Becoming the Chick-Fil-A of Home Inspections - Nick Wright

Becoming the Chick-Fil-A of Home Inspections - Nick Wright

November 18, 2020

Nick is a another Spectora OG that has grown phenomenally over his 5 or so years in business.

He has a great story about deciding to get into this business in 2 days and quit his job and jumped in.

We talk about the hustle of drumming up business before you're ready, putting the customer experience FIRST, not being the cheap guy in your market, and how to be unique in this business.

If you're enjoying these interviews, share them with your home inspector community! This is what keeps me doing these.

How Vulnerability and Authenticity Win - Dave Adams

How Vulnerability and Authenticity Win - Dave Adams

October 26, 2020

How vulnerable and transparent are you? Did you ever think it could help transform your business?

I'm certainly a believer after meeting Dave Adams. From sharing stories about a divorce to having his leg amputated, he is all in on being vulnerable and authentic. And it's working.

Just one look at his website and you can tell - he owns who he is.

Donuts > Certifications - John Battaglia

Donuts > Certifications - John Battaglia

October 13, 2020

Do you think you're the greatest inspector that ever lived? Then this episode is for you.

John wasn't sure if he even wanted to be a multi-inspector company. Then he kinda just turned into one! Now his growth is continuing and he's picking up a ton of lessons on the way.

We also talk about the importance of what IEB is doing for our industry and the key lessons he's learned from working with them.

John is all about collaboration so reach out to him! https://www.ateaseinspections.net/

To Grow or Not to Grow - Efficiency and Staying Lean - Zac Knoblauch

To Grow or Not to Grow - Efficiency and Staying Lean - Zac Knoblauch

September 28, 2020

Zac could be a multi-inspector firm already. He's just not sure if that's what he wants. And that's ok. Zac is part of a new wave of inspectors that are in their first 5 years and growing nicely. He is efficient and knows the "time is money" saying is more than a cliche. He lives it.

 

We talk about efficiency - using the software to get reports done more efficiently and using Spectora Advanced to reduce the need to hire office staff (30-40 min saved per inspection!).

 

We talk about answering your own phone - the same dilemma everyone faces when they get to hundreds of inspections a year.

 

We talk about mentors and peers in the industry. I have a feeling some will be reaching out to him after this one!

 

Find Zac at this website https://rigidinspections.com/ or on Instagram, @rigidinspections

Falling Off Roofs & Raising Prices - KC Bartley

Falling Off Roofs & Raising Prices - KC Bartley

August 11, 2020

I've never had an interaction with KC that didn't leave me energized and happy. He is just a ball of positivity and I love it. KC is a Spectora OG and has some great stories and conviction in who he is, and what his company stands for. 

 

With one of the best websites around and hundreds of Google Reviews, he shares a little on how he runs a very efficient 1-man shop.

Inside the Mind of a COO of a 70 Inspector Company - Damon Durham

Inside the Mind of a COO of a 70 Inspector Company - Damon Durham

August 4, 2020

Damon is a humble man. He is the COO of the largest inspection company in the country and he speaks so casually about very difficult things.

 

Damon is somewhat from outside the home inspection industry - that's why he intrigued me. He has a fresh perspective, some of which traces back to his early days at Pizza Hut where he learned about service, pride and efficiency.

 

If you want to learn more about Greenworks, head over to their website. I'm sure you can get in touch with Damon there.
