Is FEAR Holding YOU Back???
Andy Moore from Modern Oak Construction got his start like most everyone else in the residential contractor industry. He dug holes, and swept floors and worked his way up.
And now he is the owner of a building firm, and gets to do what he loves everyday.
For some time, FEAR was holding him back from asking investors to partner with him in the spec house market. But he overcame his fears, and asked them…
Now he gets to do what he only dreamed of a few short years ago.
Listen to his story, and be inspired today!
Here’s some introductory observations from the show:
- Sweeping and digging holes helped prepare him for greater things.
- Doing repetitive menial tasks lays the foundation for greater things to come.
- There is a catch-22 of owning your own business. It’s a bit scary on one hand, but very freeing and liberating on the other.
How he found investors for the spec house market in his area:
He found some investors and people with money who were willing to help him get started in the spec home industry. When asked how to go about finding investors willing to fund a spec house, Andy said, “Just Ask.” Which quickly became the theme of this show. Fear is the obstacle of asking. When you are passionate about something, and feel in your gut to go in a specific direction… then just ask.
Things that make Modern Oak different:
- Boutique builder
- Hands-on owner
- 1-on-1 w/clients
