The Markup & Profit class is designed to help contractors like you make more money. Taught by Michael Stone, author of the book "Markup & Profit; A Contractor's Guide Revisited", this class supplements the book. Michael frequently references his book throughout the class, we recommend purchasing the book with the class.
This is the same class that Michael has taught to over 6,000 contractors in 76 cities around the U.S. and Canada.
The goal of the class is to change your way of thinking from that of a mechanic into thinking like a successful businessperson in the construction industry. These 6-hours will show you the tools you need to make more money in a construction-related business. Our goal is to focus the people, policies and procedures of your company on making money instead of just making a living.
"Your seminar was the only one I have attended in 35 years where I was literally blown away. Your in-depth REALISTIC view of contracting was not only amazingly accurate, but in the span of about 7 hours I learned more about what I should be doing than my previous 10 years in the business.
Your book and seminar should be required by all who enter or aspire to enter the contracting business. If only I had been to your seminar 3 or 4 years ago, I would probably be much better off financially today."

Do I need the book?
We strongly recommend purchasing the book along with the audio. Michael makes many references to the book during the 6-hour class.
Who is the target audience?
We recommend this class for all construction-related business owners. The information pertains to all specialties as well as general contractors, whether doing remodeling or building new homes, residential or commercial. The information is also been valuable for CPA's and accountants working with construction-related businesses. The focus is on the business, not on production or building jobs.
