Part 1 – By Ron Pestone
We at ELM Contractors Post.com are working to build a solid community of construction professionals and all those who wish to connect with them. ELM’s philosophy is based on the premise that if we make something better: a group, a profession, or an industry in the long run that positive contribution will benefit all including ELM. If there is one truth in life that clearly manifests itself on the internet it is that if you are willing to give something, make a contribution without expecting anything in return you as well as others will benefit in ways never contemplated. Simple and to the point that is our foundation.
We started with the blog itself, www.elmpost.com. Each week we publish at least one article that we believe will be of benefit to the industry we are dedicated to, construction. Titles of some of these articles are: BUILDING AND ORGANIZATION, WHO ARE THE REAL JOB CREATORS, WHEN TO WEAR A SUIT AND TIE and CONSTRUCTION CLAIMS. All these article are available on our blog 24-7 and can be found in Archives.
The blog also offers the construction news that is happening in the country and is a one stop shop if you are looking to get a feel for what is going on in the industry and what the current trends are.
In the section PRESS RELEASES we publish press releases you think are important for you and your company that you want the industry to know about. Simply go to CONTACT US on the blog and issue your press release which we will review and publish.
www.elmpost.com offers a free CLASSIFIED section where individuals and companies can place a no cost classified ad or ads. If you are looking for work, or looking to hire, have surplus tools or equipment you are looking to buy or sell. Have a service you are looking to promote or purchase or have anything this is construction related you can place it in our CLASSIFIEDS at no cost. Our CLASSIFIEDS cover a lot of ground and offer many who would normally not think we would publish their ad for free because it is not directly related to construction. Say you are selling shoes; you should not place an ad here unless you are selling construction shoes. It’s good as long as it’s good for our industry.
After a long hard journey our book, THE BOOK OF ELM, VOLUME 1, COMMON SENSE SUBCONTRACTIN WITH ELM JOB COSTINE & MORE will be coming out this summer. We have worked very hard to make this the best book possible on job costing. The book details a simple and effective method of job costing that really works and one that every subcontractor should read. It is a proven method employed in millions of dollars of subcontracting contracts. The blog will publish useful excerpts from the book and there will be a section in the blog where the book can be ordered.
WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO AT ELM CONTRACTORS POST. COM We have spent considerable time and effort in these last months developing a new feature for the blog that has never been done before in the construction industry. We believe this feature is a game changer and will benefit everyone who makes a living in the construction industry. It is our opinion that it is way overdue. We ask all our readers to be patient with us as we go through the final stages before releasing it.
On the one hand we are very excited about the new feature and would love to tell everyone about it while on the other hand we are afraid to let the big cat out of the bag before she is ready because as everyone knows it’s a lot harder to get a big cat back in the bag then it is to her out of the bag. We promise one thing; as soon as she’s ready she is coming out of the bag. Stay tuned, this is not hype this is a game changer.
Remember: We Build America
