Why Doing the Work Yourself Is Costing You Thousands

A mistake that most trades business owners make that they are not usually aware of is doing all the work themselves. This mistake is because of their understanding that it will save them money and time. While this is true to some point, they don’t know that they are limiting themselves to more opportunities to expand their businesses, therefore costing them thousands of dollars.

They also discuss why most business owners give in to the voice in their head that limits them. Furthermore, they tackle why a trades business owner needs to position their business to scale.
