I, Diane, helped my husband run his construction company (which we started at our kitchen table) in the high desert in California for many years.  We experienced few of the ups but many of the downs that dog so many construction contractors.

Eventually I found myself fielding questions from other construction company owners and operators who were wondering about this or that.

Because we'd been through so many hassles and had a lot of information to share I was often told that I should write a book.

I decided that a website would be better because it would be much more accessible to contractors, and up-to-date (the laws change so fast), than would a book sitting on a bookshelf in a bookstore.

Fast forward many years later.

I formed a new corporation *Monk and DBug, LLC for which I now work and we've created, and have managed for many years, three individual construction-related websites.

In addition we've written articles specifically for other publications. A brief list:

  • The Florida Forum: April 2002 - Contract Clauses to Watch Out For
  • Construction Business Owner: May 2005 - Sexual Harassment Prevention and Training
  • Spray Foam Magazine: June 2011 - What? You Didn't Properly Serve a Preliminary Notice?

And several of our articles that we've written for our own websites have been used and referenced in books, articles, and websites written by attorneys and other professionals.

Over the years we've discovered so much outdated information, lacking information, and outdated and inaccurate forms and documents on the Internet that we decided to create this website.

It's the goal of InformedContractors.com to combat all of the inaccurate information out there as well as to bring accurate and helpful information to you in "quick digest" articles that'll keep you moving forward, and productive, in your day.

We have a panel of experts in the construction management / business management fields and they have generously offered to contribute to our "one article per week" newsletter by providing practical ideas and sound solutions to help you beat the never-ending hassles that seem to plague contracting businesses.

Finally your time will be free to focus on growing your business and increasing your income!


I named my LLC "Monk and DBug, LLC" because 'Monk' is short for my daughter's nickname of Monkey and 'DBug' is short for my son's nickname of DoodleBug. :o) I can't really call them by their nicknames so much anymore (my daughter yes, my son *never*) ;o) so I named my LLC after them.
