What our clients say about working with us
"We all have room for improvement no matter where we are in business or in life. FBI has been a great help to us, and it was eye opening where we needed to improve! If more contractors could just get a taste of the peer group/roundtable atmosphere, they would be hooked. Our peer group meetings are one of the most valuable times spent during the year. The ideas generated in each meeting are mind boggling, and they propel us to that next level. If someone ever says anything negative about a peer group, they are not putting in the time to yield the proper results."Kent Bounds
"Just finished our best year ever. Revenue up about 20%, profit up about 60%. Went through an extremely extensive third party audit just a few weeks ago, the highest level of most respected audit company in our industry. I was kicked out during the process (by the employees) as well as my son. I was amazed to find we scored 100%. We are far from perfect, however the auditor spent a lot of time on the floor talking to almost every employee and thought we were special. This would not have happened if we had not contacted the Family Business Institute and had them come in to work with us, and we listened. Thank you Wayne and your organization."RJ Reed
