3m
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.

Revenue has increased 1197%
When we first started with The Builder Business Coach we had a team of 3. I was only 22yrs young and knew little about business. Graeme has taught me in-depth knowledge of sales, marketing, recruitment, finances, and operational systems. In 2009 our annual revenue was $167k. Three years later our revenue has increased 1197%, to over $2m*. We now have a team of 15 and are still growing. All this during the recession where many builders are sitting around at home waiting for the phone to ring. Success didn't happen overnight, but The Builder Business Coach had the knowledge and experience to turn our company around.

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%.
