Jack Dennison has been an extraordinary coach. I started my restoration business not long ago and have already had a fantastic experience. What I am most impressed with is Jack's knowledge of the industry and his particular expertise in construction. I received a high volume of large-losses from the enormous destruction caused by a tornado in our state. I was beside myself with how to handle so many assignments from the TPAs that Jack had helped me get on. Jack calmly and methodically talked me through each job, one by one. Some were very complex, and thanks to Jack's help, I am on top of every one of them now. One TPA has thanked me for doing such a great job and has said I am their top performer in this Catastrophe – imagine that! Smart, good, experienced, expert guy – I highly commend Jack to everyone.

It was a business joy to have Jack as a Business Coach! For the 30 years, I have been in business, I have never hired a Business Coach. After talking with Jack, we decided we needed his help to start a Fire & Water Restoration division inside our General Contracting business. I wish I had Jack as my coach years ago. He helped us generate $650,000 in additional revenue this first year with TPA's alone. With Jack showing me how to earn a 40% - 50% margin on every rebuild job, we brought in an additional $250,000 in net profit! That's a big deal! Lastly, Jack's positive approach and weekly encouragement made my job easier, more fun, and much more profitable."

Easily one of the BEST investments I've ever made!! For several years, my revenue line leveled off, and I felt stuck. In 2017, I stumbled across Jack's name via online chat. I gathered the courage to call him and was immediately blown away by his knowledge of the restoration and construction industry. I made the decision to invest in myself and my business by signing up for his coaching program. At the end of my nine months, I had achieved several things: 1) Increased my business by 40% through several new TPA relationships. 2) Used his advice during coaching that saved me from a six-figure mistake with a current customer, and 3) Successfully added construction services to my service offerings. Jack is results-oriented, which makes me one of his biggest fans. My 2018 revenue almost doubled my 2017 revenue!!! Enough said

We were a $1 million plus restoration company focused strictly on mitigation. We decided to use Jack to help us get into the re-build side. After just one year, we will do $1 million plus in re-build alone. We doubled our business in 12 months. We would not have been able to successfully move into re-build without Jack's help. Highly recommended.

Jack was well versed in the restoration industry. He was always clear and articulate on what he did to grow his business and what you need to do to change and grow yours. He is worth the investment in time and money!

I have been in the restoration industry for 35 years. I found that Jack and I connected well; not only was he knowledgeable but a good listener. His advice and thoughts are solid. I looked forward to His outside perspective and thoughtful insights regarding my business every week. I would gladly recommend him to any of you.

When starting our restoration business we looked for someone who could guide us through all the steps and hurdles along the way. When talking with Jack, his expertise in restoration and construction for start-ups made the decision very easy for us. We wouldn't be where we are today as a company without his guidance and direction.

I have enjoyed working with Jack this past year. He knows what he is talking about. He has a ton of experience in the insurance restoration business and I learn something new every time I speak to him. I would definitely recommend Jack's consulting services.

Jack has been great to work with. I have had a 4-year relationship with him and he has always been there when I need him. Jack was instrumental in helping us beginning and growing our Reconstruction division while also providing insight and tools that allow up to gain access to TPA work. Jack is a name I can always refer to with confidence.

I wish to extend my thanks to Jack for his help over the last months in my transition into the Restoration Business through TPA's and Re-Construction. His professionalism and calm demeanor during our sessions went a long way to reassure me that it would be okay. In addition, his willingness to talk to me on short notice, speaks volume to his customer service. Due to his vast knowledge and expertise, my sales have increased, and I could not have done it without Jack. I look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with The Restoration Entrepreneur!

Working with Jack Dennison to add construction services to our operation has been exactly what we hoped for. We’ve had a well-established mitigation company, but adding construction has allowed us to deliver A to Z services which better meets the needs of our customers. Jack helped us streamline the process of launching our new division in less than six months. This included everything from job descriptions and hiring to daily operations and financial management. Who wants to reinvent the wheel or waste time with inefficiencies in starting a new major division of work? Jack cut the learning curve to a fraction and helped us focus on the critical factors setting us up for long-term success.

I have been a general contractor for years, but I have had little understanding of the insurance industry. Jack promised he could help me become active on a number of major TPAs to get work and would help me do a good job in this new industry. We are currently active on 5 TPAs just as Jack promised and we have learned Xactimate and how to work in the insurance world effectively. Our business is growing, and I am a happy and grateful camper! We could never have done this without Jack’s help – thank you, Jack Dennison, for helping me expand my rebuild contracting into the insurance market!!

We are a successful restoration franchise who has for years considered the possibility of adding rebuild services. Without a strong construction background, I had been reluctant to dive in and take the risk. I discovered Jack Dennison and The Restoration Entrepreneur several years ago and with his help decided to go for it! I hired a construction person in January 2018 and began a 6-month coaching plan with Jack in February. We will earn an additional $1 million in construction revenue this year. We have systems in place, I have a sense of command over our work, and we are now a true full-service company. I would not have had the confidence to do this without Jack’s expert experience and help. I am grateful and thrilled with the results.

We just completed The Restoration Entrepreneur’s 9-Month Startup Igniter. Jack Dennison helped us with every detail from choosing our company name to identifying a website developer to providing all the necessary forms and everything else needed for the startup. Jack even convinced us that starting as a full-service mitigation and rebuild company was the best way to go. Nine months later we are on pace to do $1 million in our first 12 months. We are hiring our 2nd technician, have added an admin person, and we are starting our search for a construction manager. We enjoy the industry and are deeply grateful to Jack for his expertise in all things related to our successful business launch.

We are a young full-service restoration company who contracted with Jack Dennison and The Restoration Entrepreneur for mentoring. We asked Jack to help us get more work through referral sources and improve our construction profits. Several TPAs have already approved us for new assignments, and we are working on what will likely be the biggest game-changer of all. Upon learning that Jack referred us, one TPA Membership Coordinator said, “he is one of the most iconic figures in the industry today.” I couldn’t agree more! Jack has already contributed a lot to our growth, and we look forward to his continued coaching and our ongoing improvement.

We are thankful for having the opportunity to work with Jack Dennison. Not only has Jack been instrumental in significantly increasing our capacity to grow our revenue, but he also brought clarity to realistic expectations relating to our overhead costs and organizational strategies which resulted in unbelievable profitability for our company. Additionally, Jack speaks frequently regarding the opportunity that exists with TPAs to support a restoration company’s growth. I would never have imagined that with his expert guidance my company would become approved by nearly every National TPA in just 10 weeks of focused effort – thank you Jack for that! The opportunity he speaks about is real!

I recently told Jack Dennison, my business coach, that in 2015 my company was added to 5 of 6 TPAs I applied to and my sales increased by 55% for the year. WOW! I am so pleased with such a large first year result. Jack then encouraged me to apply to the 2 TPAs I hadn’t yet contacted and reminded me of the great opportunities available with various local government groups. Maybe I will get another 55% increase this year from those additional sources and double my business in 2 years. That is much more than I ever dreamed of when I started this journey with Jack and The Restoration Entrepreneur. I am a happy restoration company owner! P.S. I just got added to Contractor Connection. It took a while, but I am happy to be in the Network!

With Jack Dennison’s help I have been added to 6 TPAs so far including the coveted Contractor Connection. One TPA during a recent CAT in our area slammed me with more work than I could ever have imagined. I told Jack how challenging it was to deal with such a high volume of work and jokingly told him “I have you to blame for this.” The truth is we received more than 50 assignments and earned more than $250,000 from our TPA partners. I really am grateful for all the help, advice, coaching, and support Jack has been to me. His work has gone far beyond The Business Transformer and his emphasis upon revenue and profit – he has been there every time I called with a question about so many topics – and I have been grateful for his constant availability and expert coaching and personal support. Thank you Jack for being there for me!

We are a large and dominant restoration company in our Ohio marketplace who was searching for help to grow our business further. We were impressed with Jack Dennison and invited him to join our team. We have engaged in countless conference calls involving my General Manager and me as well as multiple large group video conferences with our management team and estimators. During one of those calls Jack identified a single operational problem that he helped us correct. That one change alone will increase our job capture rate by more than $1 million in annual sales this year alone. WOW – now that is good coaching – thanks Jack!! His help has been substantial and every conversation has been meaty and valuable. I wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Jack Dennison to any restoration owner of any size to assess internal operations and lead the way to higher profits and greater revenue.

Though I have been involved in construction work for a long time this was my first foray into full-service restoration. I was provided growth strategies, operations systems, checklists, forms, procedures and every other kind of help I felt I needed to successfully begin my startup business. The Startup Igniter gave me a turnkey and comprehensive approach to getting my business off the ground and way more cheaply than other approaches. Without Jack’s help I am confident I would not have thrived or survived in my first year of business. I am happy with Jack Dennison’s help and would recommend him to any restoration company. He is a genuine industry leader and expert!

I have really appreciated working with Jack Dennison and The Restoration Entrepreneur. He is clearly an expert in operating and growing a restoration business. Of all the benefits of his coaching to my company one of the most important to me has been having someone that I can bounce any idea off of or ask any question and expect solid, practical, and workable responses every time. I have been in the business for 20 years and yet have learned a lot from Jack and I have received a lot of help running my business better through Jack’s – The Profit Maker coaching plan. Thanks Jack for all you have done and all you have meant to me personally!

I just want to tell everyone how helpful Jack Dennison’s coaching has been to the development of our construction work. Jack has been faithful to our weekly meetings and always available to help us with any issue we face. He has been a great support to me personally as I have guided the development of our growing construction work. He is a positive and encouraging person, his information is well laid out, his presentations are clear and relevant, his solutions and systems are right on and truly business altering – I have learned so much, and he is a true industry expert! I highly recommend Jack Dennison and The Restoration Entrepreneur to anyone who plans to start construction services. With his help you can succeed as we have – the revenue will come and profits will grow and you will be a more effective leader than ever before.

I want to thank Jack Dennison with The Restoration Entrepreneur for all the help he has been to me. My primary interest has been to become a program contractor and being approved by TPAs. We are a small company and so I only approached a couple of TPAs and to my surprise was approved almost immediately by several of them. In just one month I got more than $22,000 of mitigation work from just two TPAs and that does not include any rebuild sales. That creates a whole new set of opportunities for me including hiring additional personnel and opening up construction and roofing services for my company. I just want others to know that Jack Dennison does exactly what he says he’s going to do.

I have always been a hard worker and have worked very hard to build my restoration business over the years. What I learned in my relationship with Jack Dennison is that you need to work hard and know the right things to do to really be successful. Jack has helped me become active on several TPA Networks. I just got $150,000 of work from 2 TPAs in just a three-day period and this was not for CAT work! What a relief that has been and has really helped to relieve the pressure I have felt. I am grateful to Jack for his coaching and knowledge regarding exactly what to do to grow my business!

We have struggled to incorporate construction services into our business to become a more successful restoration company. Our construction margins were low and the cash flow demands were ever increasing as our business grew. We had read Jack’s blogs for some time and decided to seek his services. Addressing our immediate problem, Jack shared what type of margins and cash our business should produce. With those goals, we then went to work implementing his operational and administrative processes to make it happen. Within a few months, we were able to turn our cash position completely around; paying off our line of credit and having a positive cash balance. Now, we have a much more positive outlook for our business and it’s exciting to see what lies ahead. Jack’s restoration knowledge and his ability to communicate are game changers. With Jack’s help we continue addressing other important aspects of our business’s operation.
