The event will focus on three key factors that all successful companies exhibit: buying right, advertising right and selling right.

A series of meetings designed to provide independent contractors with strategies to use buying power, state-of-the-art technology and new advertising strategies has been announced as a unique cooperative effort by a group of sponsoring organizations.

The “Focus On Your Future” events will initially be held in three cities. The first event was held in Orlando, Fla., on March 26. The remaining dates are Las Vegas on April 16 and Dallas on May 7. Sponsors include Goodman Manufacturing, Michelin Tire, Barnett Pro Contractor Supplies, Staples, Johnstone Supply, Wesco and Clockwork Home Services Inc.

The program will focus on three key factors that all successful companies exhibit: buying right, advertising right and selling right.

At a special bonus presentation, “Buy For a Dime - Sell For a Dollar,” participants will learn how to find and acquire companies inexpensively or how to prepare to get the highest price for a business.

The registration fee for Focus On Your Future is $99; however, the first 100 people registered will receive a tuition voucher to cover the $99 investment. In addition, every attendee has a chance at receiving valuable prizes. One person will win a $1,000 credit to his or her favorite supply house. Each attendee receives a $237 buying credit and will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes with a chance to win a $10,000 integrated software package and a chance to win a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 extended-cab truck.
