Financial SuperPowers for Builders, Remodelers & Contractors

How to Understand & Run Your Construction Business "By the Numbers"

I'm Diane Gilson, and I've created this program based on my 24 years of in-the-trenches experience helping builders, remodelers and contractors run their businesses more profitably.

I've designed this "big-picture" series specifically to meet the needs of super-busy construction professionals who don't have an accounting background, but want a simple way to understand the financial side of their business.

I look forward to seeing you in our program soon.

Designed For Busy Construction Managers & Owners!

Your Program Includes

Three half-hour "big-picture" videos per month
(1.5 hours per month, 12 topics in total)
Watch on your computer, laptop, or tablet - OR listen on your phone as you drive between jobs or work out.

Access to your online portal
(Available to all members of your team)
Includes your training videos, audio files, downloads and other resources. From your portal you can also access recordings of the monthly coaching and Q&A sessions. 

Two live, interactive Q&A and coaching sessions each month with me (Diane Gilson)
(Attend one or both as desired, or access recordings - 8 total)
After a quick review of the "topics of the month", we'll open the lines for inquiries, discussion, and best practice ideas. This is the place to find out what your construction pro peers are up to - and what they have to say! 

My personal recommendations:
>  Stellar business books.
>  Software you shouldn't be without.
