Today's episode is your blueprint for success. We will give you the essential guide to business planning for contractors.

Do you have a business plan in place for 2024? If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there! The problem is that too many contractors wander around in no particular direction and with no plan. We created the 1 Page Business Plan because it makes things simple. The magic is in the thought and planning process it takes to create your business plan. Know where you were in 2023 and where you want to go in 2024! Learn more with Dave Sullivan and John DeLaurier in today’s episode!
