As a Trades and Builders Business Coach, I meet business owners in the trades and building industry every day, and a fairly typical question is ‘what’s the most important thing I need to do to have a successful business?’
The answer I give depends on how much I know about your business. The more I know, the more tailored my answer can be.
But if we’re starting from the beginning, and I don’t know anything about you or how your business is set up, my answer is always – you need the right team around you to be successful.
It starts with your team
If you are really committed to being successful, you need an amazing team. A team that includes people working for you, and also supplying you with services or products to run your business. That includes your business mentor, who understands your business
So how do you choose the right team for you and your goals?
The Internal Team.
This core internal team includes you, the apprentice/s, the qualified, the project manager, sub-contractors, your office team, and the bookkeeper.
While there can be more, this is what makes up your main internal team.
The External Team:
These are your team of specialists that you use as your advisors and supporters to help you build a high performing business.
From the strategic standpoint, your Trades Business Coach, or Builders’ Business Coach, is critical for setting the direction, keeping you accountable and helping you achieve overall success through your business.
Having a clear roadmap and the support to get there will fast track your success and give you back your freedom.
The rest of your specialist team will help you in the following areas:
Sales & Marketing
Productivity can be easier with Job Management Softwares such .
AroFlo can be pivotal in helping you grow your business and manage your team.
As your business grows, you need different systems and AroFlo is a great system that will work in conjunction with you and your business, enabling the business to be less reliant on you.

Doing things that way leads to mistakes, lost business, and headaches for you and your clients.
Focus on your projects, getting new business and keeping your team happy, whilst the rest is automated through AroFlo.
