“Use your unique ability to succeed,” says Gabe Cooley. As president of Rayco Exteriors, Gabe recruits top talent to create a strong leadership team that shares his values: consider the greater good, have pride in workmanship, and be honest. Operating for 10+ years, Rayco has renovated 3,500+ commercial buildings, HOA communities and complexes.
Gabe’s tips for success:
- Focus on one priority at a time, don’t multitask on projects that don’t fit with the big picture.
- Build the discipline and find the value of saying no.
- Empower your leadership team to communicate values and strategy. You can’t be everywhere.
- Face the ups and downs to develop a thicker skin.
