Jon Isaacson - The Intentional Restorer and DYOJO Show Host - Bridging the Gap between Old School Restorers and The Next Generation
This week we welcome the Intentional Restorer and DYOJO podcast host Jon Isaacson. We're going to continue our deep dive into the restoration world but with a little different focus. Last week we had an excellent show following the RIA 75th Diamond Anniversary Convention. One of last week's guests joins us solo this week to discuss how the Old Guard Restorers (and for that matter contractors) can better relate with younger generations. Jon Isaacson, The Intentional Restorer, is an author and host of The DYOJO Podcast. Jon speaks, writes, and coaches through his organization The DYOJO helping the start-up phase owners and growth-minded restoration professionals to shorten their DANG learning curve for personal and professional development. For over two decades Jon has been working in leadership roles with organizations in the construction, hazards abatement, and property restoration industries. Jon recently published two books, Be Intentional: Estimating addressing mindset and habits for insurance claims estimating and Be Intentional: Culture which is a collaborative work discussing how small things enhance or undermine your efforts to build a strong workplace culture.

Kristy Cohen, Mark Springer, Katie Smith, Ed Cross & Jon Isaacson - The RIA 75th Diamond Anniversary Convention Highlights Show
This week we welcome a cast of restoration all-stars for an update on the state of the industry following the RIA’s 75th Diamond Anniversary Convention last week in Orlando, FL. RIA is the Big Daddy of the restoration industry and their convention is the highlight of the year. Hot topics at this year’s event included what RIA has identified as the top three issues facing contractors today: Pricing, Third Party Adjusters (TPA’s) and Consultants. There was also a lot of talk about the RIA’s Advocacy and Government Affairs (AGA) Committee which has now formed three task forces to create position statements that articulate a shared stance for the industry. The AGA work product contains 10 total position statements including a groundbreaking TPA scorecard, hours of videos on pricing and a nationwide resource document on assignment of benefits. In the past year, RIA also released eight Third Party Consultant (TPC) position statements. These position statements educate restorers on best practices for working with consultants. There was also a town hall discussion on how RIA responded to the global pandemic, past president’s panel with lessons learned and much more. LEARN MORE this week on IAQ Radio+. Guest Bios
