Are you simply sick looking back at the wreckage left in the wake of the housing bubble’s burst or are you determined to look forward toward accelerating your construction business? We offer you the tools and tricks to save time and money while actually growing your construction business in 2015.

Construction workers (and building owners!) use social networks too

You may enjoy that the construction business lets you spend your day outside in jeans rather than stuck in a suit behind a desk, but the majority of your potential customers, whether new homeowners or those expanding their industrial properties, fall into the latter group. And they use LinkedIn as a way to find new service providers, so you need to make sure your LinkedIn Profile and LinkedIn Business Profile are up to the challenge!

            I’ve operated a local convenience store for almost seven years, never taking off more than an occasional weekend or holiday. Every time I plan a vacation, something comes up. How do I break this pattern before I burn out?

How I can help you

After completion of a BS in Chemistry degree I was engaged for four years in product development of high strength glass ceramic products.  The following fourteen years of my career were in Operations Management (operations, quality, finance and engineering) in a high volume manufacturing environment.  I have been a consultant and trainer to over 200 organizations in a wide variety of industries since 1982, the last twenty five years of which were as Founder and President of my own firm of ten professionals.  Our clients were typically medium to small organizations although we also worked with Fortune 500 companies.

How I can help you

I like mentoring clients who want to startup a new venture or grow and expand their current business. Being exposed for many years to managing and running the various engineering projects, gave me an opportunity to grasp the details of how to perform the daily work tasks properly and bring the projects to successful completion.

I am happy to help clients in the long and short-term planning and managing their business, as well as resolving, if applicable, some challenges related to mechanical/electrical engineering and construction aspects of the business ventures.

Based on my experience of running the small engineering firm for 10 years, I am also happy to share the intricacies of marketing techniques that had proved to be successful in the small business environment.
