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.

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.

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.
