We’ve been doing this for over 30 years, and still, we will give a fixed price all the time, we do not like going cost plus.

Inside episode 122 you will discover:

  • How to cater to your niche
  • Why fixed price contracts are integral to growth
  • The benefits and challenges of working with family
  • How APB coaching changed Joe’s Carpentry
  • And much, much more.
