Episode 325: Structuring a Construction Business For Growth with the Right Systems with Nolan Harris

Who doesn’t dream of expanding their construction business? We all do. Yet, along with expansion comes more significant challenges. Without the right systems, it’s easier to forget about scaling up. This was precisely the situation our guest found himself in.

In this week’s episode, Leyah Hostetter, our Director of Customer Success, sits down with Nolan Harris, the owner of Riviera Construction, who specializes in high-end custom homes and remodeling in Southern California. 

Nolan opens up about his bold decision to downsize and the driving force behind his re-expansion efforts. He also shares the transformative tools and systems he learned through our Systematize Your Construction Business (SYCB) program, how he effectively integrated these systems to streamline his business growth and much more.
