How Darren 4-X’d His Electrical Business in 7 Months

Guest: Darren Hiscock from Hiscocks Electrical

It is challenging to grow and scale a business if you are not knowledgeable about the strategies and techniques necessary to achieve your goals. Thus, it is crucial to educate yourself with helpful business tools and principles.

In this episode, Darren shares his transition from being an electrician to a business owner. He emphasizes the importance of seeking the help of a business coach who can guide you to grow your business, just like he did with Hiscocks Electrical. He also sought other guides such as business books to help him change his perspective about business.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
