A Business Must

If you’re a home inspector and have your own company, you owe it to yourself to have a listen. Kevin does a great job moderating the discussions to cover business basics, industry trends, and just plain fun topics. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a solo inspector or have 20 inspectors, this will be worth your while.
