Trying out a new tradesperson can be stressful. Multiply that by a factor of ten when the new trade is a general contractor. In this episode, Kimberley talks to her newest A team contractor, Ryan Rodrigues, about how to create a more efficient process as partners.

In this episode we learn:

  • make the big decisions, don’t ask your client to
  • bring your client solutions, not questions
  • it’s critical to stay ahead of the GC
  • don’t negotiate price with your contractor, educate the client or change the scope of work



Nothing comes easy. You have to work for it. Envision an end goal and chances are you’ll get there.
