Some year end statistics


#21

@leavingnc, do you feel that you are maxed out as far as you two can do for work? Or are you gearing up do to $100K each next year? At what point do you think you’d have to hire out?

Again, congrats on an amazing year. I was reviewing your sheet again and like the structure of what you listed. I’m going to make one up for myself based off yours.

for the most part yes we’re not going to have any more exponential gains in our own productivity but rather we might make things 5% more efficient here 10% more efficient there I think it is possible if we work really hard to squeeze out 200k next year but that would mean we would have to have a much busier January and February and add like 1 or 2 k to each other month of the year which we may be able to do as we do more repeat business.

we were talking today at lunch time about what would be our next steps to be able to hire somebody we’re really looking into it for this upcoming spring

thank you

Speaking from a residential perspective, putting graphics on our truck was one of the best things we ever did. It directly paid for itself within 6 months. We did a wrap that cost ~$1500. It still gets us jobs every year.

Additionally, it reinforces professionalism, which is one of those intangibles (along with uniforms, professional bid sheets, etc) that lead to closing more sales. And WAY more
People stop to ask for estimates with the wrapped truck parked at a job.

Finally, Very few people have tried to negotiate with me in the 3.5 years we’ve had a wrap (as opposed to the first few years working out of a subaru with a magnet on the door). It’s more understood that this is a professional business and our price is our price.

So, graphics aren’t mandatory, but if I could go back, I would have wrapped it the minute we got the truck. Of course, early on, there are a lot of things to spend money on (and not a lot of money), so it’s understandable that someone might need to wait to make that move.

What kind of straps are holding down the ladder?

Awesome!! I’ve been planning on wrapping but I keep laying it off. Now I’m getting my 2nd company vehicle and I have to stop laying it off. Especially hearing your testimony TJ. That’s exciting


#27

I would assume most of your jobs were residential?


#28

by number it’s about 50-50 we have about 50 storefronts and we do about 50 houses a month. but by Dollar it’s about 80%-85% residential

Just curious Ben, average window count?


#30

probably 35 as an average. panes that is, not windows

This is fantastic. What a blessing for sure. Now you are only bound by your imagination. Don’t forget to enjoy the moment and reflect on the journey.

Good luck moving forward.

Really interesting metrics. I should start doing something similar for my WC revenue.
Congratulations on having such a good year!
