How Many Places Can You Find With Strong Chance Of 100% Return
Let Me Say - If something seems too good to be true it probably is and you should stay far away from it.
However, if you have read anything I have ever written you will know that I do not gamble! I did lose fifty cents in a Casino in Vegas in the early 1970's and have not gambled since; and I am still mad about it!
I Do Like Managed Risks - Which is anything I can control the input and have a greater than breakeven chance of making a profit. I pay close attention to the higher levels of math and how it is used to predict with a degree of accuracy probable outcomes.
Decision Modeling Is One Of My Favorites - Decision modeling use reliable QuickBooks reports to generate predictions of profit and loss based upon re-allocating resources and aligning your Business Process Management system processes to present to you a variety of possible outcomes.
As possible outcomes are analyzed decisions become easy because the goals, processes and data come together. It offers you a way to attach knowledge, expertise and analytic insights.
As Contractors Move Away From Gut-level Decisions - And begin relying on their construction accounting systems to provide useful financial and job costing reports the open a treasure chest busting at the seams with useful knowledge which can lead them to earning massive profits and by extension increase their personal wealth exponentially.
If You Could Harness And truly understand even half of the information contained in your existing QuickBooks company file and I mean truly understood it, you could easily become a wealthy, debt free and be living the lifestyle you truly deserve in five years or less.
They Provide Snacks And Beverages - For their field workers and office staff. What you say? It costs money! How is spending money going to make me money? Perhaps you think I am crazy!
For Example Let's Look At One Field Worker Named Henry:
Henry may or may not have a hearty breakfast before coming to work at the construction site depending on a variety of factors outside your control and perhaps his too.
If Henry Is Hungry - His body does not have enough fuel to produce good quality work efficiently at 100% and it will show.
If Henry Is Not Hungry - He will produce at 100% in less time with fewer mistakes and that saves time and money on your labor, material, warranty work and other costs.
If Henry Wastes Thirty Minutes A Day - And you pay him $25.00 an hour that means with all of the employment taxes and overhead he costs you roughly $35.64 an hour. Which means you lost you lost $17.82 on what can be measured.
What cannot be measured; bad attitude disease, rework, warranty repairs, excess wear and tear on tools and equipment, etcetera is equal or greater than $17.82.
After A Couple Hours - Intense construction work Henry gets dehydrated and having burned a number of calories, he could be getting important messages from his stomach regarding FOOD NOW! This could cause Henry to slow down a little bit....costing your company some profit dollars.
Lunch Time - Henry didn't pack a lunch, wants to "work through lunch" and leave early. If you watch Henry real close around 02:00 PM you will see the metabolism dance right out of his body and now he is uncomfortable and getting a bit edgy, grouchy and a slightly nasty.
02:00 PM Until Quitting Time - Is when Henry will screw something up, get careless, get hurt and require medical attention, (Ca-ching $$$, Labor and Industries investigation, ca-ching $$$) or if you are lucky his afternoon production will be roughly 80% of his morning production.
Without Snacks And Beverages your stand to lose $53.46 on labor costs and $22.81 on material waste for a total loss of $76.27. See http://www.fasteasyaccounting.com/blog/bid/200304/Unique-Contractor-Investment-Can-Exceed-100-Return for all the details.
With Snacks And Beverages you stand to gain $41.38 after investing $5.00 +/- per employee.
Get a large cooler and assign someone to stop by the grocery store or convenience store and pick up two bags of crushed or cubed ice and a selection of single serving ice teas, bottled water, juices and other beverages and possibly some energy bars and related snacks. Investment per construction worker will be roughly $5.00 +/-
If you really wanted to increase profits consider having lunch delivered to the job site every day. You could alternate between Pizza, Sandwiches, Chicken, Tacos and whatever else makes sense to you.
