246 | Ed Buset | The Biggest Things that Helped Me Build a $40 Million Contracting Business

Leaders Of Tomorrow Podcast

Sep 7 2021 • 57 mins

On today’s show, we interview Ed Buset of New City Contracting who shares with us how he transitioned from being a student painter to running a $40 million construction business.

Born to first-generation immigrants, Ed shares that he was born in a typical, hard-working Italian family. So, he grew up working odd jobs and quickly understanding the value of money.

Getting the Student Works internship helped him learn important foundational lessons in communication and cooperation – which helped him grow and scale his contracting business.

One of the main themes that we touch upon in today’s show is the importance of running a systemized and disciplined business.

As someone who works in the contracting space, Ed gives us a peek into his business philosophy which has catapulted him ahead of the competition. He also shares the importance of always completing a project – on schedule in this segment of the show.

Getting ISO has further helped Ed and his team run their operations in a systemized manner.

Other topics discussed on today’s show include the importance of diversity and continuous learning.

This is a show you do not want to miss.
