SOPs For Overwhelmed Owners
Productivity • 1h 37m
Contractors, can we make a confession?
The busy season in our industry is a storm.
🌪 Clients complain constantly
🌪 Crews are understaffed (and lean on you for everything)
🌪 And all the while, your margins give you migraines
You know that SOME contractors find a way to conquer their busy season.
They finish projects faster.
They predictably increase net profit.
They get great staff, subs, and clients — and keep them happy (without becoming a pushover).
But you don't know how to get out of this annual cycle of chaos....
The solution for contractors Patrick Readyhough and Dustin Finley was to stop charging through the busy season like a bull in a china shop. Instead, they added structure to their businesses by intentionally developing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and overcoming their biggest headaches.
Watch the "show-and-tell" walkthrough of their SOPS and what their businesses look like now.
BONUS: You’ll get access to a FREE resource package that includes some of their example SOPs plus some of Breakthrough Academy’s most used SOP templates.
