EP68: Using Benefits to Build a Winning Team


In this episode of the DYB podcast, Steve is once again joined by Greg, April, Scott, and Ron to talk about using benefits to build a winning team. They dive into topics like insurance, paid time-off, and special types of benefits such as tool acquisition and training.

The DYB team talks about what should count as a company benefit and how to make sure it is something that carries value, advancement, and opportunity. They share their own business experiences in providing different types of benefits to employees and discuss what’s in store for the future.



  • How to use company benefits to build a winning team
  • What should count as a company benefit
  • Types of benefits you can leverage





“People want an opportunity for growth, so showing them a clear path for advancement and tying that up in your hiring ads is critical.”

“These [conferences] cost you money because you have to pay [employees] to go do it, but it can be really helpful and they can come back and train others on the material they learned.”

“Not everyone’s gonna take you up on all of your benefits; you have to find out what’s important to each of your employees.”

“I recommend that we allow people to enjoy some part of their lives without worrying about the paycheck.. what we recommend is that it is an earned benefit..”

“You should tell people, “We offer training!” It’s a benefit and you should put it out there as one.”

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
