I’m really excited about today’s episode, because my guest Jeremy has a very unique perspective as someone who is involved from the beginning of a construction project to completion. When issues arise, Jeremy springs to action and helps all parties involved figure things out, to the benefit of everyone involved.
Jeremy is a material representative for the largest building materials supplier in California, and what he shares in this episode is a behind-the-scenes perspective of the process from someone with his boots on the ground.

Ideas Worth Sharing:“I love being in the process from start to finish. As a contractor, you can come in at the 11th hour, or you can be in at the beginning.
