Hi. My name is Andy Burrows and I help the owners of trades-based businesses like you address your business frustrations and help you get a life. I specialise in mentoring and coaching business owners associated with the construction industry: builders, electricians, plumbers, HVAC and other specialist contractors.

The typical business owner I work with loves what they do, is happiest solving technical challenges for their clients, but feels held back by all the other stuff that is essential in running a successful business. That may be building a marketing and sales system, clients from hell who are over demanding and then slow to pay; staff who can’t come up to the owner’s standard of work and result in too many call-backs, or the demands of all the quoting and administration that keep you up all hours of the night, rather than being with your family.


Even if you have gone through extensive trade training the chances are it did not include much coaching, if anything, on how to run a business. Correct? You are expected to pick that knowledge up along the way, via the school-of-hard-knocks.

That’s the slow, unproductive way of doing it. You might think it is the cheaper way, but the mistakes you are likely to make along the way, together with the longer time it takes to gain the experience, is likely to be costing you thousands of dollars and a whole lot of extra stress.

The good news is that these problems are all solvable by partnering with an industry-specific business coach.
