Hi guys. Have you ever heard the phrase “You don’t know what you don’t know”?

Tony from Profitable Tradie here and I want to tell you a little bit about one of the key lessons I have learned in business, both with our own businesses and coaching plumbers, electricians, drainers and guest fitters for the last eight years. And it is all about not knowing what you don’t know. So stay tuned.

Hi guys do you sometimes look at some of your mates or other businesses in your town or your area that seemed really successful? They seem to grow their business, they seem to make more money, drive a nice car, have good holidays and generally seem a bit more relaxed than you.

And you wonder how they do it. Do you wonder have they got a secret recipe or have they just cooked things up in a different way? And have they read or learned something that you don’t know? Well the answer is pretty simple, the answer is yes. And one of the key things to growing your business is to realise that you don’t actually know what you don’t know.
