Think like a business, and you’ll learn how to manage a business.

Think like a wage-earner, and your business may flop.

Being an expert tradie is different from knowing how to run a trades business. As a wage-earner, you only provide services in exchange for money. But as a business owner, you have to consider the profit margin, pricing, costs, employees’ salary, and more to scale your enterprise.

With so much on your plate, how can you manage everything?

In this value-packed episode, we have Gabriel Pinchev, CEO of FieldPulse to talk about the basics of running a valuable business. We also cover essential topics, such as using technology to systemise a business, showcasing your expertise to the target clients, levelling up your company website’s content, and more!

    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.
