After many months of waiting, the blog is finally going live. Hurray!!!
For those of you who’ve been receiving the newsletter – thank you for your support.
I’ve been humbled by the super positive feedback you’ve sent in and the microscopic number of people who have stopped the newsletter. Apparently, the newsletter has been a hit.
Our blog, and I do mean OUR, is to serve a completely separate purpose.
The newsletter’s goal is to spread actionable solutions for common contractor business problems. It is also meant to inspire contractors to build real businesses and give them the confidence they need to step out of their comfort zone.
The goal of this FRC blog is to stimulate a conversation between you, me, and the rest of the readership.
It will be the place to post questions from readers who would like to hear everyone else’s opinion and advice. It will be the place where I throw out things for you to think about. It will be the place to tip each other off to new trends and developments you need to be staying on top of and taking advantage of. It will be the place where guest writers will share their thoughts and advice with you.
It will be the place where I ask your guidance on:
- Future newsletter and report topics.
- Content for books, videos, seminars, etc.
- Additional service offerings
We will have surveys and share the results. We will share great jokes. We will share great successes and tragic failures.
The one thing readers won’t be doing is dogging on each other. Not gonna be allowed.
I am the moderator of this blog. Dog me and my advice all you want. I’m a big boy, can take the criticism, and am here to serve you.
But, one contractor dogging another contractor will not be tolerated. Treat each other with respect.
I encourage you to bookmark this page so that you don’t have to go through the home page to get here.
We will (or do) have a sign-up list for the blog that is separate from the newsletters. That way I can notify you about new blog posts. We may already have this feature, I’m kind of like Alice in Wonderland with this blog. It isn’t helping any that Kelly Olcott and I are recovering from a night hanging with paving contractors at their annual show.
Love to hear your feedback on the newsletters and get your opinions on what we should do with this blog.
Leave a reply and introduce yourself so everyone can get to know each other.
Good luck with your business and have a great day.
