Many contractors reduce the amount they charge per hour to avoid confrontation about labor rates. This reduces their profits because their expenses remain the same. They end up paying themselves little and having spouses who work the books for no pay.
Most consumers think T&M stands for Too Much as in Too Much cost to them and Too Much profit to you.
This seminar will show companies how to break down and understand their billable hour efficiency, their cost of doing business, their breakeven costs and the difference between a margin method and a markup method when pricing a job. It is our firm belief that understanding any and all of these discussion items will return your cost of attending in a matter of days.
THE GAME PLAN
1. What are billable hours and why are they important?
2. What does break even mean and how do we calculate it?
3. Proper Pricing Methods?
4. How to keep score and why that is so important.
