THE PROFIT


peer benchmarking group worth- while.


Other times, owners use the time to discuss a problem that they are trying to solve. I recall a peer benchmarking group that I facili- tated in which one yard owner needed to make better use of the space in his comparatively small yard. He couldn’t buy adjacent land. When I was growing my yard, I had faced a similar problem and solved it by expanding upward. I bought used shipping con- tainers, cut doors in them,


stacked them, and used them to store parts. He had never considered growing upward. If you are hungry for success, I urge you to join a peer benchmarking group. Counts Consulting runs excellent groups for recyclers facilitated by Bill Stevens and Mike Kunckle.


If you want to know more about putting together your own peer benchmarking group, get my book,


Although many yard owners have similar life experiences, each participant brings something different to the table. Being able to talk to eight or nine experienced owners and a facilitator who knows your industry yields valuable insights.
