The Fruits of Designing A Sustainably Profitable Business

Andrew Tvardzik is today’s guest, and he and his family have been a part of the Better Business, Better Life™ program for several years now. Upon joining the program, they were committed to not only building a business and making sales but to also creating a great place to work.

In Episode 95, Andrew shared with us about the transformation his company was experiencing, as well as the challenges that it was facing head-on.

Today, he brings us up-to-date on his powerful entrepreneurial journey that, with the guidance of the Better Business, Better Life™ program, has given him an amazing life and business that he could have never before imagined.

Andrew Tvardzik was first introduced to running a business at 10 years of age. He started mowing lawns and built an impressive clientele for a 10-year-old. At 14, he got a job working for a restaurant facilities maintenance company. Andrew worked there for 11 years doing everything from sweeping the warehouse to running crews as a lead man to operations managers. In 2015, he went into business with his father doing remodeling and real estate investing. In 2018, they added Andrew’s brother, Samuel, to the team and started Cedar Ridge Log Homes. Their goal is to become the premier cedar log home builders in Deep Creek, Maryland.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
