Thank you so kindly once again for opening your beautiful River House up to me this week.  It truly is a great place to open up your mind and plan for the upcoming year.  I greatly enjoyed getting input from yourself and Dave, as we get ready to tackle this next year.  Carol does a fantastic job of making me feel right at home with her well-prepared delicious meals as well.

I would like to make a very profound and personal statement. You, Dan and Ken helped us have a child. I joke about this with Dan all the time. This is humorous but in many ways very true. Let me explain in more detail and I am sure you will understand.

The main reason we signed up with Business Mentors was not to make more money, but to get the business operating efficiently so we could someday have a family. In my eyes, the most important thing in the world is to be a good parent. The way I lived before the Mentors program I could not have been a good father. You and your team have provided me with the tools and ideas to make things work effectively so that I could accomplish my goal of becoming a father. Read more...

Mark W. Broersma
Disaster Response Team
Panama City, Florida

I just wanted to write you a note, to compliment your company, advice and our advisor Dave. The 12 month consulting program did not give us the magic pill to solve all of our problems, but it really helped to focus our energies in our business. Being a partnership the leadership you gave in delegating authority and creating a management plan has been a tremendous help in the operation of our company.

I know most prospects are looking for hard numbers to justify the investment in your services, well just from the ideas we put together in the first year our construction division went from a margin of less than 20% to 37.8%. This new margin includes a new superintendants salary that was not there before our implementation of the plan.  

Not all of the process was fun but it was valuable. I would tell any prospects of yours if you are just looking for magic go somewhere else but if you are looking for a solid plan and direction Business Mentors is the place. Thank your for your friendship and discipline.  p.s. Dave is the best, keep him around!

I want you to know that I have truly been blessed by all of your efforts throughout the last 3 years. Our company has grown in both sales volume and profits but more importantly it has become a place of work that my employees and I appreciate being a part of. The buy in that has been created in this place is amazing and with out your help and efforts we could not have achieved this.

I told Jeff and Ken three years ago that my #1 goal was to "have a life outside of my business." This has been achieved and my family and I are grateful for this. We are a happier family than we have been in quite some time and I can't thank you enough for your part in that.  Read more...

David Heitman
MCR #19029
Owner, Perfection Cleaning & Restoration

In the last 5 years our company has grown from $3 million to over $12 million in sales. We have found one of the biggest challenges is to properly manage the growth. Without proven systems, procedures and measurements in place you can spend an enormous amount of time and money trying to achieve them.

Business Mentors has the experience to help you recognize areas of your company that may need improvement and will provide solutions that are applicable immediately. They have everything you need from how the work should flow to the systems and procedures to handle any size work load efficiently. They also help you to understand how to use your financials to make intelligent business decisions. Read more...

Josh and Justin
Alliance Disaster Kleenup

I wanted to provide an update on our progress and recent activities. I have been pushing really hard to generate more business and continue to foster the changing focus (sales vs. production) within the company. Overall, I think that we have been very successful doing so. All teams and employees are operating mostly independent as we have truly given them the keys and clearly laid out the plan. We have been fully committed to providing them tools they need to be successful within their positions and professions... all the while, making the company bigger, better and more profitable. Within the company everyone understands and feels a sense of pride knowing that they are accountable to themselves first, their teammates second and the company third. Even if the money didn't pile in during 2009, at least we revived our company to become a functioning organization, where people have opportunity and our service to the community is honest and appropriate. It's a beautiful thing!!! Thank you for showing us the light!!!  Read more...

I had a truly great trip out to Oregon last week. You guys are blessed with a great atmosphere out there, and your river house is truly a little bit of heaven on earth. I enjoyed our great conversations and your input on business. I am very pleased with the progress that David and your company have allowed me to make this past year, and look forward to the coming year. We have come along way in making my company grow both from a infrastructure standpoint and as well as noticing some growth in sales. This next year is shaping up to be a real fun one, that is better positioned for growth.

I want to take a moment and thank you, Phil Jr., Ken Tucker and David Ellings. All of you have been a pleasure to meet and talk with over these years. Phil, I want to thank you for pairing us up with David. He has been a good fit for us. K David was able to make a connection with Kelly which allowed us to move and grow our company using the building blocks that Business Mentors has developed.
 
Although, I know Business Mentors is first and foremost a company for profit, I admire you for the vision and passion that you bring to companies like ours, in the restoration field. I have looked at numerous mentoring companies prior to going with Business Mentors and I feel I made the best choice. Everyone there was or still is connected to the Restoration Industry and the knowledge you provide is pertinent and invaluable. You have brought my company a long way in a short time and for that, I Thank You.

I want you to know that you have created a cheerleader. I will always tell anyone that will listen, that if they want to grow their company and are unsure of how to do so, then there is only one company to call BUSINESS MENTORS…  Again, Phil I want to say thank you so much for what you have done for us.

I bought this mid size restoration business 4 years ago, in the heart of twenty competitors.  I thought growing this business would be a breeze.  I also use to think there was nothing to owning and operating your own business.  I was so wrong.  Things took off in the beginning and it took all my energy and focus to make each job profitably.   Work started to slow and then I had time to examine the whole owning a business process.  The reports, paperwork, financials and employee needs were pulling me in every direction, except growing my company.  Read more...

Marc J Lalonde
President
, MJL/SCS DISASTER KLEENUP

The decision to hire Business Mentors was made a little over a year ago and was based in part on our ongoing process of merging two companies. Both companies had been involved in insurance restoration, one with cleaning and the other contracting. The merger was to create one, “Full Service Restoration Company”, out of two companies that had worked together for approximately 20 years in a contractor/subcontractor relationship. Other issues that contributed to the decision to hire Business mentors related to dwindling profits and increased demands for technical and marketing strategies in an ever-changing work environment.  Read more...

Mark Springer
Vice President
Dayspring Restoration Inc.

I am writing today to express my thanks and gratitude for your company and our relationship. As you are well aware, when we first hired Business Mentors we were struggling with a variety of issues related to our growth. The first was a lack of accountability and measurement of our staff. This was very frustrating to me both professionally and personally. I felt as though I was nothing but a grownup babysitter. Our workmanship was good and our people were technically competent but for some reason we were getting killed by the details. Read more...

Disaster Kleenup of Rockford 

Donna and I want you, Phil Jr., Ken, and Dave, to know how much we appreciate your care and guidance. Words alone can not express what Business Mentors has done for our company.  Our business growth was at a stand still. I knew we needed change, but I did not know how to take LDR to the next level. Once I got past the “fear” of some one else examining our business practices, I knew we needed Business Mentors. Read more...

Sun Country Restoration

We decided to use the services of your company, Business Mentors. It was by far the best decision we have made in a long time. Business Mentors has brought so many things to the table that we cannot even begin to describe them all.

Basically we feel that we have brought several high level executives into our business that bring years of real world restoration and business experience. The systems we have received and are putting in place far surpass anything that could have been derived from some ongoing franchise investment. The honesty and candidness of the consultants has been eye opening. The overall sense of direction and established methods has been calming to all of our management and personnel.   Read more...

The Rosebrook Team is powerful. Phil Sr. is the forever realist, which I needed against my entrepreneurial, optimistic personality. Phil Jr. is exceptionally brilliant with implementing change and adapting systems to my existing operation.   Read more...

John L. Schroeder
Arizona Disaster Services
Mesa, AR

I was exhausted and beaten by the school of hard knocks, but I have been reinvigorated by the true education I am receiving. In just 3 short months with Business Mentors my company has made an incredible turnaround. The best part is that Business Mentors has given me the tools and the vision to do it. You haven’t come in and “fixed” my business, you have shown me how to fix it. The only regret that I have is that I didn’t do it sooner!   Read more...

Dan Andreasen
President and Owner, Cleanrite-Buildrite Inc.

The suggestions that your team made were accurate and insightful, providing guidance and clarity when I needed them most. The Business Mentors team definitely knows “the business of doing business”. Following your guidance I was able to lead Cleanrite-Buildrite to its present eminently profitable and personally fulfilling state; not just the largest cleaning and restoration firm in the region but clearly the best. The commitment to service that the Business Mentors helped instill has left a lasting impact, one that I know my customers appreciate as well as I do.   Read more...

I took the time to find out who Business Mentors was individually and corporately. I wanted to know who the people I was dealing with were. These results showed me the honesty that you will be dealt with, the vast successful industry knowledge you will learn from and if you follow their recommendation success would be inevitable.

Personally speaking, I have been mentored to better read and manage the business activities, the clients, and my employees. Even better, I have learned to keep above the line and to pickup the ball when it drops.   Read more...

We had been considering Business Mentors for quite a while. When we hit a slump we made the decision to go with them. We only wish we had not waited so long. Phil is very pleasant to work with and was well received by our employees. Morale and forward momentum has taken a big boost since his visit.

In a few short months, Business Mentors has helped to expand our business, increase our client list, implement employee training and incentive programs. The Rosebrook’s business background combined with their experience in the restoration industry is invaluable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.

I have known Phil Rosebrook, Sr. in the business world for over twenty years. I have never met a more honest individual in my business career. I strongly urge you to contract for their services. They not only will improve your business, they will bring large benefits to you as a person. They provide a complete package that you can implement immediately and use years into the future.

Warner Cruz
General Manager/Owner, JC Restoration
Chicago, IL

For the last three years, I have been drowning in my business with no immediate sign of getting my head above water. Our ultimate goals and vision for our company seemed so unattainable until we hired Business Mentors. Through their experience, concern, and dedication to my company, I can finally breath again – Our business proved immediate success after the first week Business Mentors was employed. Not only are they knowledgeable motivators, they are great human beings.

Art Johnson
General Manager, CR Restorations
Port Coquitlam, B.C. Canada

I would like to take the opportunity to express my appreciation for the positive effect you have had on my company. Six months ago I was wondering where I was going, how I was going to get there and if it even was a viable option. In only a couple of visits I was convinced that I had made the right decision to employ Business Mentors.

You were instrumental in providing the programs that were feasible and which have proven successful. This does not begin to tell about the positive effect it has had on CR’s team members and it’s culture. Everyone at CR plays a large part in it’s vision and buy into the positive future that can be enjoyed by all. One thing that stands out in our company now, is the emphasis on customer service. Comments by other companies help us to feel that we have something special here, and I know what it is – your contribution!

Phil Rosebrook is a veteran professional in the restoration field. He has brought clarity to my operation and helped me to set both personal and business goals. He offers real-life solutions to both financials and daily operations problems. Business Mentors provides a unique consulting service because they are truly concerned with the success of their clients. I recommend their services to both new and seasoned restoration and cleaning companies.

Saying thank you seems inadequate for the love and support that you continue to pour on Susan and I and all of Wonder Makers. We are experiencing firsthand your core principle that you love your clients and want to help them do well. Please know that you are having a profound impact on our lives and organization. We are deeply appreciative. May God continue to bless you and your family.

Ron Bankhead
Vice President

Once I realized or (became humble enough to admit) that I did not know everything about business. I hired someone who did. Business Mentors knows the restoration business and more importantly they know ‘the business, of business’.

Our company has experienced tremendous growth yet it had not been managed properly. A sincere thanks to the Rosebrooks for giving us direction and showing us what a successful business should resemble. I'm looking forward to working with Business Mentors as they help us recognize our full potential. With their guidance, this company will go to the next level, one of excellence and outstanding customer service.
