Publisher's Summary

Construction industry business coach, speaker, and author, Shawn Van Dyke, has taken the core concepts of Mike Michalowicz's Profit First and customized them to address the specific needs of the construction industry. Profit First for Contractors addresses the major struggles contractors face and provides clear and actionable guidance on how to overcome them. Shawn shows contractors how to go from simply getting by to becoming permanently profitable. This audiobook is for every construction business owner who dreams of prosperity. 

Using Van Dyke's Profit First for Contractors system, listeners will learn how to break out of the "craftsman cycle" - the seemingly never-ending loop of urgent tasks and responsibilities that keep contractors from gaining traction toward their important goals. He guides construction business owners how to understand their financial statements and how to use them to determine the markup and margin that lead to profits. You will also learn how to develop solid rules of thumb for the operation of your construction businesses, and how to implement an effective cash management plan that simplifies accounting and leverages normal human behavior. Using real-life stories from actual construction business owners, step-by-step advice, and his conversational twang, Van Dyke puts permanent profitability within reach of every construction business owner.

A must for any contractors / construction business

I have been following Shawn Van Dyke since 2016 and meet him for the 1st time at the International Builders Show in 2017. Shawn is a great guy and a wealth of knowledge which he shares in his book. I have bought the book and now download the audible version to listen to.

This stuff works for real

Shawn lays out the simple process for how you WILL make a profit in your construction business.. Starting today (yep). Could not recommend this enough for anyone who's frustrated with the boom and bust cycle of making money and then watching it mysteriously disappear. Apply this book, change your life. Audiobook is easy to listen to with great stories and examples, plus Shawn's voice is like warm carmel running down a gradual snow crested mountainside.

It’s a solid approach to managing your business finances!

This is a great book if your looking for a real world approach to running a responsible and profitable business. It’s a system - you need to follow it and be disciplined in your approach. My dad ran his business using the GAAP method and I never understood why his accountant asked him to spend money at tax time when he didn’t really have any profit to spend - I get it, it reduces your tax burden. This book makes the accounting side make sense.

Great book for construction businesses

This is a great book that in detail explains the not so hard process of managing your cash in a construction business. It takes the best parts of Profit First and compliments it so the system is more applicable on a construction business.

answers my questions from PF.

Profit First is awesome but this book helps with the specifics of implementation within a construction business which is the only thing missing in PF. Well worth it but I would read PF too as it helps drive home the fundamentals.

wonderfully narrated and brilliant information

I listened to the original profit first after Shawn van dyke recommenced it on social media. it changed my business and last year was the first year my partner and I were able to do significant profit sharing. this book is just like a diet book, follow these simple steps and you will lose weight, or in this case, make money. the delineation is clear and I can't tell you how much it changed my life. if you can build a house that will last 100 years what if you're building a business that won't last 5? get this shit. listen to this shit. live this shit.
