Today I’m switching things up a bit. Instead of a regular podcast with a special guest, I’m sharing a webinar I recently did regarding how to get leads during the summer. In fact, the information can be used at any time of year when business slows down, including who you need to target first when that happens.

The message involves many tried-and-true strategies including Dan Kennedy’s “Results Triangle” that every smart business owner should familiarize themselves with and then utilize in their business. In this webinar, I will also go over some very compelling sample offers you can tailor to use in your own marketing efforts.

If you have any questions after listening to the webinar – or would like additional information regarding one or more of our products - I invite you to contact me.

On this episode of The Wealthy Contractor Podcast is Victor Smolyanov, owner of Victor’s Roofing in southeast Michigan.

When Victor climbed onto his first roof at age 13, he was instantly hooked. His father, Vladimir, was a roofer and put Victor to work to encourage him to take school more seriously and pursue a college degree instead of following in his footsteps.

But that plan backfired because Victor loved every minute of it. He went on to build a business that focuses on residential roofing, gutters, and attic insulation and employs more than 50 people. 

After making a number of poor hiring choices, he shares the things he’s learned about employing the right people and having proper systems in place. Listen carefully as we follow his interesting journey to success and what he’s learned along the way that got him off the roof.

Today’s episode features a return guest, Mike Michalowicz. By his 35th birthday, Mike had founded and sold two multi-million-dollar companies. Confident that he had the formula to success, he became an angel investor…and proceeded to lose his entire fortune.

So, he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. Today we’re discussing his latest book, Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself. He created the Clockwork system to immediately and permanently bring efficiency to organizations and businesses like yours so that you can finally work less and make more while freeing yourself from entrepreneurial poverty.

Mike admittedly writes books to fix his own problems, so you know he’s speaking from experience. If you haven’t read his books, it’s time you did. You’ll understand why after listening to this episode.

Today we welcome another return guest, Tony Hoty. Tony got his start in the home improvement industry while working as a door-to-door canvasser during his time at Ohio State. By the time he completed his schooling, he had spent years both generating and closing leads with great success. Tony’s next step would be an obvious one - he began his own retail home improvement company in Cleveland, Ohio.

In doing so, he worked his way up to becoming what I refer to as the “King of Face-to-Face Lead Generation” because nobody does it better.

In addition to sharing his tips for trade show success, he also describes the exciting details surrounding his recent entrepreneurial acquisition strategy and his plans for similar future purchases. It’s a rather unconventional strategy, but it’s definitely a brilliant one.

If you or your employees participate in any type of trade shows, this podcast is a must. Tony has simplified the entire strategy with step-by-step actionable items. You’ll want to take notes and share the information with your team, or even better, share the recording with them.
