When COVID hit last year, there was this sense of panic. Many business owners thought of the worst, tradies not exempted – closing down their businesses. But we’ve seen resilience throughout last year, and many have survived even thrived. Now that a new year has come, is there still a sense of doom and gloom, or are things looking up?
In this week’s podcast episode, I talk once again with Michael Steckler of Tradify. We discuss the reason behind the Tradify Pulse reports and how it has helped more tradespeople understand what’s happening business-wise. Michael also shares the key insights they have found into their latest report and what advantages await those who are open about using software to automate and ease their processes.
