Contractor Growth Network

May 18, 2020

Being human means you are going to go through life with strengths and weaknesses; it doesn’t matter who you are. You don’t have to let those weaknesses stop you from achieving success. Logan’s guest today is Shawn Van Dyke, a contractor business coach, author of 2 best-selling books, and an international keynote speaker for construction groups all over the world. Shawn started as an engineer, quickly moving into project management for large contractors where he was able to see all the trades work together. After years of helping manage projects, both others and his own, he began building scalable systems for other contractors to help build their businesses. Learn to recognize your strengths and weaknesses so you don’t bury your business when someone else can save it!


In this episode, we talk about…

  • What makes The Craftsmen Cycle unique in the contracting industry
