Mike and his wife, Cindy, just returned from Jackson Hole, Wyoming where they attended their first meeting with Mike's new Builder 20 Club. Builder and fellow club member, Peter Lee of Teton Heritage Builders hosted the event.
During the daily meetings that Mike attended, he was able to share his own experiences and hear about the other builders' experiences. The builders have a chance to share ideas, marketing strategies, encouragement, and much more with one another as they discuss their work and plans for the future. The Builder 20 Club will be a great way for Mike Schaap Builders to develop relationships with other builders across the country... that's good company to have!
