This is an audio version of our Markup and Profit class on CD, cassette (while they last) or as MP3 podcasts. This class teaches business principles for contractors. It was taped in 2000 but is still applicable because business principles don’t change.
A similar class is available as streaming video online, taped in 2012. You can view sample clips and order that class here.
Do I need the book?
The CD's are a companion to the first version of the book, Markup & Profit; A Contractor's Guide. Michael frequently directs the listener to specific pages in the book. The revised book has the same information but on different pages; you can download a cross-reference here. We strongly recommend purchasing the book Markup & Profit Revisited to accompany the audio.
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.
