Al Levi, “The 7-Power Contractor,” is a success story like no other. After retiringfrom his family contracting business at age 48, Al began sharing his 7-Powersystem with other contractors throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia so they could learn to run their businesses with less stress and more success. His work has impacted numerous contractors across a dozen industries. His focus now is on putting his thinking online through The 7-Power Contractor Signature Operating Manuals System and Signature Staffing System, and his book The 7-Power Contractor.
