The Pricing Mistake 93% Of Tradies Make

All right, back costing. Big topic, number one priority for you to get a handle on
in your plumbing business. So are you keeping track of the projects you do?
I’m not talking about the little projects like the small maintenance jobs.
You should be able to figure those out when you send your invoices out and make

If you find yourself saying, “Hey, I’m too busy. I don’t have time,” think about how that language affects you. If it makes you feel out of control, a bit anxious, a bit stressed, that doesn’t actually help you get the job done. Look, the reality is: we’ve all got 24 hours a day in which to get the job done. Some of us are just using it better than others. Bill Gates has a bigger hourly rate compared to you and I. It’s really a question of choice.
