Manage contracts like the boss you are!

We understand that being a subcontractor in today's world involves some unavoidable risks...

But what if I told you some risks have work arounds, and some will sink your business.

Would you want to know the difference?

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU? 

“I can't have my builders think I’m being contractual." 

"He won’t give me the next job". 

"I can't ruin my relationships, I need the work.”

Mate, I hear you. 

BUT WHO IS REALLY BEING CONTRACTUAL?

If your Builder's contract includes ridiculously high liquidated damages, termination for convenience, and a dozen other unfair loopholes, isn't the contractual guy the Builder?

There are no two ways about it – if you are signing contracts without negotiating achievable terms, you are playing blind man’s bluff on the freeway.

I promise you, it is possible for you to read contracts just like you read drawings.

Let me show you how.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

HOW MUCH HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?

Every time the builder costs you time and money he is stealing your cash.

Every time the builder short pays you, he is crippling your cashflow.

How much can you afford to lose before you are working to cut even?

Most Subbies lose thousands every year jumping through hoops for builders without being sure if they were even obliged to under their subcontract in the first place.

Would you spend this much  to avoid paying that much  again this year?
