Brittany Farrow talks burnout, running a crew, and her generation!

In the second installment of interview with Brittany Farrow, Mike Knoche asks her to talk about burning out. The question comes up because the first time they attempted to talk on the phone, she was tired and stressed. She has a strategy but still burns the candle at both ends. Her biggest struggle running her business outside of sexism and's running the crew. Not being buddy-buddy, sensitivity, and, then, Mike shows his true colors about his frustration with employees. Having a partner has it's benefits! He does the books, payroll, and the office side so she can focus on the work. The Job Site Speed Round reveals what Brittany appreciates most. Then she runs through her vision for the future of her business. She's positive and a go getter

Mike Knoche has been running his general contracting business for 16 years. It's been trial by fire and in The Contracting Handbook, Mike shares his successes, his failures and asks other industry leaders to join him in a discussion of how to run a construction business! The Contracting Handbook podcast discusses the behind the scenes running of a small construction company. It’s everything from starting up, working with employees, subcontractors, and clients. Remember, it won’t just be Mike’s perspective as he will talk to contractors from all over the world about theirs too! Why the world over? 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. We a are a global community of builders!
