Own Your Crap with Tom Reber | Episode 191

September 14, 2017

This week we have Tom from the Contractor Fight Podcast.

Tom Reber is a Marine veteran and a man who leads the Contractor Fight Podcast and former owner of a successful residential painting company outside Chicago.

“I got out of the Marines and I worked for my uncle for couple years running his crews. Fast forward another couple years and I up start my own business outside of the Chicago land area. We’re out of a little ten by ten room in my basement and within three years we’re doing between three and four hundred jobs per year.”

What happens so much in the market place is that contractors don’t get credit for their abilities. And a lot of that is our own fault.

We don’t give ourselves the proper credit for or own expertise.

We need to be our biggest fan!

If I can be honest, it simply comes down to I don’t think we are our own biggest fan. You know if you’re going to be a business owner, then you’re going to take on everything that comes with having your name on the check right and then.

You first and foremost must make the most important sale you make every day. It is that one to yourself that you’re the man or woman for the job. You have to own it.

You must believe there is no better option in town than you and you’ve got to get your head right around that. If you don’t have your head right around that, really understanding the value you’re bringing people, then you’re going to have a harder time building your business … that’s so true.

One of the challenges is many contractors don’t see themselves as the business owners.

You know winning this “contractor fight” that I’m all about is about us taking back our dignity as contractors. For too long we have told ourselves a B.S. story that life has to be a certain way for a contractor. For too long contractors have made crap money, you know it, I know it, but it does not have to be this way.

We need to come to the realization that, as contractors, we have value in the market place. And we should be paid in accordance to the value we bring to the market place.

Tom Reber says we need to own our crap!
