Ep. 32: Becoming a Construction Genius

Would you like to become a “Construction Genius?” Author, Eric Anderton joins me in this episode to tackle a common misconception that’s impacting construction companies today: the belief that they should accept every project opportunity.

Eric says it’s not the projects you decline that hurt your business, but the ones you accept that don’t align with your ideal client, project, and location. He’ll give us the key to success in order to help you identify your niche and aim for these components. Eric offers a practical tool to help you find your niche.

Even when you think things are challenging, Eric emphasizes focusing on your team, productivity, and expenses, particularly those tied to safety, quality, and profitability.
