Best Financial Strategies To Run A Profitable Contracting Business - Igor Trninic

Financials – the one word that can have even the most seasoned contracting leader running for the hills. But, sorry to break this to you, mastering a budget is such a bedrock skill for your entire career as a business owner.

Business owners who have a strong and solid financial plan (and a well thought-through budget) are able to be more decisive and end up with financial freedom.

Well, can't you just hand it over to your bookkeeper or accountant, and be done with it? Afraid not...if you want to grow and succeed long-term. It's really not as scary (or dry/yawn-inducing/grey hair encouraging) as it may seem.

So, where do you start? BTA's Igor Trninic to the rescue * cue superman music * In this episode of Contractor Evolution, Igor (our numbers whizz) breaks down what a solid financial plan looks like and the steps to get there. Basically, if you have Grade 8 math and you don't mind screwing up the first few times, you're already ahead of the game.

Throughout the 6 week Blueprint Phase, a world-class trades business expert will guide you through the 6 pillars that will restructure your business and drive you to success. You’ll gain a strong understanding of all the business skills and processes within the BTA Management System and become aware of the blind spots that have been holding you back. Then you’ll get clear on exactly what you need to do to implement each part of your plan into one kick ass system.

3. Implementation 

With a ton of awesome ideas from your Blueprint, it’s time to methodically inject them into your business. This is 3 critical years of assembling each piece of your plan properly, measuring results along the way and adjusting for the reality of the day to day. There will be no guesswork and you won’t be reinventing the wheel, but you’ll need to be disciplined and patient with the process. Your coach and the BTA Community will be there for you the entire way, to ensure you’ve implemented an interconnected business system that finally pulls you out of the daily grind.
