How Much Can I Sell?

The short answer is that it’s up to you (but that's what everyone says, right).


Some of the factors which are going to determine how much you can make include:


  1. How large a business to you want to build?
    MARBLELIFE’s model can support a one-man-&-a-helper model as well as a multi-crew, multi-service, multi-location business.  It depends on your goals and financial targets.  How big do you want to build it?  What kind of work-play and earnings-flexibility balance are you looking for?
  2. How many MARBLELIFE services will you offer?
    Each office is trained in all services MARBLELIFE offers; however one can build a business with one, or a broad-based business with all of them.  One can focus on one segment or develop positions in numerous segments.
  3. Can you follow a system?
    The reason franchising has been so successful, is that the business model has been worked out, systems developed, processes refined, equipment and sources found, accounting systems developed, supplier relationships established.  This allows one to plug-in and apply an established model into your local area leveraging the strengths of a national company in support of your local one.  As we say, National Expertise – Delivered Locally.  The key is following that system.
  4. Do you enjoy helping people?
    Business is about helping people solve problems.  In our case, we provide building solutions designed to enhance the relationship between people, their buildings, their lives and their business.  Generally, over time referrals will eventually exceed marketing driven leads, as we grow relationships throughout our local market.  In the end business is about helping others.


MARBLELIFE has an enormous market and we’re always looking for ways to expand our revenue sources. If you want to run a top-performing business that hits or exceeds your financial goals, we can show you how and have the experience to help you succeed. 


The flexibility of our system allows operators to build a business tailored to their needs and desires. If they wish to operate a one-man-and-a-truck operations that is possible.  If you want to build a large multi-crew business that is also possible.

This story gets a little more interesting when we look at the sales in the US between those operating a business with multiple crews and those operating as a Man-and-a-Helper.

Our General-Manager-Lead businesses are building businesses that can operate without their owner’s day-to-day involvement. When we look at those that have installed a general manager allowing them to work exclusively ON their business versus IN their business you can see what is possible.


2019 Business with General Manager (4) = $ 1,054,000 $ 87,875/mo.
2018 Building their Teams (7) = $ 400,000 $ 33,350/mo.


One of our Building-Their-Team office is about to graduate to Business-with-General-Manager.
How did he test this?
He took his family on 11 vacations in one year including trips to Ireland, Disney and Thanksgiving in San Francisco, and his business continued to grow. What does he work on when he is in his home market --- what he likes – in his case - sales.  The freedom and flexibility to manage your life on your terms.


You might think the big money is in one market or another, but you will see that the larger offices simply have an owner who has decided to build a business that allows them to step away, yet wants to reach ever higher levels.


Our Business-with-General Managers are operating in offices such as Detroit and St. Louis these are working towns versus the big money cities you might expect. This goes to the very fact that you can build a business to the size you desire and need; to meet your income and lifestyle goals balanced with the freedom and time you want and need.


Meanwhile system wide average sales average $323,000 annually or more than $26,900/mo.  Systemwide sales rose 5% in 2019, and have averaged 7% since 2011 and the Great Recession.  


In comparison, while the US GDP expanded 38% since 2011, MARBLELIFE has grown by 68% almost twice the rate of GDP growth.


Once MARBLELIFE is in a market, it becomes substantially more difficult for a competitor to establish a competitive voice, by design. We aim to not just assist our partners in growing their business, but with a goal to be the largest, most expert, customer satisfying and dominant voice in the space.
