I have a friend, Craig, who is a local custom builder and has been part of all the ups and downs of the construction industry here in Florida. I thought it was a challenge operating a Trust Company until I heard about his issues; when times are good, it is extremely difficult to find subcontractors such as framers, roofers, electricians, concrete pourers and others. When times are bad, you just don’t have buyers, yet you still have to pay your staff regardless. While Craig has successfully navigated his business for over 30 years, I’m most impressed at his dogged tracking of his retirement planning.
