No time to set up a dependable retirement plan for your small business? 
AXALearning about the different types of retirement plans and setting one up can be a stressful and time consuming process. Small businesses often do not have employees committed to these types of financial services and this burden most likely falls upon you, the owner. At AXA Equitable, we know that the opportunity cost of learning about retirement on your own is impractical. Because of this, we have made the learning process as easy and seamless as possible through our turnkey offerings.
These turnkey offerings include full service 401(k) plans, which include administrative, record keeping, and investment services, eliminating the need for third party support. We will also help you plan, design, and set up your personalized plan to ensure that you understand each step. Finally, we will keep an open line of communication throughout the life of the plan to help with any issues.
We know your time is precious, but retirement can last upwards of 30-40 years of your life 1. Lack of preparation can mean that all of your hard work was for naught. 1 Let us help you reap the rewards of a life’s work.
Call us at 1-800-523-1125 to speak with a Retirement Program specialist or visit us at www.axa.com/nahb to learn how you can start saving today.

Generate and Maintain Consistent and Predictable Cash Flow! 
ManagingYourBusiness150.jpgMost builders and contractors struggle to get a clear picture of where their business is at the moment and where it’s headed financially. By the time they compare their accounting reports with their job costing, estimating and change orders, and pipeline, it is often too late to make adjustments to guarantee profit.
Available at BuilderBooks.com, Managing Your Business With 7 Key Numbers lays out a process that will help business owners see where they stand every day, with every job, by monitoring just seven key numbers that drive all profits and cash flow.
Industry veterans Jeff Prager and Scott Stroud, provide a refreshingly different approach to business management, one that puts the focus on cash flow rather than profits. Managing Your Business With 7 Key Numbers was written to help small business owners understand how to get and keep control of the key areas of their business.
This invaluable resource takes readers through the fundamentals of management focusing on the right questions to ask in order to drive profitability. The book also shows builders and remodelers how to develop a process that alerts them immediately when costs or scheduling deviate from the estimate – in time to make adjustments to ensure profitability and cash flow. 
Managing Your Business With 7 Key Numbers is available at BuilderBooks.com or by calling 800-223-2665. ($31.95 NAHB member/$35.95 retail)
The eBook format available at ebooks.builderbooks.com  allows readers to view the book directly on their computer, iPad, and Android. ($20.99 NAHB member/$24.99 retail)
