The journey towards a successful business is not without challenges. The good thing, however, about doing business today is that there are a lot of tools available to help with growth. There are so many business owners though who think that utilising these tools will only mean another expense and a waste of time when it’s actually the opposite as it could translate to more savings and more time on your hands. 

In this week’s podcast episode, I am joined by Peter Kendall. He is the Director and Founder of Expanse Builders and We Hang Doors. He is one of The Site Shed’s avid podcast listeners. Peter shares his business journey and how he has brought it to where it is today. He also talks about how he is utilising Facebook to gather leads and bring in new customers. His story is indeed inspirational and encourages business owners that growing one’s business is not an impossible feat.

Great work Matt with all the podcasts and the site shed facebook community group. The amount of information that you can learn for free in this space is unbelieveable. It's great to see like minded contractors and trades trying to improve their businesses and also share ideas and help others. Highly recommend. Thanks!

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.
