Job Cost Secrets Uncovered - Designers Show #21
Running a successful design/build construction business depends on you Knowing Your Numbers. You can be the greatest master builder out there, but if you don’t know how to estimate or how to mark-up your services correctly, you will be stuck forever in the world of “bank balance accounting.”

Accounting can be a mystery to many of us. And the truth is that there is a TON of competing information about how you should set up and track costs throughout a construction project. So much so that often it leads business owners like you to continue down the same path and avoid it.

My friend and colleague Bryan Kaplan from Construction Consulting is joining John and me to chat about the power in Job Costing, what it can teach you about yourself, your team, and ultimately lead you to a path of profitability. In his no-nonsense approach, he’ll discuss your first steps in the pathway to predictable profit.

Here are some questions we’ll answer: 

  • What exactly is Job Costing?
  • Why is it so important?
  • I’m already overwhelmed; how do I even start this?
  • Will it help me be profitable?
  • Do I need an MBA to understand this?

Bryan started in the business as a carpenter and learn through the school of hard knocks what it means to win at business, and what it feels like to work your tail off only to learn you did some of it for free. Join us for an engaging and humorous look at demystifying your construction business finances.

We look forward to seeing you at the show.
