Remodeling Business 101 - Three-Part Educational Series

Presented by Leslie Shiner- Author, speaker, trainer, and financial and management consultant.

Construction is a complex business, both in the actual completion of projects and “running the books” behind the scenes.

Ultimately, business and financial management are what determine a business' sustainability and long-term profitability. This comprehensive three-part educational series will help you better understand how to start, build, and better manage a remodeling company. You will learn how to utilize basic financial management concepts, especially those specific to the construction industry. We will also cover best practices for project management to improve profitability. Join us for 4.5 hours of education to understand the basics for starting your own remodeling business or set the fundamentals you can build upon to better manage your current business.
