All companies have pain points. What’s yours?

Time Management

From scheduling and project management to finding time to do the business side of running your own business. How do you fit it all in and still have a life outside of work?

 Finding Your Niche

Don’t stretch yourself thin by trying to all things for all customers.  Know your competitive advantage and clearly communicate it to your customers and prospects.

Customers

Sometimes managing the customer’s expectations is the most difficult part of the project. Then when it’s over, how do you ensure that you get paid?

Employees

Finding, keeping, motivating, and staying on task. Do you find yourself doing more because you know you can do it better and without the hassle?

The Unexpected

Disasters, either man-made or natural, will happen. How can you be prepared for the inevitable and unpredictable?

Growth Management

When should you add more employees? When should you buy more equipment? Or perhaps it makes sense to outsource instead

Pricing

How do you price for profitability yet stay competitive?

Vendors

Find the best fit and accept nothing short of your expectations. Form strategic partnerships with responsive vendors and build lasting relationships that add to your bottom line.

Avoiding Burn Out

How do you get back to the pleasure of the craft that got you started in this business in the first place? Get an inside look at how some of the top woodworking shops are continually growing and making significant profits.
