In this second installment of my talk with Kat Willer we talk about the importance of good communication, woman in the trades, and women owned general contractors. There's a story about sticking to her guns with a contract. Dealing with men as a female contractor. Did you know that only 3% of general contractors in the US are women owned? And only 1.5% of the construction work force are women? Here, we discuss the reasons behind that phenomenon, the women we have hired (the only ones that applied), and much more. It's the elephant in the room and we take a good picture of it!
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. Contact Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions, comments, or to be interviewed.
