- One trick to making money in the construction field is to find a “niche” market, don’t choose markets that are over-saturated.
- Whatever you choose to do, be the best at it. When I moved to my current market I was assured that there will always be work for skilled tradesmen and that has definitely been true.
- A big decision is whether to be a “one man show” or to take on employees. I have chosen to cover my niche without employees but I’ve watched people find success both ways. To have employees definitely requires the right personality.
- There are several principles accepted as “Construction norms”, often these come in the form of preset parameters that you have to work within. Growing up I was told that a man is only worth so much per hour and that is still prevalent in the construction field today. Success comes from those who change the parameters instead of accepting them.
My purpose in creating Drywallinstruction.com is to teach a trade that I’ve come to enjoy. My next phase or project is to create a Business Plan that will share the knowledge and experience I’ve gained during my career accompanied by a library of training videos of all drywall repair scenarios. My goal is to help as many people as possible to find the same satisfaction that I’ve found running their own successful business.
