To register for this member benefit, simply follow the steps below.

2. Click on Redeem Your BPA in the landing page toolbar

3. Select “HBA Members” and fill out the short questionnaire

SBGP only works with HBA members, is entirely private, and works with over 25% of the HBAs in the United States.
The HBA highly recommends that you take advantage of a BPA, especially if you don’t have a clear (and documented) plan for your business for 2021.

​If you are unclear if you would benefit from a BPA, here is a short list of the issues where members have received significant benefit…You are considering Succession Planning

  • You have hit a growth ceiling, where lack of systems is starting to show in your company with mistakes, and miscommunication (internally, and with customers and prospects)
  • You aren’t clear on a strategic direction for your company (nor are your employees)
  • You can’t seem to find the right people, and are having team cohesion issues
  • You get a lot of calls, but not many turn into sales
  • You are generating great sales, but the profit is not there at the end of the month
  • You are trying to drive the business forward, but keep getting pulled back into the daily operations, and still act as the chief “firefighter” and problem solver
  • You are becoming burnt out, working more and seeming to accomplish less

They will also incorporate up to 10 DISC/Motivator assessment reports for you and your management team with the creation of your BPA. These cost over $300 each if you had to purchase them yourself.

Let’s Resolve to Make Our Business Stronger in 2022!

 

Studies show that having a plan for your business, especially at the beginning of a year, greatly increases your ability of success.  If you don’t know where you are going, any path will get you there.

Our top goal is to help your businesses thrive. Also, to educate and inform all of you on the full breadth of benefits included in your member benefits. I’m sure many of you have heard about the BPA from Small Business Growth Partners or know of another member who has taken advantage of it. To boil it down for you, here are a few things we have learned about SBGP, through all of the direct feedback I’ve received personally from members…

      • The BPA is a great “roadmap” to get all of your ideas (and many generated by SBGP) into a clear, concise, and actionable plan.
      • They really know the industry, and our members could tell. They specialize in the building, remodeling, plumbing, HVAC/Electrical and HBA trade industries, and have worked with over 1,000 HBA members since 2008.
      • The DISC/Motivator Assessment that is provided through the BPA has been a big hit with members. Very eye-opening for all that have reached out to me.

Finally, they only work with HBA members, are entirely private, and work exclusively with over 40% of the HBAs in the United States (they do not work with the general public).

So, if you are yet to explore this new CAHB member benefit, I’d highly recommend taking advantage of a BPA, especially if you don’t yet have a clear (and documented) plan for your business for 2022. I’ve also attached some information to give you more details on what is included in a BPA.

To make it easier for you to make a decision, here are a handful of challenges a BPA solves…

      • You have hit a growth ceiling, where lack of systems is starting to show in your company with mistakes, and miscommunication (internally, and with customers and prospects) 
      • You aren’t clear on a strategic direction for your company (nor are your employees)
      • You can’t seem to find the right staff and are having team cohesion issues
      • You are considering Succession Planning
      • You get a lot of calls, but not many turn into sales
      • You are generating great sales, but the profit is not there at the end of the month
      • You are trying to drive the business forward, but keep getting pulled back into the daily operations, and still act as the chief “firefighter” and problem solver
      • You are becoming burnt out, working more and seeming to accomplish less

Once again, an annual BPA is included 100% through your CAHB Member Benefits (A $4,200 value).

HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING GREAT EMPLOYEES?

 

One of the biggest challenges for our members right now is finding great employees. It is hard to grow or even maintain a business without the ability to add new employees. One of the challenges is those good employees, the ones you want to hire, are already working for someone else. 

Through the Colorado Association of Home Builders (CAHB) partnership with Small Business Growth Partners (SBGP), they have agreed to build the specific best practices they have implemented for their clients into all of their Business Diagnostic & Plan of Actions (BPAs) for CAHB members through January 1st, 2022. The BPA gives you a detailed roadmap of the actions you need to take to make your business the best it can be in good times AND in the most challenging times. 

By working with hundreds of construction, plumbing, HVAC, Electrical, and HBA Associate businesses in 14 states, they have honed their skills as a private coaching company to help our members survive and thrive, ESPECIALLY in trying times like we are experiencing at the moment. 

Since we anticipate an extremely high response for BPAs considering the current situation, the scheduling of these special BPAs will be first come, first served.

 Our top goal is to help your businesses prosper. So, if you are yet to explore this member benefit, I’d highly recommend taking advantage of a BPA. If you haven’t yet built a plan to find and keep great employees, now is the time to request a BPA. 

Succession Planning: Is the Next Generation Ready to Take the Reigns?

Let CAHB Help You Get a Plan in Place in Time for 2021

An annual BPA is included 100% through your CAHB Member Benefits ($4,200 value)

​The BPA (Business Diagnostic & Plan of Actions) will give you a clear roadmap to help your kids or key employees methodically take over the business, but most importantly, help institute processes and procedures to ensure they succeed as you back away from day-to-day operations. Look at this as an “insurance policy” to make sure the hard work and perseverance you but into building your business doesn’t go to waste, and the business is able to maintain it’s sales, consistency and profitability it did under your leadership.

Even if you aren’t quite ready now, a BPA will lay the groundwork for what would need to happen to make an eventual smooth transition a reality.

It is not just a two or three-page summary, but an in-depth analysis of your business including…

  • Planning, both long and short-term, so you have a roadmap for the business
  • Marketing and sales plan so you know what projects are ideal for your business
  • Team and people so you have the right people in the right seats, all rowing in the same direction
  • Financials and scorecards so you have a dashboard for your business to see how you’re doing at-a-glance
  • Actions and accountability so you know what needs to be done and when and by who

This should only take you 2-3 minutes, and once you have registered, an SBGP representative will reach out to schedule an introductory call to explain the BPA, the BPA Process and answer any other questions you may have.
