This Podcast Is Episode Number 500, And It's About Cost-Reduction Strategies For Construction Company Owners Cutting costs can be a quick and easy way to improve the profitability of your construction business. Introducing cost-control measures can bring immediate savings and ensure you remain profitable in the long term. But cost-control measures must be carefully managed. Eliminating errant expenses is beneficial, but indiscriminate cost-cutting could lead to a drop in quality or poor morale if staff fear being made redundant or are not given the tools they need to do their job efficiently. This risk is heavily reduced by identifying where you can safely trim costs, setting clear cost-reduction targets, and researching any cost-saving initiatives before making changes to your contracting business. Planning for effective cost-control The first step towards reducing costs is identifying your major cost areas. These are likely to include: Production Purchasing Sales and marketing Financing Administration Facilities maintenance 1. Profit and Loss Start by assessing your profit and loss statement for the last six months and rank all your expenses from highest to lowest, working your way down the list and identifying areas where you can reduce costs. It's a good idea to first focus on identifying cost-saving measures in places where you'll see the most significant return. For example, it's wise to work toward saving 5% on a $200,000 expense rather than a slightly higher percentage on a lower-cost expense. 2. Try new ideas You might find it challenging to anticipate savings without implementing new systems and processes. Remember that any changes you make don't need to be permanent. If you aren't sure if a cost-saving measure is suitable for your business, consider trying it for a few months and then assessing the results. This way, you'll know the actual cost savings without committing long-term to new processes or changes. Any new processes or systems should be benchmarked and frequently revisited to ensure they are still suitable for your business. Consider asking staff for feedback around any changes to confirm that no hidden problems could cost you more than the cost-saving value. If you are in doubt about any potential changes, consider seeking professional advice from an accountant, industry association, or business mentor. 3. Quick savings You might be surprised that significant savings can be made without worrying about your quality and affecting performance. Here are the most popular ways to trim costs without making radical changes. Eliminate unnecessary costs – start with waste reduction, heating costs, and utility charges. Reduce inefficiency by identifying manual tasks that could be computerized or completed less frequently. Avoid frequent, small orders that cost more than larger orders and take additional time to complete. Reduce travel expenses by booking air travel earlier and using cheaper accommodations on business trips. Find alternatives to high-priced suppliers or negotiate better payment terms or discounts on purchased goods. Revise your credit policies to encourage prompt payment. Brainstorm immediate cost savings with your staff – they might have some valuable suggestions you may have overlooked. 4. Significant savings Once you have identified your major cost areas, you may want to investigate potential ways to save money by changing existing processes. Some of the most common opportunities are listed below, but before adopting any changes, you should be aware of any potential damage to your core business activities. Cut payroll costs by outsourcing non-essential activities. Redesign your existing processes to eliminate duplication and cut time wastage. Make use of current technology or the latest industry innovation. Agree to long-term supply contracts, or guarantee a minimum purchase amount to secure better terms. Trim back or revise your current product offering and remove poor-performing products. Form strategic alliances with other businesses to buy larger volumes. Consider subletting office space or relocating to a more cost-efficient location. There may also be other costs, such as long-term, fixed-rate business loans or fixed-price contracts for raw materials, that you may be able to reduce when these are up for renewal or tender. Pitfalls to avoid Reducing costs can have a negative effect, so you'll need to be sure that changes will not compromise your operational performance. Some common pitfalls include: Over-dependence on one supplier could put you at risk if your supplier fails. Reducing your marketing budget could affect your marketing strategy. Tighter control of business finances could leave you without a safety margin if cash flow becomes tight. Cutting short-term costs such as training, research, development, or advertising can lead to long-term weaknesses. Employee costs Reducing employee-related costs is generally risky and counterproductive in the long term. Reducing costs such as staff training or meeting times could lead to poor staff morale and reduced productivity. Making employees redundant could bring short-term costs and the risk of possible employment proceedings. It may also contribute to low morale. Changing an employee's terms and conditions can also create legal issues in some circumstances, so it's always a good idea to get expert advice before making a decision. These problems can be minimized by maintaining clear communication with employees. Introducing cost-saving through improved practices and procedures will require a degree of employee 'buy-in' so your employees know why you are making changes. Employees may need additional training and support over these periods. Next steps Schedule a staff meeting to review your costs and brainstorm possible saving measures. Commit to an ongoing cost-control and monitoring process (or delegate to key staff to manage the process). Ask your accountant to assist you with cost-saving initiatives or brainstorm ideas. Final thoughts Every small construction business owner knows how challenging it is to cut down expenses without somehow compromising internal or external quality. Regardless of your business's nature, the first step to reducing your overhead costs is to take the time to go through every single expense you have -assess which ones are necessary for your business to operate smoothly, what can be trimmed down, and what can be eliminated. It's important not to rest on your laurels. Continually thinking of ways to reduce your overheads is essential for a healthy cash flow, so conducting regular reviews of your business expenses should be a routine task.

People ask me all the time “What should I do now to grow my business?” Often they say: “I heard….is a good idea. Should l do that?” Every online business expert is selling their thing to us. (Including me!) Our friends and colleagues tell us that what they are doing now is THE thing that works. It's confusing to figure out what to invest our time and money in and what to try. What should YOU focus on next? People ask me whether they should: Figure out their visual Branding. Uplevel their Website design. Learn Copywriting skills Learn email marketing skills Dive into Social media strategy Get on Tiktok Buy legal templates Redesign their curriculum Join a high priced mastermind Buy another business course Learn how to run paid ads Start a podcast Start being a guest on podcasts Create a self-led course Hire a virtual assistant or an online business manager Invest in a new tech platform to get organized Create a monthly membership How do you figure out what you should do? I've gotten really clear that before we talk about WHAT you should do, we need to talk WHEN you should do certain things. If you ask me whether you should hire a social media manager or create a monthly membership or take a copywriting course or really anything…my first question will be: Where are you in your business right this minute? I used to be way more agnostic about this. If you worked with me in 2018 you might have heard me say…sure it might not be ideal but…you COULD try a monthly membership as your first thing. I didn't want to take anyone's freedom away. I got clear pretty fast that doing things in the wrong order sets us up to lose money and feel miserable. As you're creating a business beyond private practice, and stepping into the world of online services that are not therapy, you can waste a TON of time and money doing things in the wrong order. Even if those are not the wrong things to do. I sometimes hear very sad stories from people who started with the wrong things. People tell me they invested in 20K coaching programs as one of their first steps in business beyond private practice. Those programs taught them to use complicated funnels including paid ads and webinars. I've talked to other folks who started hiring a team as their first thing. They figured since the marketing felt hard, they'd start by hiring someone to “take over all of their marketing.” Other people got advice that they should grow a huge social media following as their first step. Their businesses were not at the right stage for any of those moves, and their frustration and sadness comes from feeling like they've failed, they've wasted tons of money, and even believing it's their fault. Any of those moves might make sense at the right time. I'm not saying coaching programs should never cost 20k. That's not the takeaway. For some business owners, hiring someone to help you implement your marketing strategy might make sense when you're at a certain stage. And developing a social media following is still part of a sound strategy for some business owners. Here's a small tangent on that one. Growing a huge audience as your first step used to work. That's why people keep teaching it. Tara McMullin, one of my mentors, and my guest in the last episode, wrote a wonderful article titled: You Can't Grow an Audience Like You Used To (and That's Okay) Tara walks us through the history of online marketing and explains why the strategy of growing a huge audience and THEN starting to sell stuff to them worked in the past and is not working any longer. If you're thinking…"but that's what Pat Flynn did! That's what Amy Porterfield did!" you might want to read that article. End of tangent. You've gotta take steps to create and then grow your business in the right order. Just like you have to build a house in the right order. You shouldn't start with the roof. So what ARE the first things to do when you're in stage one of a new business? (Perhaps you've already got a private practice, but we're talking about creating a NEW business beyond private practice. Any new business starts at stage 1.) Stage one has 3 steps. Those 3 steps are to identify a viable niche, create a highly valuable offer for that niche, and sell that offer. Let's go through each of those for a moment. The first step is to identify a viable niche. If you want to hear me talk through the process of choosing your niche, head to my episode titled The Best Niches Beyond Private Practice. Sometimes therapists and healers want to skip or rush through this step. Niche work can feel tedious. It can feel limiting. It can feel…NOT like what you want to do first! And maybe you know you can serve a whole bunch of different niches really well. Maybe in your private practice you haven't niched and you're very successful. Well… creating a signature program and a business beyond private practice with a vague or broad niche is VERY difficult and sets you up to feel discouraged and sad. So go listen to that niching episode to hear examples of viable niches and what makes a great niche. Step two is to create and a pilot or beta offer for that niche. Do this quickly so that you find out whether your idea works and so that you can start making money. Your pilot is going to be highly interactive, and you're going to deliver it 1:1 or to a very small group. You're crafting your pilot for the people in your niche, based on exactly what they need from you and what you're great at delivering. Sometimes therapists want to skip over this step and create a passive online course or start building a monthly membership. Don't start there. Because: That only possibly works when you've got a lot of people aware of your work and in your audience. Even if you have a big audience, every offer should start live and interactive. That's how you're gonna build the best offer. If you pre-record videos for your pilot, you're going to be re-recording them for round 2. You might as well save yourself ALL of those hours. The formats I recommend for a pilot are: Small-group coaching 1:1 coaching Training or consulting package for an organization Workshop Retreat Once you've done those first 2 steps, identifying your niche and crafting your pilot offer, you're ready for the next step. Step 3 is to sell your program. You'll do this through a relational/soft launch. You're going to tell everyone you know that you've created this pilot, and you're going to invite your first participants. A relational launch will include reaching out personally to your colleagues, announcing your offer in communities you belong to, sending personal invites to potential participants, offering discovery calls to people who are considering signing up, and maybe running free interactive events like a Q&A or a free workshop over zoom. If you're not sure whether enough people are aware of your work and ready to make those referrals, you're going to start with a 1:1 offer even if you KNOW you're going to turn it into a group offer soon. A lot of people ask me how long it takes to move through those 3 steps. You can go through them in 8 weeks or you can take up to a year. That length of time depends on: your focus whether you get led away to other opportunities how much time you can dedicate to the process whether you try out some vague niches or wrong-fit pilots whether the tech involved in these steps trips you up your willingness to ask people to spread the word your willingness to invite people to your program your ability to communicate your understanding of your right fit person's situation your ability to communicate the value of your offer There's one more thing you might want to do in stage one. You're probably going to want to start an email list. If there's a good chance you're going to stick with this niche, you'll likely regret not having started an email list. And don't do ANYTHING else until you're through stage one. Don't focus on branding or naming or Tiktok or anything else. Those activities will take you away from your first 3 steps. And you won't get much value from those things until you've done those 3 steps. Any skilled branding expert or web designer or copywriter is going to ask you to tell them about and show them your foundation. Then they can help you amplify it. If you don't have a business, there's nothing to amplify. But what about tech platforms? The only tech/platform things you might need or want are: A simple, DIY, one or 2 page website for describing and selling your offer A simple checkout process so that people can pay you The minimal platforms needed to deliver the program (like zoom) And perhaps you'll want Legal templates An email marketing service so that interested people can get on your email list Invest in a working with a business coach in stage one ONLY if you think they will help you get it done faster, you can pay for that help without going into debt, and it costs an amount you can soon make back. Find a person or program who will help you only focus on those first 3 steps until you've gotten through them. Once you've served some people with your pilot, you've got a business and you can start discerning what you're going to do next grow your business. You're in stage 2. Stage 2 is when you can focus on reaching more people, honing your messaging, and reiterating and improving your offer. I've got a program for you to get you all the way through those first 3 steps of stage 1 in 8 weeks. It's called Create Your Program. I designed CYP to help you start a solid business beyond private practice, whether that's gonna be your main thing or a profitable side hustle. Some people come to CYP as their first move beyond private practice. Other folks come to CYP after they've invested in programs where they learned marketing strategies their businesses weren't ready for. After CYP they're in a much better position to use what they learned in those other programs. ->The waitlist is open now. Get on it so you hear when I open registration. In CYP I guide you step-by-step from niching all the way through launching a pilot program. This is a small group experience where you'll get a lot of brave work done in a supportive group of driven and open hearted entrepreneurs like you. If you're worried about the legal part of this, you are not alone. We have a guest attorney come in to answer your legal questions and recommend your first steps in that area. The last two times I opened registration, CYP filled early, so do make sure you're on the waitlist so that you hear as soon as it opens. Show notes at https://rebeltherapist.me/podcast/188

Join Nick & Elijah for 1 hour as we explore possible tech solutions to environmentally destructive behavior by big business and the dishonest greenwashing that comes with it.Companies these days make promises about producing less waste and pollution, but the reality is nobody is really holding them accountable.

We are Donnell Cannon and Jenny O'Meara, two passionate educators. Welcome to Season 2 of The Hummingbird Stories! This season, we're asking the question: What does an extraordinary education look like for every student? We're hosting conversations with the most innovative, equity-minded leaders in education from all across the country — and that includes young people. In this episode, we confront the paralysis that can set in when it feels like there's so much to do. Our guests remind us, though -- to just start! This episode features interviews with Miguel Gonzales, directors of schools at Embark Education, Aylon Samouha, directors at Transcend Education, and Kimberly Smith, executive director at the League of Innovative Schools. We don't just want to hear from guests on our show. We want to hear from you, too. In every episode on this season of The Hummingbird Stories, we'll pose a question and ask you to weigh in through our Telbee. This week's question asks you to think about the emphasis Aylon and Kimberly placed on the importance of listening to community. What's one first step you can do a better job of listening to your community tomorrow? Visit sayhi.chat/hummingbird to chime in. We know a lot of “Hummingbirds” who are no longer waiting for change in a system on fire, but rather choosing to do something. We hope they'll inspire you to take real action, no matter how small, toward redesigning schools. An extraordinary education for all young people is possible. But it's going to take all of us to make it happen.

Sarah Ichioka is co-author with Michael Pawlyn of 'Flourish' a rich, inspiring book that outlines key paradigm shifts for this time of planetary emergency. Looking deeply into the web of life, Flourish proposes a bold, imaginative - and do-able - set of regenerative principles to transform how we design, make and manage our buildings and our communities. Sarah is an urbanist, curator, writer and podcast host. Connecting cities, culture and ecology, she has been recognised as a World Cities Summit Young Leader, and one of the Global Public Interest Design 100. She is founding director of the Singapore-based strategic consultancy 'Desire Lines' and is co-author, with Michael Pawlyn, of the book 'Flourish' and co-host with Michael of the Flourish podcast. In this expansive, incisive conversation, Sarah expands on the five paradigms she and Michael identified that are holding us back in the old 'business as usual' frame and the ways we can shift our world-view to new ways of thinking, being - and designing our lives. Drawing on the work of foundational thinkers like Freya Matthews, Donella Meadows, Janine Benyus and Ronan Krznaric, plus existing communities such as the Los Angeles Eco Village, Sarah shows us that the ideas and actions are already in place, we just need to build them bigger, proving that, as Willam Gibson has said, the future is here, it's just unevenly distributed.

In response to a frightening array of challenges facing public higher education nationally and acutely concentrated in Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) undertook an innovative and bold redesign to fundamentally transform education and business models. Launched in 2017, the multi-phase, System redesign focused on 3 goals: 1) advance student success; 2) leverage universities' strengths as a system; and 3) enhance “systemness” through accountability and governance. In support of the effort, the Board of Governors established metrics-based expectations for each university's financial stability, transparency, accountability, and sustainability. With two phases completed, early results are stunning. In this first episode of Season 4, we sit down with PASSHE Chancellor Dr. Daniel Greenstein and PASSHE Board of Governors Chair Dr. Cynthia Shapira to learn the backstory for this unprecedented effort. Dan and Cindy speak candidly about what it takes to pull off a change effort of this magnitude including the importance of having an effective governance and leadership team, data driven decision making, and an unwavering student-first commitment. Early success markers include the integration of six Universities to create two new powerhouse regional Universities and a a historic state funding increase of $75 million (16 percent) to $552.5 million in the 2022-23 state budget. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chelip/message
