Join a group of contractors of a similar size, in the same trade but in a different geographical location. The purpose is to help each member grow and become more profitable.
There are 6 to 8 members in each group. It’s important to keep them small so that everyone has some input. The group meets once a year at one of the members’ locations, and then monthly online.
Before the first meeting, we will help each contractor develop a plan called a Business Action Plan.
This will be your road map laid out step by step of how you will achieve your own goals. We found, one-for-one, that contractors prepare far better plans on how to run a job than they do on how to run their business and attain their goals.
Over the last 20 years of running a landscape design-build company, we have gone down a lot of dead-end roads, driven off some very steep cliffs, but somehow, we ended up on our feet with some very valuable systems ready for you to use. While doing your Business Action Plan, we will introduce you to some of these systems to see if they fit.The Business Action Plan costs $495 (one-time fee), the annual meeting is $1500 and the monthly online meetings are $100. The total annual cost is only $2,700. Membership gives you unlimited access to all the courses and systems we have on our website.
Every contractor has his goal of where he wants to go and by when. This will be determined in his Business Action Plan, which becomes a very valuable document. It will change and get updated as one progresses, but every Peer Group Meeting, whether online or in person, is designed to help him move a step closer to his goal.
At the meetings, each contractor commits to doing one or more steps in his program and reports on his progress from the last meeting.
There will be problems and issues that arise in doing this and other contractors can share how they approached and solved similar issues.
New goals are set by each contractor for the next meeting.
At the end we will spend time reviewing actions that you can do as an OWNER. I have found that if an owner has an opportunity to define an issue, discuss it and look at options on how to handle it with other owners, the solution usually becomes very apparent.
Each contractor must be willing to share his financials with the other members. All the data is confidential. Sharing financial data gives each contractor an opportunity to see how other contractors are faring and is one of the most rewarding aspects of the program.
This is a great opportunity to meet other contractors that you can share ideas with, in or outside of the meetings.
One of the most powerful tools – Peer Groups!
