Managing risk in the construction industry
By Nate Budde
The construction industry is full of risks, from personal safety risks on construction sites, to financial risks and risks of business failure. Construction projects have several tiers, and every tier faces its own unique challenges and specific risks. While the risk of nonpayment is fairly universal in construction, the way that risk is shifted between parties and the tug-of-war to accomplish that financial risk-shifting provides interesting insights into the actual apportionment of risk in the construction industry.

Home renovations reflect modern lifestyles
Steven Kaplan said he wasn't looking to save on his utility bills when he added an outdoor cooking space to his Demarest home. Inspired by his family's love for the food they tasted on a trip to Italy, followed by repeated trips to a restaurant that featured a traditional wood-fired oven, Kaplan wanted an outdoor kitchen with his own traditional pizza oven.

Change the behavior of your negative, underperforming technicians
By Roger Daviston
The boss almost gave up on one of our plumbers, Mike. His average invoice was terrible at $400. He made excuses and blamed his circumstances. He was negative, and his attitude was that "life sucks." Mike thought nothing could change for him, and we were ready to let him go. However, one day while doing a ride-along with Mike, I recommended that he listen to "The Strangest Secret" by Earl Nightingale, a renowned motivational speaker. Mike listened and began to make changes, too. I was shocked and amazed to see his transformation.
