Online PR News – 11-May-2019 – Arlington, TX – The Aspire Institute has announced a new business education event exclusively for Residential General Contractors.

Prosper Through the Next Recession is a one-day event that will provide a proven, real world, roadmap for General Contractors to begin the important process of making the necessary business adjustments now that will insulate them from the next recession.

What Recession?

While a recent Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University report forecasts robust growth in the home building industry in 2019 (Read the full report here), but when it comes to economic cycles, nothing lasts forever.

According to Fred Farris, Aspire's CEO, "No one can reliably time economic cycles, however, most reliable sources and indicators are clear that we are getting closer to an economic downturn. We are, in fact, now in the longest period of expansion in history. While we all hope it goes on forever, at Aspire we do not believe hope is the best strategy."

Bad News / Good News

Brent Baker, Aspire's Director of Coaching adds, "We don't know when, but the fact is we know it's coming. The problem for GCs is that it takes at least a year to make the necessary business adjustments that will allow them to prosper through it. The good news is that most of these adjustments are the same adjustments GCs need to make to generate better profits, NOW, during the good times."

Real World - Been There - Done That - Solutions

The Prosper Through the Next Recession workshop will outline real world case studies and detailed proven strategies and methods that helped GCs prosper through the last recession in 2008, along with how to incorporate the 5 Key Lessons learned during that time that will shield a GC business today from potential business damage when the next recession comes.
