successful general contractorBuilding a successful general contractor business in Florida requires dedication and planning. The first step to building your business is to obtain your general contractors license by taking the Florida General Contractors exam. After you take the exam, you must apply for your FL general contractors license by sending in an application and proof that you meet the requirements for your license. Once you obtain your Florida contractors license, you can begin to build you business.

Before you start your general contractor business in Florida, read through these three tips on how to make your business successful:

1. Be passionate.
This tip may seem cliché, but the truth is that building a successful general contractor business in Florida takes time and energy. If you don’t have the passion to do this, or if you are just doing it for the money, you might find yourself lacking the strength to continue. Earning your general contractors license in Florida requires hours of studying and years of experience – and that’s just the first step to opening your business. You must have passion to make it in this industry.

2. Build a solid foundation of support.
Building your business is just like building a home – the most important part is the foundation. The foundation of your contractors business must be rooted in a solid group of friends and professional advisors to help you make the right choices to lead your business to success. Without a solid foundation of support, you might find yourself trying to carry the weight of the business on your own two shoulders.

3. Surround yourself with powerful, good people.
Along with your foundation of support, you must surround yourself with people who will advise you and lead you in the right direction with your business. Even when studying for your FL contractors license, you need people who will help you study and motivate you to do the best you can. The saying goes, “you will be as successful as your five closest friends.” Make sure the five people in your circle are helping you find the success you desire.
