Sponsored by The Home Depot
Join Justin for the first episode of a two-part series in which he interviews friend, Fine Homebuilding ambassador, and building-industry business consultant Shawn Van Dyke.
Shawn is one of the best business consultants we’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with. His ability to take complex business topics and make them easy to understand is impressive enough, but he goes a step further with his knowledge of building and with the struggles that we builders face when it comes to profitability and success. Give him a listen, and be sure to check out his recurring blog posts in Building Business.
