Construction Junction Roundtable Explained
We’ve mentioned a few times in our social channels that the founder and owner of The Profit Constructors, Tonya Schulte, is also the Construction Junction Roundtable host. And if you’re a construction business accounting pro, you may be wondering what that’s all about.
In my capacity as the Office Mom for The Profit Constructors, it seemed to me that it was time to “tell-all.” Listen up.
So, I guess that you know what a roundtable is. And you likely know what a junction is. As for construction – yeah, you know what that is too. Construction Junction Roundtable is the (some say magical – I say practical) place where the intersection of Construction and Accounting occurs and businesses are improved.
It’s a Place
It’s a monthly place you get to from the comfort and privacy of your office, no matter the location of that office. Your Zoom capabilities are your only limitations.
It’s a Special Destination
Construction Junction Roundtable is designed for both the accounting staff of construction contractors and independent construction-centric accounting professionals. In plain English – when you crunch numbers for the construction crowd, you are unique. And having a twice-monthly gathering with other specialists is invigorating, refreshing, and uplifting. (And a whole lot of different things, which I will mention on this page.)
It’s a School
Only in the best sense of the word, Construction Junction Roundtable is a school. It’s not tests, quizzes, and busy work. It’s about upping your game by being pushed to think differently and broaden your skills, methods, or know-how.
It could be as simple as learning one or more basic business skills. Or, on another day, it might be learning how to avoid a common mistake.
Think Peer-to-Peer Mentoring. In some cases, you gain an outside perspective and, on other days, uncomplicated clarity. Plus, there are times when you’re the peer helping others gain in one way or another.
Discussion topics might range from “I have a new app I’m looking at; what is your experience with it?” to “I have had such a bad week, I’m not sure where to go from here.”
It’s a Clinic
Just as in those occasions when more than a Band-Aid is needed and a clinic offers comfort and assurance, Construction Junction members are available at the twice-monthly meetings to help their peers. They do so by addressing business problems in savvy and encouraging ways.
Not only is there a place to use the meetings as a sounding board, but there is also the opportunity for members to unburden themselves from day-to-day issues.
The bottom line is there is a spirit of cooperation and resource sharing among members.
It’s an Easier Way
Here are a few things Construction Junction Roundtable members seek for themselves or offer to help others find:
Insight into the ability to define and articulate goals
Gentle yet firm accountability
Information concerning moving a business forward (and possibly) in new directions
Access to resources
Encouragement to make actionable improvements
Achievement of a better work-life balance
Collective Wisdom and Experience
The important thing is that Construction Junction Roundtable members can leverage their fellow members’ collective wisdom and experience. And they have the opportunity to include their knowledge, background, and business savvy into the mix, thereby helping others.
Construction Junction Roundtable allows members the opportunity to accomplish much through association with accomplished people. Need I say more?
