Answer:

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

Chinese Proverb

Going deeper into this, here’s what is more typical for a construction business owner:

  • They have more parts and pieces in place than they think. They just haven’t put a lot of intentional thought into it much less put pencil to paper (or fingers to spreadsheet) to make a plan.
  • They need to find someone who can work like an architect for them and “pull” the plan out of them over a series of discussions and analysis. Someone who can help them turn their disparate ideas and fuzzy vision into a viable plan with clear action steps that are integrated with their business.
  • Business owners who know clearly what must be done for their retirement planning can integrate that with their business strategy and planning.
