That's right. If you're not priced to make a profit it won't matter about anything else you do. The number one reason why 99% of businesses don't end up doing well is based on the 2 steps below.
The first 2 things you need to do. NOTE - WARNING, these steps are probably not what you want to hear but they're what you NEED to hear.
1. You need to know what your bottom line is. How much money do you need to bring in each day to cover your expenses. Knowing this figure will set you up for the next step.
2. It won't matter how many customers you get if your pricing structure isn't correct - you'll always only just survive. Are your prices set correctly? (PS this has nothing to do with whether you're charging time and materials or 'flat rate'/'fixed pricing' or Quoting - it applies to all methods of pricing!)
Until you know both of these things and you're crystal clear on them, then you're wasting your time running a business. If you're tired of just surviving and you're over it all, you're at breaking point or you've just had enough - then take action and make the changes you need to now. If you want more money in your bank account and less stress in running your business......then put your hand up and take action. If you want to see how I can help your business then click on the "I'd like to Make More Money" button below and fill in the details, along with your mobile - yep we'll need this to have a chat. Otherwise you're free to call me on the number below.
One last thing, as much as I want to help as many other plumbers that are in the same boat as I was, I only have so much time available. Which means that we need to have that free phone call first to see if we can work together. Think of it as a discovery call - you learn some more about me and how I can help turn your business around, and I learn a bit more about your business and what's frustrating you the most and how best to help you.
Of course if you're already priced to make a profit and you're doing really well, you have great holidays with your family and there's money in the bank, then that's great. You don't need to do anything!
