Cohost: Al Levi from Appleseed Business

Series Overview.

Al Levi, author of ‘The 7 Power Contractor’ returns to the microphone once again to invest his time and knowledge into educating us all about the vast business knowledge he has acquired over the years. Al has been an amazing asset to The Site Shed podcast, already appearing in the following episodes, which you should definitely go check out.

We get to learn about about Al and his background as a plumber in New York City in this podcast.
Episode 46. From A-B with Al Levi

The ‘Powering Your Business’ Series offers an amazing insight into three of the seven specific areas of business that Al teaches in his book, ‘The 7 Power Contractor’.
Episode 56. Planning Power
Episode 57. Operating Power
Episode 58. Staffing Power

In this series, Al is teaching us all about family business and why so few of them work out.
Al grew up working in a family business with his Dad and his two older brothers in Long island, New York and like any family run business, he experienced problems. It was these experiences that led him to develop amazing processes around making family businesses run optimally.
This is first hand knowledge, from a very experienced expert.

Episode 3. Who’s steering the ship?

In the first two episodes, we discussed the importance of both creating an organisational chart and then defining the roles of everyone within the organisation.

In this episode, Al talks about the importance of everybody understanding what direction the ship is heading in.
If employees and family by into the same goal, then they’re all on board in working towards that goal, however if there is a one person making that decision, then it’s likely that everyone else will not share the same passion towards achieving that goal.

Al is a master at communicating to every person the significance of what they do in the bigger picture. By doing this effectively, he’s able to build a culture rich with accountability and drive.

Check out episode one on setting an Org Chart.
Check out episode two on Defining Roles.

Great work Matt with all the podcasts and the site shed facebook community group. The amount of information that you can learn for free in this space is unbelieveable. It's great to see like minded contractors and trades trying to improve their businesses and also share ideas and help others. Highly recommend. Thanks!

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
