The Contracting Handbook

Definition of professional

I actually had an opportunity to converse with Mike. Off the bat, I can say he is a stand up professional. I wrote this down on my yellow legal pad (thanks Mike) just to make sure I can convey what I feel I NEED to. The advice and tips he provides in The Contractors Handbook are invaluable. Mike is generous enough to provide the best information some won’t share. The Contractors Handbook gives a great outline to stay on track and be successful. There are so many factors in this complicated industry. Mike Knoche brings forward all of the aspects that professionals can easily overlook. Interviews are well spoken, thought out, and to the point. Everybody IN this industry or contemplating joining this industry has to get real, get serious, and be professional. The contractors Handbook will help everyone who listens do just that. Mike and I touched on how stressful contracting can be. Accidents, deadlines, and a pile of office work WILL happen. In episodes 25 & 26, Mike interviews health coach Vinnie Vecchio. These episodes give you the basic ingredients to be fruitful. One has to be healthy and manage stress to be able to focus on your work. Doing so will minimize unforeseen circumstances. The fight or flight response is real, very real. Dealing with people in general, this response can escalate situations rapidly. Learn to deal with that response, and you will minimize exponentially compounding and undesired situations. Me listening to Mike’s solid information and my own hard lesson, I was able to comprehend this absolute fact. Mike, I wish you a happy and healthy life. I sincerely mean that. Thank you. - Craig SFC
