“I am passionate about working with construction related businesses. It’s a complex, multi-faceted industry. Sure, it takes longer for construction business owners to decide to get outside advice, but once they do, they commit 100%, they follow through, and they succeed. These owners recognize their responsibilities for the safety and success of their employees and they take that responsibility seriously. I love the integrity and energy they bring to the table.”
