MBAKS Remodelers Council Dinner

The Remodeling Life: Making Your Business Work for You 

A Remodelers Speaker Series Event

Do you find yourself thinking that your business is running you? That you are repeating the same learning experiences day after day? You feel like you are stuck in a rut and can’t find your way out of it to become the successful businessperson you’ve always wanted to be? Hear how someone actually made their business work for them. 

Attendees will be able to:

  • Remodel yourself so you’ll be overwhelmed by your business in a positive way
  • Build a team of employees who'll bring tears of joy to your eyes
  • Have your business work for you instead of you working for it
  • Be more likely to make fewer mistakes and to experience the success you deserve

And, as you expect from an RC Dinner, the food will be good, the friends plentiful, and the networking opportunities second-to-none.


Paul Winans

Paul Winans, CR

Author, “The Remodeling Life: A Journey From Laggard To Leader”

Paul Winans is a recovering carpenter who started a business because demand for his services grew, not because he really wanted to be a business owner; he became the business person and salesman the company needed by constantly seeking help from business consultants and sales training experts. Paul ran that business with his wife, Nina, for 29 years before they sold it in 2007. Their systems-oriented approach, with manuals for every position which were used as part of a continuous training program, contributed greatly to the company’s success and their ability to be away from the day-to-day running of the business for up to four months each year!

A past president of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Paul is an NAHB National Remodeling Quality Gold Award winner and has been recognized in Remodeling Magazine's Big 50 Hall of Fame and Qualified Remodeler Magazine's 15 innovators in the remodeling industry over the past 30 years.
