About the Podcast

Welcome to Builder Stories, the podcast where builders, remodelers, and contractors share their personal and business journeys.

Many small to mid-sized construction businesses are great at their trades but not always equally business savvy. Come learn from the stories of successful entrepreneurs who share how they got started, how they found success, and the lessons learned along the way.
