We work “Mach 5 with our hair on fire” for decades, putting in 50-90 hours per week. We love the industry and want to stay involved.

You can retire from the business without retiring from the industry. Your expertise and passion can continue to bring advancement to the industry in many ways. A successful Retirement Masterpiece could include any of the following:

  • Become a board member for another company in the business. Leverage prior relationships with GCs and subcontractors to help them move their company forward.
  • Become a member of an association that serves the industry. There are associations for subcontractors, general contractors, women owned, veteran owned, small business, local business, and many other types of contractors. Get involved to help with legislative efforts on a local, regional, or national level.
  • Become an adjunct faculty member or a guest expert lecturer at a local college or university. Turn your past experience and expertise into classroom exercises and lectures.
  • Become an expert witness.
  • Become a consultant. Work with a diverse number of contractors, helping them to achieve success and prepare their organization for the next generation.

Responsibility and Compensation
If you want to grow your career, always seek additional responsibility while pushing your limits in every way to produce business results. The compensation will always follow.
Balancing Modes of Prioritization and Career Progression
If your workload prioritization seems impossible, try looking at it from a higher-level of prioritization. We all must prioritize in life and at work. Our outcomes are heavily impacted by how effective we are at prioritization.
