Why Trade Up Consulting?

My name is Tim Meuchel. After graduating with an engineering degree from Virginia Tech I spent twelve years cutting my teeth in the private sector, managing large commercial construction projects from coast-to-coast. In 2007, I started my own construction company and spent the next decade focusing primarily on residential and commercial remodeling.

This led to the publishing of my first book, The 10 Factor, which reverse engineered the actual steps I took to restructure my own construction company and provides other business owners a means to develop logical systems & processes for their own businesses while improving their work-life balance.

Tim was a great resource when I was ready to make a career change. Not long before it was my turn, I had watched Tim completely restructure his company's focus in just a few months' time.
