How Tim Gets 20 Extra Inspections a Month From Writing

November 30, 2020

Tim is back with some amazing metrics and results! For only being in the business a few years, ranking 1st in Chicago is no small feat! He is a shining example of just how powerful content marketing is. He's proven it.

We talk about just taking action when it comes to writing (and anything really), not being a perfectionist with certain things, being an above average inspector and other little tips and stories.

Want to see what he's been writing about? Check out his website (psst, Spectora made it and we'd love to make yours too!)

Jamie is the guy that made a clever, unique video called "Will He Fit". Check it out, it's pretty funny.

Any new inspector that is this creative and just goes for it, I want to talk to. Jamie tells us his windy path to the home inspection industry and how he thinks about the business, just being in his first couple months.

If nothing else, just go for it and don't worry about what anyone else thinks!

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

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
