Have you ever been surprised to find yourself ensnared in a maddening wrestling match with “the contractor from Hell”? If so, when did you first realize that the situation had spiraled woefully out of control?
Was it the time he stood you up for an important meeting, failing to keep yet another appointment with you?
Was it the time he called you at midnight to seek advance payment for the following day’s work, mentioning something about “labor costs” and “fuel expenses”?
Or was it, perhaps, the time he forgot to set his alarm while napping in his truck, shocking your sensibilities (and offending every respectable bone in your body) upon your first unannounced visit to the property?
Tragically, such frustrating scenarios are far too common in the world of home renovations and rehabbing. And although many contractors are happy to provide an honest day’s work in exchange for reasonable subsequent payments, it can sometimes seem as though there are ten bad apples for every good apple on the contracting tree.

FROM PRESTON ELY - MY PERSONAL DISCLAIMER TO YOU
Hi - we do everything in our power to run a good, clean business and help people succeed.
We've been in business for nearly a decade. Our mission is simple: help 1,000,000 people live lives of greater freedom. That's what gives us juice and passion.
Unfortunately, there are people and companies who do bad things and make products that don't work at all or don't work as advertised. That behavior hurts everyone.
The bottom line is there is no such thing as magic. There is no magic unicorn that will appear on your doorstep and start pooping gold bars or giving you free money.
Just because people in this program have made lots of money doesn't mean or imply the same will happen to you. In business, and in life, there are no guarantees.
Any one of the people who we happen to feature in this program have a BIG WHY - they want to make a difference and help themselves, their families, their employees and customers succeed. They want more and they apply themselves, they get outside of their comfort zones, acquire new skills, work like crazy, make mistakes, and fail, BUT THEY DON'T GIVE UP.
They implement. They don't quit. They serve. They didn't blame someone or something else for their mistakes or failures - instead, they do the HARD WORK that it takes to make a difference.
They use our tools, systems, psychology, mindset, training, community and events to succeed.
If you're the type of person that isn't willing to roll up your sleeves, learn, explore, grow and focus on helping other people succeed, our programs aren't for you.
If you're a blamer, whiner, malcontent, or just downright lazy, our programs aren't for you.
But if the content is this program and our videos resonate with you - and you can see the possibility and potential that this can work for you, then WELCOME HOME. You're in the presence of REAL PEOPLE who are helping REAL BUSINESSES succeed, thrive and survive.
It would be both mine and my team's pleasure and honor to serve and support you so you can EARN MORE, LIVE MORE and GIVE MORE.
Preston Ely, CEO
