I’ve been in electrical contractor for years and figured out my own system and that seems to work but since I’ve stumbled across Mike’s podcast I’ve had a lot of eye-opening that makes sense moments. Totally started incorporating some of the advice on handling clients and their expectations. Interviews are also awesome it’s cool to get opinions from contractors all around the world and see how they do it and the challenges that they face.
I started listening to this one on a whim. Mike has a down to earth, straight shooting approach. The anecdotes and lessons apply to any small business owner, not just contractors!
Mike’s podcast is great - each episode packs a lot of information into a little bit of time, and the advice is solid. It’s beef jerky: there’s always plenty to chew on, it’s high-value, tasty, and goes down easy. Good show & great information.
I’m a small time contractor in Northern California. I started my business a year and a half ago but due to COVID just got my license this year.. I just want to say thank you so much for this podcast and what your doing. I don’t have that mentor on the business side and this has been amazing. The what and what not to do on cold calls, first meetings. Thank you thank you
I’ve got to give you a shoutout, your podcast could not have come at a better time for me. I’m struggling hard with whether I should go out in my own or not. Almost too much side work for me to handle while working a W-2. Anyhow, I was a follower of Sean Francis on Instagram, and found you through him being on the show. Looking forward to the future podcasts, keep up the great content man!
Mike does a great job of providing clear, practical advice! I especially liked his tips for recognizing and turning down non-ideal clients. It's so important for contractors to understand this!
I started my business July 2020. I am an electrical contractor. Did my time in the trade and made a head first leap into the world of running your own business. This podcast speaks to me directly I feel. I love the conversational tone. We learn so much through conversation and Mike has provided just that brilliantly. As trades men and women we appreciate straight talk and getting to the point. Keep bumping into that mic filter Mike! We are all still listening!
I love the content Mike is putting out there. The stuff about defining your business, client cold calls, and site visits are all things we never talk to each other about as contractors. So far the show really resonates with me and I keep finding myself writing down tips so I don’t forget them. The interviews are great. Clearly unedited, raw, real conversations between contractors on relevant topics. Thanks, please keep it up!
I’ve been listening to the podcast and love hearing the different perspectives and pointers from other tradesmen. Mike has a massive career in home building to draw on his experience from and bringing in other contractors from all over the world makes this podcast my go to when driving during my busy day.
I really liked the cold call two podcast. Everything you talked about is so true. So many tire kickers. So many people that want a $number right away. I never say anything until I have measured and gone home and sat on it for a few days. Thanks mike. Keep up the good work.
Mike is the man. Contractors, tradesmen, business people, listen up! Excellent voice from an underrepresented part of the business world.
