(0:52) In This Episode: Are You Stressed Out? This episode of Remodeling Mastery gives us a much-needed look at something all business owners are intimately familiar with: stress. Contractors today experience stress at levels higher and in ways more complex than ever before. Not managed properly, it can suck the joy out of your business and make effective problem solving near impossible. So what’s a business owner to do when things are threatening to spiral out of control? That’s what Mark Richardson is here to talk about. (17:52) Thought Leader Interview with Rick Wuest, President and CEO of Thompson Creek Window Company Mark and Rick take a trip down memory lane to see how Thompson Creek and the larger home improvement industry have changed over the past couple of decades. They go deep into the importance of balancing forward momentum and stability at a time when the pace of change is accelerating everywhere in the home services space: do we stay ahead of the wave, behind it or just in it? Finally, Rick touches on the difference between worrying about things you can’t control and active problem solving. If you’ve ever been kept up at night by the thought of where your business is heading, make time to tune in to this segment. “Charles Darwin figured it out a long time ago: it’s not the strongest of the species nor the most intelligent that survives, it’s the one that’s most able to adapt.” —Rick Wuest
