New Recruit

The New Recruit level is the first 30 day level of our tradie business coaching program designed to test the applicant and enable them to show us if they have what it takes!

It also checks to ensure some of the basic foundations are in place before we continue on an amazing growth journey together.

All participants in the New Recruit level must complete 100% of the activities successfully and activities are by no means complex or time consuming.

It’s more the demonstration of discipline and willingness to getting activities completed that we are looking for.

Handling Phone Calls (like a Pro!)

Introduced by Edward Plant, Institute of Couples in Business.

The lifeline to a Tradie business, in terms of new work, is the phone. Yet so many of us don’t really want to talk with anyone and see the phone as a distraction.

Furthermore, handling phone calls, your voicemail greetings and leaving messages for others is handled poorly and yields poor results. Getting this seemingly small component of business right, means so much for growth journey ahead.
