In this episode of Subcontractor Revolution, Shahn discusses the fact that many of us want to look like a champ in our business but don’t do all the training, prep, and actual work, when no one is looking. Scaling won’t fix the problem, it’ll only make things worse and possibly sink the whole operation. You need to train yourself and your team at one thing so when you jump in the ring you look and perform like a champ. Check out My Free Training At: https://join.subcontractorrevolution.com

In this episode of Subcontractor Revolution, Shahn discusses being direct when giving people answers and the fact that just the word “no” is a reasonable and acceptable answer. We should strive to remove “maybe” or any form of it from our answers and live by “yes” or “no.” It can be hard but it is also completely acceptable to say no to clients when the pay, type of work, or even who you are working for isn’t a good fit.  Check Out My Free Training at: https://join.subcontractorrevolution.com

In this episode of Subcontractor Revolution, Shahn discusses how we see the world as we are and not as it really is and how that can influence our reactions to things that present themselves in day to day life. Just because something triggers you doesn’t mean it’s bad, it’s all just information and how you react to it has a lot to do with how you feel about the rest of your life. If you find yourself triggered by something relatively mundane, be aware enough to ask yourself why this specific thing is triggering you.    Check Out My Free Training at: https://join.subcontractorrevolution.com
In this episode of Subcontractor Revolution, Shahn discusses our standards and how they affect everything we do.

Absolutely amazing podcast episode. No construction, small business, entrepreneurial, upper management podcast of any sorts has ever hit so close to my heart. Thank you for this. New to the podcast but not new to podcast in general. I'm only a few episodes in so far but it's amazing.

Leading men from desperation to liberation - I totally get that from you! I am so glad you are mapping the way for others. I subscribed. I loved episode 2 when you talk about power, why our lives aren't working and how to turn them around. Powerful insights in this one. I shared it with my husband. Thank you.
