The Productive Bee 200wToday on Remodeling Business Blueprint we’re going to talk about the secrets that make the production process – just work. Recently I had a conversation with a remodeler about project management, going over all the key points that make handling a project both easy and lucrative. Later that day I was commenting to my wife about the conversation, and she immediately suggested making a podcast about this. In the last podcast, #44, I went over the Sales Process and how to conduct a successful sales visit and close the sale. So moving on to production is a logical next step. I hope you enjoy it. Here’s the overview of today’s podcast.
