Logos of Buildertrend and Breakthrough Academy with text that reads "Your guide for growing your business to 8 figures - and beyond."

Becoming an eight-figure company, one that brings in anything between $10 million to $99 million, sounds like a goal only attainable for the very brightest and best builders. It’s a pipe dream. Something that’s out of reach for those just starting their construction business from scratch, right?

What if we were to tell you that’s wrong?

There are plenty of builders who were brand new to the industry just a decade ago and now have well over 100 projects under their belt. To get there, it takes plenty of hustle and hard work – but that’s not all.

If you want to start and grow your business to eight figures (and beyond!), you shouldn’t waste years testing marketing strategies and short-term tactics. You just need to learn what worked for other home builders who experienced explosive success. Ready to improve your bottom line? Let’s get right to it.

How to grow a construction business:

The key to growing a construction business all comes down to a singular word: processes. 

$10 million dollars doesn’t come overnight. That’s not news to anybody, especially those in an industry battling labor shortages and material delays. But you can start laying the path to get your business there today.
