$20 million for home improvement in Cincinnati
Fifth Third Bank is making a 20 million dollar investment in home improvement in Avondale- one of our largest neighborhoods.
This is part of a nationwide move to develop low-income black neighborhoods and improve living conditions. Avondale is one of 9 neighborhoods in the country that has received a similar grant.
It remains to be seen how exactly this money will be used. $20 million can go a long way for a lot of home improvement contractors- but we suspect much of the money will go to government contractors.
This is why all home improvement contractors should take pride in their work. When it comes to improving people’s lives, improving where they live can go a long way.

Should you scale up in 2022?
2022 looks like it will be a great year for home improvement contractors in Cincinnati.
If your business is going well, you may consider scaling up. But is it appropriate to do that? Are you prepared to scale up, and will you be happy you did it a year from now?
In this email, we’ll review a few questions you can ask yourself about your business, and yourself.
-Be clear on your goals before starting.
-Ask yourself: are you and your team ready?
Warren Buffet once said something to the effect of “It stops being fun once you have more than 10 employees.” He was half-joking. Scaling a business can change your life- and your bank account- but stress you out to high hell.
So, what are some indicators that you could make moves to scale up?
What should you look out for?
…If so, scaling will probably make your problems worse.
-Focus on profit, not pure revenue and sales.
Again, this is where it’s important to be clear with yourself. What are your goals for scaling? Do you have the means to handle more / larger jobs? Is your team (if you have one) ready for it, and can you rely on them?
You may start advertising more, hire more workers, and get more work. But, if you don’t scale efficiently, you may end up with lots of extra work… And only a bit of extra income. This happens when you have unreliable workers, unclear scopes with new customers, and a low referral rate. When this happens, you become a slave to your business- always putting in extra hours to pick up the slack for your team, get new bids, and communicate with customers and team members.
Remember, you’re the boss. Don’t let your business become the boss of you.
-Remember your mission:
Your success will come from satisfied customers referring friends, family, co-workers, and industry contacts.
It’s easy to get carried away by the extra work, the increased income, and the people management… And, it’s easy to forget about what matters most- the customer.
Even if they’re sometimes annoying, or inconsiderate, or even clueless, remember that your customer pays the bills. They’re your lifeblood, and they have the power to help you achieve the scale you want. Treat them like royalty, and they’ll pay you back in spades.
