If you own a small business, right now, you’re holding on to every single spare penny. You’re stretching your staff like never before. You are under constant pressure to perform well with few resources. And, you’re looking to plug every hole in your business.

Perhaps this sounds familiar: you are a “trades” guy who wants to be your own boss, and provide a better future for your family. You are “all in” financially and emotionally. You are very good at your trade, but your business frustrates you. Your hours are long, and you hardly see your family. Profits are disappointing, and you worry about cash flow every day. It’s time to fill the business knowledge gap that is holding you back!

My guest today understands the special challenges faced by trades businesses, because he himself comes from a blue collar background. For over 30 years, he has built profitable and effective businesses, with hands-on experience in sales, operations, customer service, and management processes.

He’s also the instructor of a new business management training program at Fraser Valley Continuing Education in Langley, where they cut through the “fluff” and get down to real skills to manage your small business better, or move up in a larger one. He is also a well-known volunteer with the Rotary Club of Langley, he is a Past Assistant Governor in District 5050 of Rotary International and is an experienced training facilitator, helping to train over 500 Rotary Club Presidents annually.

He is also the author of “Leaky Bucket of Profits: plug the holes that drain your business of cash, profits, and your happiness.”
