With everything in the news the last few days… 

How about a brief break from that for something fun and helpful?!

Remodelers Community VAULT is here! 

This is something Bailey and I (Bailey, mostly – thanks Bailey!) have been working on putting together for you. 

As you can hear in the video – it’s a free resource for you to access templates/tools/resources that will help you and your remodeling business.

There are 40+ resources in there and we’re just getting started. You can see the titles of the resources we’ve added so far here.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this free and valuable resource for our Remodelers Community!

If you have a resource you’d like to contribute, please submit it here. 

Enjoy and we hope you like it!

Coming Soon: Remodelers Community VAULT

I have been working on something new and exclusive for the Remodelers Community (this is a free private Facebook group for remodelers – you can join it here!) – the Remodelers Community Vault!

One of the wonderful things about Remodelers Community is that everyone is so willing to help each other and share their resources, templates, checklists, etc.

We are creating a bank (at no cost / free of charge!) of these resources so they’re easy to access for the members of the group. We’ve started by adding in resources I’ve created but we want to fill this thing to the brim with tools created by remodelers for remodelers.

If you’re not a member of Remodelers Community – join today!

It’s a free, private Facebook group that I run with over 700 incredible remodelers who are willing to offer advice, encouragement, and resources to their fellow remodelers. 

We are currently collecting resources and will be launching Remodelers Vault on February 12th!

P.S. Have you created a template/checklist that you think would be helpful to your fellow remodelers? We want to hear about it!

If you have a tool to help with the sales process, marketing, financials, work/life balance, managing your team, estimating/design, etc. that you’d be willing to share – please take a minute and submit it here.

14 Things About This Fun Photo

14 things about this photo that is helpful for you to be thinking about:

1. That’s Andy with the beard. I know Andy because a mutual colleague of ours went out of his way to introduce us. We have become good friends and see each other in-person (here in Michigan) regularly. Be a connector – I appreciate that colleague more because he took the time to introduce someone to me that has positively impacted my life (and business.) Who do you know that you can connect today?

2. That’s Bailey at the bottom of the image. My Marketing Director – I finally stepped up to the plate and HIRED someone this year. Yes, I’ve had help here and there over my 12 years in business, but never an employee. It’s been an investment of time and money, but one that’s paying off in a big way. Do you need to make a similar investment with a position in your business?

3. We’re meeting via Zoom. Have you ever considered meeting with a client in this way? What if you could show your design changes or proposal changes via Zoom – saving them (and you) drive time, making the process more convenient, and reducing the ‘cycle time’ (the time it takes for you to take a prospect from the start of the process to contract signing?)

4. I would not have Remodelers AutoPilot (http://www.RemodelersAutoPilot.com) implemented and successful without Andy. Hiring an expert who can bring unique skills and hold you accountable is incredibly valuable.

5. We’re working ON the business in this meeting. Just a reminder – make sure you’re carving out to time to work ON not just IN the business.

6. What we were meeting about is our plan for the next three weeks to promote the course that’s launching on January 9, 2020. Are you signed up for it yet? Details here: http://www.RemodelYourMarketingPlan.com

7. Document the process! We overthink content – I said, “Hey guys, smile!” and I took a screenshot. Take photos/quick ‘behind the scenes’ videos of your projects and share what’s going on in that photo. Document the process! It makes for great content – more ideas on this podcast episode: http://remodelersontherise.com/imagine-this

8. What gets measured, gets improved. I’m holding up a little sheet that has 1-20 listed with 1-10 crossed off (because 10 of the 20 slots for the Remodel Your Marketing Plan course are filled.) Having that visual goal and sheet in front of me keeps me focused and gives me a goal to aim for. What is something that you need to be measuring in your business?

9. I decided to work from home yesterday vs. go into the office. The change of scene led to a very productive day. Don’t be afraid of changing where you work to mix things up.

10. Are you a lone wolf? Reach out to people – find your community – get some outside help/perspective. It’s important and it helps in a big way.

11. If you’re reading this far – keep in mind – numbering things out in content you create is effective. It makes the reader want to keep reading and breaks the content up 🙂

12. We don’t know what 2020 is going to bring. It’s an election year. Is the economy going to cool off? What’s going to happen? None of us know, but I do know that getting your marketing plan organized and implemented is important no matter what the year brings. Be sure to consider the course I’m offering 🙂 http://www.RemodelYourMarketingPlan.com

13. Bailey is my employee – it is my job to make Remodel Your Marketing an enjoyable place for her to work, to train her well, to make sure she’s clear with what she’s responsible for, to challenge her and help her grow in her skills. Likewise, that’s your job with your team. Invest time and energy towards that!

14. Lastly, THANK YOU for consuming my content. If you learn something from what I share/teach – the best way you can thank me is to DO SOMETHING WITH IT and IMPLEMENT.

Comment below with the number (1-14) that jumped out at you the most

Strategy

I had this conversation on a call today

Kyle: “Alright – next thing I wanted to talk about is 

A discussion of your 2020 Business Strategy:

I want us to get clear with your 2020 business goals

Along with other questions – let’s discuss:

Do you want to grow/stay-the-same?

More employees or not? Any changes to your staff?

Let’s discuss your Marketing and your Sales Process…

So put it out there – what comes to your mind as you envision your remodeling business in 2020.”

There was a nice “pregnant pause” (<— I don’t think I’ve ever typed out that phrase before)

And what ensued was a great brainstorm on conversation with the remodeler on what they want to accomplish this upcoming year.

I could see the energy/excitement grow as we discussed things back and forth.

And from the notes that I took

We have a high-level outline of what he wants to accomplish

That we can now break down into quarterly goals

Along with a set of S.M.A.R.T. goals to execute.

It’s time for YOU to start thinking about these questions

Start writing some thoughts/ideas out sometime this week

And cast a vision for your upcoming year.
