Thank you, Michael. Your information and knowledge of this industry is so helpful to a new business owner. Keep up the great work and keep fighting for us to stay in business.

Thanks again, Michael! Your books have helped me so much (and a couple employees that now have gone out on their own). With a quick calculation following your advice (and not even remotely as much as I should), have probably increased my total revenue over the past 7 years by $500K. Received the latest book last week and read through half of it that night. I’ve been working on 4 bathroom remodel estimates this afternoon, and realized after 15 years, I’m still unfortunately WAG’ing and SWAG’ing on too many areas. Just as your book says, it always comes down to trying to be quick, or getting lazy, or being scared by the final number’s size. We’ve probably all gotten a bit comfortable from the work volume in the past few years, but now is the time to take all your books and advice seriously while we still have a little time before the economy tightens up. Thanks again!!

Michael has been a great resource for my company and it’s bottom line. His books taught me how to run my construction remodeling business successfully and with a profit. The Fast Track Proposal Writer software has been especially helpful on writing professional Agreements for my clients and spell out everything in detail. This new book “Estimating Construction Profitably” is reminding me to double check my numbers, use an Estimating software system such as Fast Track Estimating, and do not worry what the estimate comes in at. THE NUMBERS DON’T LIE! Thank you Michael and Devon for being there for us for over 20 years now. All of your books are GREAT!

Michael Stone is a an insightful and wise teacher. His willingness to share his wealth of knowledge regarding profitabilty in construction is highly commendable. I read “Markup and Profit” in the early 2000’s and it changed the the way I looked at the business and administrative components of running a construction business. It increased my bottom line. I have found this volume to be just as enlightening. Thank You Michael.
