Description

What is The Construction Life? The Construction Life is a daily routine of waking up at 5am, working out, showering, preparing lunch, sending off the family, driving to the construction site, organizing and preparing for the day's work, building, having fun on the job, wrapping up at the end of the day, returning home, spending time with the family, and preparing for the next day. It's a lifestyle that involves a constant commitment to hard work and a love for what you do, and it's never about settling for "good enough." The Construction Life is about striving for excellence every day.

But, how can we be in the high level of things and not the bits and bites, in order to be able to actually also have the time to build the business and take it forward? Because, see, whether we want it or not - we find ourselves dealing with the bits and bites - if we don’t have the right tool to operate our business. And by that I mean - if we are doing things manually instead of digitally. Now, I’m not talking about making sheets on excel or just texting instead of calling - I’m talking about whole new levels of doing things digitally - from knowing our employees clocked in at the right place and time, knowing our employees know the job they need to do, knowing what’s going on in the filed by receiving live forms or checklists - these all can be and should be done digitally! Not to mention your younger employees who work and live digitally, and expect to get that in their workplace as well. And if this sounds like fiction, it’s not - just switch to Connecteam - a platform built for managers - with a lot of different capabilities that helps you truly manage your business and gives you back time to focus on what you need, while giving your employees the work experience they expect to get in 2023 going on 2024.Connecteam has a free plan and a 14 day free trial, try them today by checking out the link in the show notes. Check out Connecteam at www.connecteam.com@connecteamapp on Instagram. www.connecteam.com/pricingand try out their free plan for companies with 10 employees or less.    Stay connected with The Construction Life Podcast by texting Manny at 416 433-5737 or emailing him at manny@theconstructionlife.com.

You guys laugh over harassing women but then stamp your feet, throw a tantrum and sue a woman for... posting audio of you admitting you think harassment is funny while claiming YOU are being harassed? What even is logic?? You guys really couldn't be women for five minutes. I hope this experience helps you grow up and develop some basic empathy, I sincerely do.
