The Oregon Remodelers Association Teams with the Aspire Institute
to host Advanced Business Practices Workshop

 “Where Does Profit Really Come From?” a one-day advanced business training in Portland, OR September 12th

Leading building-industry business coach and educator, The Aspire Institute, has teamed with the Oregon Remodelers Association to present a one-day, advanced business practices workshop for residential general contractors on September 12th in Portland, Oregon. “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, Ken Brookings.

After attending the workshop, Shawn Anderson, co-owner of Monarch Custom Homes and First Vice President of the North Idaho Building Contractors Association, said, “They gave us a lot of information that helped solve questions that my husband and I have been asking ourselves for years. It helped us step back and pay attention to the important part of the business that none of us take the time to pay attention to. It was invaluable.”

The workshop will be held at the Crowne Plaza Portland Lake Oswego Hotel, in Portland, Oregon on September 12th from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. The normal price is $295 per company, covering all owners, spouses and senior managers. On behalf of the Oregon Remodelers Association (ORA), a limited number of scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. ORA members receive special $145 pricing.
