The Aspire Institute hosts “Where Does Profit Really Come From?” a one-day advanced business training in Reno NV May 23rd

Leading building-industry business coach and educator, The Aspire Institute, will present a one-day, advanced business practices workshop for professional remodelers and custom home builders on May 23rd in Reno, Nevada. “Where Does Profit Really Come From?” is the only workshop of its kind, helping professional builders shape their business models to maximize profits without raising prices or increasing revenue and without cutting expenses.

The workshop will address key areas in the professional builder’s business including how different business models affect profitability, differentiating from the competition, attracting the right customers in the digital age as well as finding, hiring and keeping top employees in a challenging hiring market.

“I designed this class to explore how simple, small changes in a contractor’s business model can make a substantial difference in how easily profits flow,” said Aspire Institute founder and CEO, Ken Brookings.

After attending the workshop, Andy Steinborn, co-owner of Tajo-One, said, “The program is eye opening if you have a building, remodeling or construction business. The presenters were excellent and on the money. The analysis was right on and the information was excellent and gets you to look at your operation from a different point of view.

The workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Reno Nevada on May 23rd from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. The normal price is $295 per company, covering all owners, spouses and senior managers.
