    #56: Financial Stimulus Options for Builders with Sheri Allshouse

    #56: Financial Stimulus Options for Builders with Sheri Allshouse

    If you are hearing a lot of conflicting and confusing info about how the stimulus package affects builders, well, I am too. That’s why I called Sheri Allshouse, our go-to expert on all home building finance matters.


    In this brief episode, Sheri covers the two primary loans that are available as well as the new tax credits. Please note the information surrounding these loans is very dynamic and changing frequently. Please consult your accountant for the latest information.


    I also highly recommend you navigate our to Sheri’s website, The Allshouse Group (https://www.allshousegrp.com/contact/) , to request from them their white paper on the topic. It’s filled with a lot of good, actionable info.


    Be well, amigos.

    #54: Your Wages AREN'T Your Profits!

    #54: Your Wages AREN'T Your Profits!

    If you aren’t separating your wages from your profits, you’re losing money and fooling yourself along the way. This was a conversation I began with Bryan Uhler, second generation builder at Pioneer Builders, Inc (http://www.pioneerbuildersonline.com/) , a company his father started 42 years ago.


    We decided to record the conversation and share it as an episode. Many of you already know this, but it never hurts as a refresher. And for some of you it will be a much-needed splash of cold water.


    We are in these building trenches together, so listen, learn, and implement. Enjoy the episode!


    And last but not least, a special thanks to Treacy Duerfeldt of Doug Lynch (https://douglaslynch.com/) , my insurance pros and today’s sponsors!

Great insight for Builders

Podcast is great. I’ve been looking for something like this and believe Jared is doing a great job. I love how he brings in all aspects of the process - financing, client relationship, construction, business, etc. and the different experts that come on and share their knowledge. He shares his own experience as well as asking for the experiences of his guests. Keep up the good work!
