Biggest Wins in First 12 Months
How it all started…
Back in December 2019, before Covid-19 hit, husband and wife team Brock and Abby Hutchison of 05 Electrics met with our trade business coaching team to share how their business was travelling along and what they hoped to get out of their coaching program.
Managing the finances was frustrating.
Brock readily admitted he struggled with the financial management of their business, spending only 4 or 5 hours a week on it himself, and leaving the bulk of the paperwork to Abby.
A frustrated Abby found herself regularly chasing Brock, unable to complete her tasks until he had completed his.
"We have a better work/life balance, with having the structure, working better as a team, and communicating a bit better.” - Abby
Gaps in communication and organisation.
Abby recognised that they needed some better tools for organisation, communication and teamwork. Although they always managed to get through the week, a more structured approach would help them maximise their time and get the most out of their efforts.
"I'm not in the office at stupid o'clock anymore and ignoring the kids” - Brock
Other goals they wanted to achieve.
Marketing and advertising their business and identifying the market they wanted to serve, were also areas both wanted to upskill in as a key goal for the couple was to grow their business.
By increasing the number of jobs they had, they could afford to hire another qualified electrician and put additional vans on the road.
This would allow Brock to cut back on his 55+ hour weeks, and spend a little more time in the office helping Abby with the business owner side of things, and spending more time together as a family.
It’s definitely made a massive improvement, I actually know what a P&L is now. I know what tax is...That’s more Abby’s side of the business, but it’s still nice to look at the paperwork and actually understand what I’m looking at”
