Aron Jones of Big Dog Construction out of Grand Manan, New Brunswick (Part 2)

Aron Jones of Big Dog Construction out of Grand Manan, New Brunswick (Part 2)

In the second half of the interview, Mike and Aron talk about the importance of relationships with trade partners, trusting your gut with clients, quality vs. number of employees, the cost of labor and warranties when things go sideways, and a lot more. This episode gets a bit more personal and less like an interview. These guys are going to be fast friends!


The Contracting Handbook podcast discusses the behind the scenes running of a small contracting company. Your host, Mike Knoche, has been running his small contracting company for 16 years. Here he shares what worked for him, mistakes he made along the way, and his “aha” moments. It’s everything from starting up, working with employees, subcontractors, and client. He’ll get into proposals, contracts, marketing and much more. It won’t just be Mike’s perspective as he will talk to contractors from all over  the world of any variety of size and structure because through his travels in the off season he’s come to see that contractors everywhere have similar business needs, struggles, and ideas in common.
