If you own a custom home building company and you’re working on increasing your margins, your revenue or both, you’re in the right place. We’ve coached thousands of builders to implement our proven systems. However, you may have a few questions…

Do I really need a coach?

No one is self-made. Every successful person you have ever come across has worked with a coach, advisor, mentor, or guide.

Whether they are professional athletes, businessmen or performers, they invest in their development and look to a coach for guidance. As a professional builder, it’s no different.

So, yes, if you are looking to improve your business, grow your building company safely and securely, and work smarter… Then you absolutely do need a coach.

However, not just any coach. You should seek advice from an authority in the field you are working in. You need a coach, and you need the right coach for you. Click here to schedule a call with our team to see if we’re a fit.

Is my building company too big for APB?

We have found that some of our larger coaching clients, in terms of annual revenue, see the fastest and most life-changing results when joining APB. As you scale, you face growing pains, such as increased overheads, more complex project management, bottlenecks to productivity, and people problems you’ve never faced before.

The APB Executive Business Coaching team has decades of experience dealing with the complexities of a scaling building company. We can help you understand exactly which dials you need to turn to create more leverage, more discretionary time, and more profit in your business.

Still unsure? You can schedule a call with our team to see if APB is right for you.

Is my building company too small for APB?

It’s a very common question for builders who build 1-2 homes per year or complete smaller projects, to be concerned if joining is worthwhile for them.

The truth is, in order to have a successful and continually improving business, you still need to have:

-  An effective yet simple sales process.
-  An understanding of the key metrics in running a building company.
-  A marketing strategy to bring in consistent and quality enquiries, and to become an authority, and positive brand in your market.
-  A productive yet happy team.
-  Systems to ensure that you can grow sustainably and for the long term.

We can ensure you’ll get value from joining APB and if not, just let us know in the first 30 days. We’ll issue a 100% refund, no questions asked.

You’re better off getting the right systems in place from day one than waiting until you are bigger and changes become much more complex.

Still unsure? You can schedule a call with our team here.

How much time should I invest in this?

If you want to make progress in your building company, you need to regularly invest time into learning and development. It can be as little as a couple of hours each week.

How do I join as a member?

Getting started as a member of APB is easy. Just click here to create your account.

I need accountability, do you offer one-on-one coaching?

Sometimes, the difference between doubling your building company in 12 months and doubling it in 24 months is a little accountability.

If you operate a building company that has sales in excess of $3m/year, you may qualify to join Business Coaching, which includes monthly one-on-one accountability sessions with your own Executive Business Coach at APB.

I’m already working with a coach; why would I need to join?

While you may already be working with a coach, it's important to consider the specialised knowledge required to run a successful building company.

Generalist coaches lack the industry-specific insights that can truly benefit your residential construction business. 

For tailored guidance and industry-specific strategies, finding an industry expert can make a significant difference in your business growth.

I have an accountant. Why do I need a business coach too?

While accountants play a crucial role in managing your financial history, they primarily focus on your past financial data. This backward-looking approach might miss the proactive strategies needed for future challenges. For instance, many accountants didn't foresee the recent impact of interest rate hikes and cost increases on the building industry, which can delay your response to market shifts by years.

A business coach works with you to anticipate future market conditions, helping you prepare and adapt swiftly. This forward-thinking guidance ensures you're not just surviving but thriving, regardless of the economic climate.

Why would I work with you instead of a former builder?

Our expertise lies not in building — which you already excel at — but in elevating your business operations to maximise profitability and growth. While former builders can offer valuable insights, their transition to coaching might reflect limitations in scaling their own businesses.

At APB, we focus on equipping you with advanced financial knowledge and strategic business skills tailored specifically to home builders. Our approach has a proven track record, supported by hundreds of case studies and testimonials from members who renew year after year, showcasing our ability to transform good builders into great business owners.

Still unsure? You can schedule a call with our team here.

Can my staff use this training?

Absolutely. As long as the information is for the same building company, then yes, we can include them as an additional user to your account with no additional charges. Just let your Membership Success Coach know about them in your private onboarding session, and we can get them set up.

I’m too busy right now to join. Can I get started later?

You can become a member of the Association of Professional Builders today or at any point in the future. However, the question you need to ask yourself is, what is stopping you from working on your business today? 

If you're concerned about your busy schedule, it's even more reason to consider joining today. Our resources are designed to help you prioritise and allocate your time effectively, ensuring you focus on what truly matters.

The best time to have started something like this in your building company would have been years ago. But the second best time is today. Click here to schedule a call.

What’s the risk if this doesn’t work for me?

Our 30-day money-back guarantee is as straightforward as it gets. 

When you become a member of the Association of Professional Builders, you have an entire month to explore all our resources and immerse yourself in our community of professional builders.

We're confident you'll see results and value in that time, but if for any reason you don't find it beneficial or enjoyable, no worries! We offer a no-questions-asked, full refund – no quibble, no hard feelings. 

Your satisfaction is our priority, and we're here to support you every step of the way.

If you’re based in Australia, how can you coach me in North America?

We have dedicated Executive Business Coaches located in the United States and Canada, ensuring that our coaching is region-specific. 

We've successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of our systems with members in various countries, including the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK. 

Our proven systems have delivered results in both metropolitan areas and smaller regional communities.

I’m not good with numbers. Is this too advanced?

If you're concerned about your ability with numbers, there's no need to worry. APB’s systems are designed to be understandable for builders of all backgrounds.

One thing we know for sure is that what you do, bringing together hundreds of materials and people to make a structure that people live in, is one of the most complex jobs out there. You might be underestimating yourself!

APB's role is to provide you with systems to streamline the business side of your operations, making it easier to deploy proven strategies into your building company. You have the capability to handle everything inside the APB Portal, and we're here to guide you every step of the way.

How can I get my business partner on the same page as me?

We recommend both of you attend one of our events, where we provide valuable free resources and exclusive offers to help grow your building company safely and securely. 

At these events, you will have the opportunity to network with like-minded professional builders. You will be able to share your goals, challenges and experiences with other builders (including current members of APB) who are on the same journey as you.

Click here to check out our upcoming events.

I know what I need to be doing; I just need help with implementation. Can you help me?

When you join APB, you gain access to our network of trusted partners who can handle the implementation for you. 

Our experts cover a wide range of services, from marketing and website design to project management and workplace safety. We aim to solve your time management challenges and, in addition, offer a cash rebate. 

With APB Rewards, you receive cash back straight into your bank account every quarter from the services you use from our long list of industry partners. We're here to ensure your business thrives with streamlined and expert implementation.

Will I get support as a member?

When you become a member, you gain access to over 50 Action Plans to help you scale your construction business. In addition, you'll receive dedicated support from your personal Member Success Coach, who is available to answer your questions and ensure you maximise your membership benefits.

You can participate in the Members Live Coaching Call, where we cover topics ranging from self-improvement and business operations to construction financials, marketing a building company, closing high-dollar sales, and setting up systems for residential construction.

Joining APB also grants you entry to our exclusive member's Facebook Group, connecting you with fellow building company owners who understand your journey. It's an ideal space to ask questions, share insights, and build meaningful connections.

When you say you provide systems to your members, do you mean software? Is APB a software platform for builders?

APB is not a software platform; we are the leading coaching company for custom home builders. Our primary focus is on coaching and mentoring our members to implement proven systems that drive results. These systems can be found within our members' coaching portal.

Each system includes a range of valuable resources, such as templates, calculators, checklists, and scripts that builders can easily download. These resources are complemented by in-depth, step-by-step video training designed to assist members on how to implement new strategies into their building companies.

How will I find the time to do the training?

Our training is designed to be flexible, allowing you to invest the time you have available. 

Learning new skills, such as marketing and new pricing methods, can seem daunting and generate additional work. That's where we step in to ease the burden. We can take on the responsibility of setting up a coaching program for your team to follow. You can then schedule a quarterly call with us to review their progress, ensuring that you can see exactly how they're progressing without adding unnecessary pressure to your already busy schedule.

Do I need to join as a member first, or can I go straight into Business Coaching?

To qualify for Business Coaching, you must be a member of APB. However, this can happen simultaneously, and we can fast-track you into Business Coaching whenever you are ready. Just inform your Member Success Coach that you wish to start with Business Coaching, and we'll handle the process from there.

I’m part of a franchise. Do I need APB?

We have many members at APB who are part of a franchise group. While all franchise groups are different, some don’t provide all the support you need to run a profitable building company. They are often motivated by revenue, not profit because that’s how they make more money!

So if you want additional support and coaching on turning your business into a systemised, profitable, growth machine, then working with APB could be just what you need.

Transform Your

Building Company

All the step-by-step training, how-to guides, templates, checklists, cheatsheets, and connected community inside your membership with APB will give you results fast!

Everything has been tested and proven to work for residential building companies focused on new homes or large remodeling projects. It's everything you need to grow your building company safely and securely.
