The downside is that EP Henry charges 30 bucks!!!!!!! Belgard has always done them for free
To my knowledge, techo has never done Vander Kooi seminars
I HIGHLY recommend that EVERYONE attend Vander Kooi's seminars. Vander Kooi does a good job of drawing awareness to reality. And many guys have no clue what they're doing in terms of pricing and tracking expenses, along with budgeting.
There are some contractors in my area that REALLY need to attend seminars. They have trucks and equipment that I feel it's safe to speculate they're makin payments on. When they are comin in thousands of $$$$$ less than a seasoned, veteran, competent contractor who has the lowest overhead possible - there's a SERIOUS problem. After I attended the 1st seminar many moons ago I bet I changed about 5 practices.
Ok, sure they'll only last 4-8 years in the hardscape biz. But that doesn't do me any good when I'm loosing all my sales to them in the interium.
One example out of many, is - we have guys here that I know do not factor in drive time to and from, each day, per employee. I am certain that after they attend a Vander Kooi seminar - they'll never price a job again without factoring in drive time!
I think everyone should attend Vander Kooi's seminars. It helps the entire industry as a whole.
