Members: New Benefit Provides Free Business Analysis and Planning

Has the poor weather this year that got you behind on jobs leaving little time to do 2020 business planning? Are you wanting to grow your business but wonder if your efforts are on track? If you answer yes to these or similar questions about running your business, now is the time to sign up for a free Home Builders Association of Iowa (HBAI) benefit called Small Business Growth Partners (SBGP) that could make all the difference. 

SBGP is a national and private firm that specializes in working with state home building associations and focuses on helping grow builders, remodelers and HBA Associate member businesses. The company uses an exclusive Business Diagnostic and Plan of Actions (BPA) tool to perform a customized analysis of all aspects of your business and then develops a highly researched, clear and actionable 30-plus page “road map” for you to follow. SBGP is currently conducting a pilot program for HBAI, testing the BPA with 50 member businesses to explore if the offering should become a permanent HBAI benefit.

“I’ve had more members contact me about this benefit than any other we have brought into HBAI,” said HBAI Executive Officer Jay Iverson. “They really know the industry, and our members who have participated could tell.” 

Who Will Get the Most from a BPA?

Below are several business scenarios SBGP and the BPA can solve:

  • You have hit a growth ceiling, where lack of systems is starting to show in your company with mistakes, and miscommunication (internally, and with customers and prospects). 
  • You aren’t clear on a strategic direction for your company (nor are your employees).
  • You can’t seem to find the right staff and are having team cohesion issues.
  • You are considering Succession Planning.
  • You get a lot of calls, but not many turn into sales.
  • You are generating great sales, but the profit is not there at the end of the month.
  • You are trying to drive the business forward, but keep getting pulled back into the daily operations and still act as the chief “firefighter” and problem solver.
  • You are becoming burnt out, working more and seeming to accomplish less.

Greater Iowa City Area HBA member Wayne Winn of Home Town Restyling in Hiawatha is a believer. “As an owner for 33 years, starting from scratch and building (my business to) 9 million in sales, I can’t begin to imagine where we would have been if we’d crossed paths with (Small Business) Growth Partners five years ago. If you are open minded, honest with yourself and looking to grow professionally and personally, they have the right team,” said Wayne.
