Golden Nuggets

This podcast constantly gives contractors fresh advice that helps set you apart from the competition. I leave with a golden nugget every time I listen to Tom Reber on any given platform. Be sure to check out fight night as well!

I struggled as a GC in my first year on my own and it wasn’t until I started to listen to TCF was it that I realized I had no clue about my numbers. Where I thought we were doing well, we weren’t even breaking even. I’m now plugged in and less than 4 months later have corrected our hourly rates and better understand our overhead now to make sure that we are selling profitable successful work that is allowing us to grow and become the premium provider in our market.
