A Message From Scott Humphrey, CEO of the World Floor Covering Association
“I and the rest of the WFCA leadership have worked with Jim and appeared as guests on webinar events with him multiple times.  Over the years I have had the opportunity to get to know Jim better and learn about his mission, which is to help flooring retailers succeed.  

“There are major challenges facing our industry, not least of which are big box retailers taking market share from independent dealers.  There are also incredible opportunities for retailers who are willing to adapt and learn new methods for attracting and keeping customers.  Jim has dedicated his career to helping dealers do just that.  And Jim has been there to help them thrive and prosper in the 21st Century.  This is also my mission, and the reason I joined the WFCA as its CEO.  With Jim I have another colleague who is with me on the front lines, equipping retailers to fight the good fight, succeed and prosper.

“In our industry there are those who are only concerned with themselves and their own success, and those who are truly interested in helping our industry and giving back.  I am happy to say that Jim is one of the latter.”  
Scott Humphrey

I was working 60 hours a week, including weekends.  I didn’t have enough customers and my margins were really low.  Thanks to Jim’s training I increased my margins from 25% to 50%.   My revenue has more than doubled, and my profits increased by five times.  I’m also working less than 40 hours per week, and I have time to spend with my family.  Jim’s strategies changed my business and my life.

Most of the advertising I tried in the past tended to attract price shoppers.  Jim’s strategies are different than anything I’ve seen in our industry.  They attract quality customers who are happy to pay more for good service.  I was able to increase my margins from 25% to 60%, and customers are happy to pay it and send me referrals.  We’re growing, business is fun, and I’m on track to break a $1 Million and it’s only my second year with a retail store.

LaValle Flooring, Valley City, ND

My business has literally tripled.  We get way more repeat and referral business now,  and I’m able to charge more than my competitors.  I just closed a $30,000 job and I was $5,000 higher than my closest competitor.  I’m closing $8,000 to $12,000 jobs like it was nothing.

(Thanks to) Jim’s training, I’ve been able to really narrow my focus and have seen the benefit.  With what I consider a half-effort, in the last 4 months my margins have gone from 32% to 40%!  A customer recently told one of my sales team that we are $1,000 higher than our competitor, but that the peace of mind we offer is more important than the money. We still got the sale!

Jim, I've only owned my flooring business for less than two years now and I just paid it off. The most valuable thing I've learned was surprising to me, but maybe not to you.  You attract a certain kind of fish based on the bait you use. By setting ourselves apart and not making price the bait to attract customers, we've seen a positive change in our clientele and are consistently getting 40%+ margins.  Contrast that to the largest dealer in town (doing 3-4 times the amount of business we are) who I've heard through the grapevine is on credit hold with half his suppliers because he's the king of the cheap price rat race. Thanks,
Bundy’s Flooring, Logan, UT
