You Don’t Have to Start Big, You Just Have to Start

For some, building a reputable and profitable commercial roofing business may seem overwhelming or too distant of a goal to truly pursue. Since any successful business is a lofty ambition, it’s easy to see it as requiring lots of time and attention. Growth in the commercial roofing industry is very much an organic process, and people can easily get the impression that big steps are needed to really go anywhere.

Whether someone is a veteran roofing professional or a budding entrepreneur, that perception can be paralyzing. It’s potent enough to stop many people from taking that first critical step toward something greater.

For roofing contractors, that could mean lost opportunities in business growth, development of key business networks, and more. Of course, that means there will be lost opportunities that could have come from achieving those company benchmarks, too.

Wouldn’t it be nice if one were able to shunt their misgivings aside and start taking action? Well, it can happen—all it takes is a matter of readjusting perception, and then being ready to take the plunge.

Getting Started is What Matters

Starting a roofing businessWhen it comes to building a business or enhancing your bottom line with a new service offering, the most important thing to keep in mind is not “starting big”, but rather just “getting started”. It’s easy to see a big enterprise as requiring action that’s also big to get jumpstarted. But that action can ultimately be reduced down to a series of small steps, or things to be accomplished over time.

As a roofing contractor accomplishes small tasks and moves things forward, that effort begins to pay off. The goal of becoming highly profitable doesn’t seem so distant anymore. Differences in the quality of each workday become more noticeable on a daily basis. Bit-by-bit, steadfast concentration on completing the small steps for the day eventually leads to company highlights and additional, bigger company goals. All it requires is keeping it simple and slowly building one’s way toward the benchmark they hope to achieve.

How Does This Apply in Commercial Roofing?

For a roofing contractor, big company goals can be obtaining a commercial roof that is 100,000 square feet or larger, reaching $10 million a year in sales, achieving a professional distinction with the product brand they use, nailing a big contract, or being recognized for their company’s growth.

However, whether an individual is a savvy commercial roofing professional or someone who is new-to-the-chase, those goals can’t be attained without initiating action to achieve them. It’s easy to stay focused on the size, uncertainty, and risks of what you want, but if you don’t even begin the efforts toward getting it, that’s non-productive and only stalling.

Regardless of its scope or demands, any goal can be reduced to terms of “yes” and “no”. You can’t get any more “no” than what you already have by not starting. Getting started is truly everything!

In commercial roofing, stories such as Sam Hostetler’s rags-to-riches tale are an indicator of where hard work, determination, and grit can lead.
