Room 35’s Blueprint for Business Success: Worthy Roofing

In our quest to empower construction owners, we’ve created the Blueprint Program, paving the way for growth and success with the proper tools and relationships.

Embracing the Blueprint Program

Today, we delve into the journey of Khari Worthy, Owner of Worthy Construction in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and his experience with our Blueprint program. Khari Worthy’s journey with the program began at a pivotal moment in his business. While his company, Worthy Construction, was operating at full capacity, Khari recognized the need for more streamlined operations and organizational structure to sustain and expand his operations. This realization led him to Room 35’s Blueprint Program, where he found a wealth of resources and support to address these crucial needs. Although, this decision to let someone into his business was very hard on him. Building trust to let someone help was taxing on Khari, he quoted to “Just get started” as any individual looking to grow their business can accelerate and scale quickly, if they let others in and accept help.  

At the heart of Khari’s experience with the Blueprint Program was the transformation of his business’s infrastructure. Prior to joining the program, Khari struggled with managing finances, maintaining an effective online presence, and articulating a clear vision and mission for his company. However, through the guidance and resources provided by Room 35, Khari was able to develop robust bookkeeping systems, revamp his website for better visibility and accessibility, and refine his business strategy to align with his core values and objectives. 

One of the most significant aspects of the Blueprint Program for Khari was the emphasis on teamwork and employee trust. As a business owner, Khari recognized that his success hinged not only on his own efforts but also on the dedication and expertise of his team. Through the program’s mentorship and networking opportunities, Khari learned how to foster a culture of collaboration and empowerment within his company, enabling his employees to thrive and contribute to the overall success of Worthy Construction. 

Overcoming Challenges And Achieving Success 

While the benefits of the Blueprint Program were evident, Khari also faced challenges along the way. One of the biggest hurdles was learning to trust the consulting team and open up about his business operations. Like many entrepreneurs, Khari initially hesitated to share sensitive information about his company, fearing judgment or criticism. However, as he began to see the positive impact of Room 35’s guidance and support, Khari gradually let go of his reservations and embraced transparency as a catalyst for growth. He urges other contractors to “Just get started” as trust can be hard to build. 

Through perseverance and determination, Khari was able to overcome these challenges and achieve remarkable success with Worthy Roof. With the help of the Blueprint Program, Khari transformed his business from a struggling enterprise into a thriving operation, his revenue growth grew to 25% year over year for three consecutive years. Moreover, Khari’s commitment to his employees and community has solidified Worthy Construction’s reputation as a trusted and respected leader in the roofing industry.
