About The Site Shed

The Site Shed is about helping tradespeople get access to information that can help them run a successful business. The vision started many years ago, as a way that the founder Matt Jones, could give back to the industry that had served him so well.

As a former tradesman, Matt knew the difficulties that he faced in relation to obtaining relevant information pertaining to the successful running of trade based business. More to the point, it was even harder to get access to networks and resources that could leverage and the experience and wisdom of those that have trodden the path before.

Live Training Sessions

In addition to the podcast, Matt Jones offers members of The Site Shed’s Facebook Group free weekly training on a range of business management topics via live sessions hosted in the group on Wednesdays.

Each month has a theme and each theme has four weeks of content planned, meaning that every month members get to take a deep dive into important issues and strategies that relate to the success of their operations.

Some themes we have planned for this year include: 

Lead Generation

Hiring and Retention

Time Management

Customer Communication

End of Financial Year

And much more!

Oh, so you haven’t been to one of business workshops yet? That must suck.
Voted by Apple as one of the best business podcasts!
With over 200 episodes

Imagine if there was a GLOBAL community of trade business owners you could be a part of!

The Site Shed has done just that… and we’d love you to be a part of it.

Click the button and we look forward to seeing you on the inside!
