Construction is a tough business. It can make you rich. And it can drive you into the ground. You can be successful in your own construction business, if you do things the right way.
1. You need to be really good at whatever it is you do.
Forget about starting your own business until you have mastered your craft.
2. You need to be organized.
You need to have a system for creating job bids that accurately reflect what it will cost you to complete the work (with some profit on top). And you must have a way to track all of your costs against the items in your bid.
3. You need to be professional.
If you want to grow your business, people need to respect you and like you. You need to deliver high quality results on time and on budget. And if on time, on budget isn’t going to happen, you need to know how to deal with it.
