The Elements of Building Q&A

About this course:

Improve your successful business or save your failing business -- this course will help anyone at any level of the entrepreneurial journey. All of us residential industry professionals know our craft, but relatively few know how to run a successful business. The Elements of Building, by Mark Kerson, addresses that matter. The Elements of Building is a collection of easy-to-understand business principles for everyone involved in designing and building homes. This course is a Q&A between the author and AIBD's Executive Director Steve Mickley, including some questions by our live webinar audience. AIBD Members, enroll for free!
