In this episode, we’re talking with Dave Harrison, professor, consultant, and speaker. And, by the way, unknowingly (until recently) he played a major role in the early success of gFour Marketing.

As a serial entrepreneur, Dave started a number of companies, but he eventually landed in the corporate world. And quite by accident, he began transforming large companies that were technically bankrupt into successful entities. He then took that talent and joined GAF Materials Corporation, where he became a Chief Marketing Officer.

Dave knows that the key to success is delegating the major parts of your business and building a strong team around you. You’ll understand the importance of this when you’ve heard what he has to say. Pay close attention because there is an abundance of important success clues in this episode.

On this week’s podcast, I’m doing something a little different. Instead of talking with a home improvement contractor, I’m talking with Marc Levesque, co-founder of Webrunner Media. His company does just one thing – it helps contractors generate leads.

Marc began selling a technology that helped agencies manage media buys across multiple platforms such as Facebook, Google and LinkedIn. He eventually started his own company and was able to build a niche in the home improvement industry.

Lead generation is such an important part of your business and Marc has become an expert in creating leads for contractors online. I like what he’s doing - he’s doing it right and I think you’ll agree when you listen to this podcast.

On today’s podcast, we’re talking with Deren Scott Monday from Kitchen & Bath CRATE in Modesto, California. Deren’s business is a bit different from the other guests we’ve talked with.

Deren and his wife were in one of those members-only big box stores and began joking about the fact that the store sold nearly everything except kitchen remodels. 

Deren’s story is unique in that he has done an amazing job of systemizing a business that's difficult to systemize. He became intentional in his actions and took a “profit first” approach to boost his business. Success leaves clues, so listen to this podcast two and three times so you don’t miss any of the valuable nuggets Deren shares.

This week’s guest is Frank Farmer, President and CEO of American Metal Roofs in Flint, MI. 

Frank grew up in an extremely impoverished family with the unlikely dream of becoming a physician. Right before he graduated Michigan State University, he realized that being a physician wasn’t practical for him.

He knew someone who was successful working within a window business and took a position in that industry. Working his way up, he helped grow that company to over $20 million before leaving to start his own company, American Metal Roofs.

From his system-building methods to the interesting process he used to develop the morals within his business, there’s a lot to take away from this conversation, so you’ll probably want to listen to it more than once.

On this week’s podcast, we’re talking with another return guest, Bob Quillen, of award-winning Quillen Brothers Windows in Ohio.

Bob’s story is an interesting one, from his humble beginnings growing up in a family on welfare, to a stint in the Marine Corps, to the overwhelming success he enjoys today. He describes his very successful business as “a self-improvement company that happens to sell home improvements.” 

I personally learned a lot on this call and in fact, he inspires me every time we speak. Listen closely and I’m sure he’ll do the same for you.
