Here at CSLS our Instructors are often times asked for helpful tips on how to run a successful Construction business once a Contractor has earned his/her Contractors License. We love this question and typically will point our students in several directions to obtain the best tips. What we also do is suggest that our students follow best practices in developing a successful construction business. In doing so we found that many successful entrepreneurs maintain ongoing training and development to continuously sharpen the saw (no pun intended). In fact, an old quote says “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” With that said we have found most of our best book sellers are those that provide current Construction industry news, best practices, and tips. The construction profession is fortunate to have a multitude of counselors who are willing to share their insights with their peers. Above is Contractors State License Services/CSLS’ selection of the best books to read for any construction professional or for those that aspire to enter the construction profession. We have diligently outlined books to help you improve your construction business, skill-set, understanding, and increase your customer’s value in your construction business. The top 10 books plus the bonus book aims to provide valuable ideas and tips if applied correctly will help you increase your construction business effectiveness.
