Show Notes

Running a business is not easy–but it can be made simple.

Here are 3 tips to help you run your plumbing business and grow it into the successful, self-sustaining, multi-million dollar business that it can be.


The right tools

The first tip is to get the right tools for your business.

We are not talking about wrenches, pipes, or faucets. We are talking about tools that can help you run your business more efficiently and effectively.

One of these tools that we highly recommend is Trainual

Trainual is a software that allows you to create and document all the processes and procedures in your business. You can use it to train new hires, onboard existing staff, and ensure consistency and quality across your team.

With Trainual, you can save time and energy by automating and delegating tasks that don’t require your direct involvement. You can also track and measure the performance of your employees and identify areas for improvement.

Trainual is a power tool that can help you run your business the smart way–by working ON your business, not FOR your business.


Let your business thrive

The second tip is to let your business thrive by letting go of control.

We know how tempting it is to micromanage every aspect of your business. After all, you are the owner, and you know best how things should be done.

But this is not how businesses thrive.

Businesses thrive when they are self-sustaining well-oiled machines that can run without you in the picture.

This means that you need to hire the right people, teach them the right processes, and allow them to grow the business for you.

This way, you can focus on the big picture and the strategic direction of your business. You can also enjoy more freedom and flexibility in your life.

And if you ever decide to sell your business, you will have a valuable asset that can attract buyers and investors.

So, if you truly want your plumbing business to thrive, you need to let go of control and trust your team.


Start simple

The third and final tip is to start simple and avoid overcomplicating things.

Many business owners make the mistake of trying to do everything at once. They have too many ideas, too many goals, too many plans. They want to create the perfect brand, the perfect website, the perfect marketing campaign.

But this only leads to frustration and overwhelm. They end up doing nothing or doing everything poorly.

The truth is, you don’t NEED to be perfect from the start. You just need to start.

Start with small steps. Simple processes. Just one thing at a time.

Then, as you grow and learn, you can refine and improve your processes. You can add more features and functions to your brand, website, or marketing campaign. You can scale up and expand your reach.

The key is to start simple and build up from there.

And there you have it! The key to working smart, NOT hard, to grow your plumbing business.

By applying these tips, you can grow your plumbing business into a successful, self-sustaining, multi-million dollar business that can serve more customers and make more money.

So what are you waiting for? Start today and see the difference!
