Through my extensive experience in the home service industry – running a contracting business, producing a podcast for contractors, managing a contractor community group, and working with other contractors in general – I realized there are certain problems at various company sizes. In this episode, we’re focusing on businesses that are around the 900k to 1m per year revenue or what I like to call the key man operations. Key man operations are ones where the owner or owner figure mainly runs the business.

Hit play to learn what these problems are and the solutions to each one of them.
