There are ample Q&A opportunities, where you can receive input from Michael as well as others in the class on specific issues concerning your business.
“It was a pleasure to take your class, eye opening and informative. It did not escape me that veteran contractors and repeat attendees were in the audience with us. To reach new entrants as well as those well entrenched in the market speaks highly for the quality and usefulness of your service.”
The class is two full days of thoughtful analysis, hard work and great lunches. Whether you’re a general or specialty contractor working in remodeling, new construction or commercial work, this two-day, hands-on workshop applies to all construction-related businesses.
