Feel stuck, overwhelmed, not sure what to do/work on next? Here’s an idea

Do you ever feel stuck, overwhelmed, not sure what to do/work on next?

And then…

You have a nice talk with a friend/colleague – you talk through the challenges you’re having. They give you a little outside perspective (they see things differently because they aren’t in the middle of it) – and they’re able to give you some clarity, direction, or the little kick in the butt that you need.

And as a result…

You’re able to make a decision, focus on what’s important, and/or just get back to cranking out your work.

We all need someone from time to time to lean on and get perspective from (myself included.)

One of the things that my Remodelers Circle members receive is access to the monthly Coaching Gym. Each month, I set aside several hours for Remodelers Circle members and they can request a quick 1on1 coaching call with me.

These little chats can take you from ‘I’m not sure what to do or how to handle this’ – to having solid clarity and direction.

The topics range from something marketing or sales related to recruiting, help with setting priorities, or how to handle a difficult client.

So, if you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, not sure what to do/work on next:

1. Reach out to a friend/colleague who can help you with that. Send them a text or give them a call.

2. Look into Remodelers Circle here. The Coaching Gym and quick 1on1 coaching calls (sometimes simply pep talks!) is one of the many benefits that are included.

Hope you’re having a great week,


P.S. You know what the inspiration for this post was? I was sitting here feeling stuck, overwhelmed, not sure what to do/work on next! Reached out to a friend to chat for a few minutes and it helped ‘reset’ my mind to focus on cranking out some work… Good ‘ol fashioned practice what you preach!

Reminds me of the Remodelers Circle group starting tomorrow..

One of my new Remodelers Circle members sent this over – it’s from one of Michael Stone’s books. My client said, “Reminds me of the Remodelers Circle group starting tomorrow…”
It’s also what our free private Facebook group (located here) is about. Share, share, share – it helps others and it comes back to you as well!

Remodeler Circle Group

Depending on your mood…

Depending on the mood you’re in today, here are a few things for you:

If you just want straight business tips and information… I had a great conversation with Builder Funnel recently on ‘Perfecting Your Sales Follow-up’ – you can listen to it here.

If you’re feeling spiritual… I recording a podcast with Jayme Dill about how my faith as a Christian and her spirituality as a Buddhist, impacts our businesses and work. It was an interesting conversation – you can listen to it here.

If you’re feeling social… Over 300 remodelers are part of Remodelers Community. It’s an active group full of great questions, advice, tips, and feedback. You can join here (there’s no cost.)

Lastly, if you want to talk to me on the phone… You can request a Strategy Session this month – I have four open slots in the coming two weeks. Details and quick form here.

Or… You can click off this post and move onto something else! Whatever you choose, thank you for giving me some of your time and attention – hope you’re having a great week!

A template and an idea for you

furnace filterSomething to add to your project checklist… Look and see what size furnace filter your client uses and purchase a set of them.

Be sure to let them know you did it and after certain parts of the project – replace it for them. There’s no doubt the filter needs to be replaced much more often during the construction phase.

A little thing that shows that you care about the remodeling experience they have with you!


If you’re doing a Parade of Homes Tour or Home Show – here’s some written copy that you can edit for your business and email out to previous clients/prospects to offer free tickets.

It’s a great way to offer some value and stay in touch with previous clients/prospects:

Subject Line: Would you like tickets?

Every spring, the Remodelers Council organizes the Tour of Remodeled Homes. This year the tour consists of 19 remodeled homes (see the list here) that are opened for public viewing.

The tour takes place April 28th & 29th from 12:00-5:00 each day.

If you’re thinking of remodeling or adding a new room to your home, you’ll love this event!

We would love to provide you with two complimentary tickets to the event! To receive your tickets, simply:

1. Reply to this email letting us know you’d like them.

2. Make the first home you visit on the tour be the home we remodeled.

We’ll be there the whole weekend and have an envelope with your name on it with your tickets inside.

I would love to see you and provide the tickets for you!


P.S. If you like these ideas – don’t just be a hearer of them… Be a doer of them!
