Buying or Building Your Home Service Business 🚧

The choice is yours.

To Buy or Build: The Dilemma

Hey guys,

Welcome to a special guest edition of the newsletter! This is Jack Carr, subbing in for John this week and ready to talk about an age-old question:

Should you buy or build a home service business? The answer boils down to your tolerance for risk, but both come along with pros, cons, and distinct advantages.

I would know. I bought first instead of built, and I’ll share what I learned in that process.

Was this forwarded to you?

One thing we’ve built is a cool Facebook group for listeners of the podcast and readers of the newsletter. It’s been a growing group of owners on Facebook for the last two months and cool to see it expand.

There are well over 300 members now and growing each day, and it’s been a great place to beat the isolation our industry often brings.

If you join now then you’ll be ready to take part in John’s live stream Q&A coming up this Wednesday, July 3 at 2 p.m. EST.

As someone who has experienced both sides, let me walk you through the pros and cons of each approach and why I chose to buy rather than build.
