I’m pretty excited about this new team starting up in the Bundaberg/Hervey Bay/Maryborough (Wide Bay) area, opening on January 30th. Find out more here.
Adopting a Team Mentality in Business
Everyone plays team sports, why is it that so many people miss the point of doing business as part of a team? It is great working with Slade and Aletha because they get the team thing. They had been doing well with their business prior to making initial contact with the Stroud Homes team, but saw an opportunity to take their building business and ramp it up to make it the leading building firm in the area – I’m very confident in predicting this outcome for Slade and Aletha!
Younger Players More Open to Change
Interestingly, we often find it easier to work with younger builders/less developed businesses – it seems their minds are open to learning new software, new methods of managing workflow, cashflow and quality within their business.
We can show you several examples where we’ve presented our franchised business system to a builder who builds 2-4 homes per year, and been soundly rejected. Soon after we take on a young open minded builder who sets his Stroud Homes business up properly and very quickly has production eclipsing the old, stuck-in-his-ways 2-4/year builder. How many builders in Australia play rugby, cricket, touch footy or something similar after work? Yet how many of those same builders find it so hard to see the benefits of working as part of a team in their business.
Rounding Out Our Stroud Homes Queensland Team
Stroud Homes has a top team of builders in Queensland now, and Slade and Aletha are a great example of that. They’ve travelled around a bit, worked at some of Australia’s top building companies and improved their skills with Aletha’s degree in building design. With their ambition and skills combined with Stroud Homes systems, marketing and design range – I think you’ll find Stroud Homes Wide Bay will soon start to eclipse their local competitors!
Opportunities still Available in NSW & Victoria
While opportunities to join the Stroud Homes team in Queensland are growing thin, our NSW and Victorian teams have a some high inquiry areas available, find out more here. We now have a Sydney based franchise support team available to explain our system, and follow through with training and setup. Call us on 0435 803 411.
