What’s in the course?

This is a self-paced course designed for you to complete, when you can. Most course participants take approximately six weeks to work through the modules. It’s entirely up to you and your schedule! Here’s what’s in each module of the course.

Module 1

First up, you’ll establish where you sit within our Start Up, Scale Up, Sell Up model. You’ll discover what isn’t working right now, zero in on what’s holding you back, and design a Game Plan to create the life and business of your dreams.

Module 2

Time is money, so use it wisely! You need to identify and eliminate time-wasting habits or tasks, and learn how to delegate them to others. Let’s get 4-6 hours in your week back together, guaranteed.

Module 3

Next, you’ll use the ‘Payment Leverage Timeline’ to pull in debt fast and ease the pressure of mounting cash flow issues to get you out of the red zone. You’re not a bank. Put an end to those sleepless nights.

Module 4

Then, it’s time to work on increasing the conversion rate of every call (this means happy A-grade customers willing to pay good money). Plus, win more quotes. We’ll share our 9-step ‘The Call Converter’ and ‘The Quote Converter’.

Module 5

Following this, we’ll focus on streamlining your materials. As a trade business owner, all we sell is labour and materials, it’s critical to ‘Consolidate Your Inventory’ with the exact steps that’ll save you a minimum of $12,000 a year!

Module 6

You can’t do this alone. You’ll need the best team around you. It starts with driving a high-performance team through conducting the right toolbox meetings, setting and managing KPIs and using the latest technology to stay connected.

Module 7

Now, you’ll be ready to understand your hourly rate! You can actually make more money, more profit, by slowing down. With real-live data, you can switch your workflow and increase your average-dollar sale on every job.

Module 8

Are you using your job management platform to its full potential to break the cycle of chaos in your trade business? In this final module, you’ll understand why your job management software is glue that holds your business together.

Plus a BONUS ‘The Sales Success Series’

A 14-part, step-by-step video series to upskill your teams selling techniques (that we use everyday in our trade business) that are a win-win for your business and customers.

About Andy & Angela

We’re Andy and Angela Smith, owners of Dr. DRiP Plumbing, co-founders of Lifestyle Tradie and authors of Start Up, Scale Up, Sell Up. Since 2009, we’ve been teaching tradies in business how to start up, scale up and sell up using a proven step-by-step formula we created after hitting rock bottom in business ourselves. We climbed out the hard way, learning our biggest lessons through expensive trial and error.

Think back to why you became a trade business owner in the first place. Is it working out the way you thought it would? Most tradies have aspirations to be their own boss one day. Here’s the thing: TAFE only taught you the rules and regulations. Your first boss only taught you how to swing a hammer. You’ve never been taught how to become a business owner, have you? That’s where Build An Unbreakable Trade Business can help.

Our lives were in complete chaos. Now, Andy is completely off the tools. He chooses to spend about one-hour on Dr. DRiP each week. Want to get your life back, too?
