September Trivia 

Don't forget to turn in your answers to this week's question by Friday at 5 p.m. EDT for a chance to win a FREE registration!

Week 2 Answer
The answer to last week's trivia question is:
"The Washington Monument"

Mills studied under James Hoban, an Irishman who designed the White House. Mills won a competition in 1836 to design this iconic monument, though construction on it wasn't completed until almost 30 years after he died in 1855. He also designed the General Post Office in D.C., which we accepted as an answer.

Week 3 Question
This sea fort, located in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, is an American landmark steeped in history. However, there is one particular event that makes this fort such a significant location - it is recognized as the place where the first shots of the Civil War were fired. What is the name of the fort where this occurred?

Best Ways to Structure, Manage and Support Your Sales Team to Maximize Sales

Hosted by Bill Silverman, Springboard Business Coaching 
 

It's common for painting businesses above the million dollars to have more than one (and sometimes several) people involved in sales and estimating. And when you do, your role must shift from sales and estimator to sales manager (at least part time).

The question that we're going to discuss in this month's roundtable is what is the best ways to ensure the success of your sales team?

The challenges are many:

  • How best to build and structure your sales team as you grow?
  • What training, support and tools do they need to be successful?
  • What's the best way manage them to maximize your company's sales?
  • What are the best tools for you to use to manage your sales people effectively?

Please join Bill Silverman from Springboard Business Coaching for our next Million Dollar + Owners' Group Discussion on Tuesday, September 16th at 1:00 Eastern where we will explore all of these topics and many more when we discuss Best Ways to Structure, Manage and Support Your Sales Team to Maximize Sales.

 

You'll walk away from this discussion with information you can use right away

PDCA Monthly Webinar

September 17th, 2014 | 2pm PT, 3pm MT, 4pm CT, 5pm ET

Business Tune-Up Series - How to Bid More Competitively on Government Construction
 

Presented by Karen DeMontigny, Fringe Benefit Group

Government projects offer tremendous opportunity for painting and decorating contractors and their employees. But competition for these jobs is fierce and government auditors are making sure that contractors are compliant with the Davis-Bacon Act, state prevailing wage laws and the new healthcare legislation. Contractors bidding on government jobs understand that in order to win more bids they need to maximize efficiencies, reduce costs and maintain compliance - while cutting every possible dollar from their bids. Contractors who bid and work on public works jobs should be focused on implementing a benefits strategy that will meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We can help you choose benefits plans that work for your business and your employees and satisfy applicable laws. This presentation will educate attendees about staying compliant with government regulations and bidding more competitively while providing quality benefits to their employees. Presenter will have access to attendee list.
