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.

BEFORE

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.

NOW

"We have a better work/life balance, with having the structure, working better as a team, and communicating a bit better.” - Abby

BEFORE

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.

NOW

"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”
- Brock

Big milestones achieved

Brock and Abby shared feedback about how their business operates today almost two years since joining our program

Business Growth

Despite the challenges facing many businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic, Brock and Abby’s business has gone from strength to strength since they invested in a specialist business coach for electricians.

Confidence with their finances

Having an expert business coach to explain the fundamentals of running a successful tradie business has given Brock more confidence and an interest in the financial side of running his business, rather than just relying on Abby.

Getting on top of their finances allowed them to buy a second business and move into a factory

With their improved understanding of their business finances, they have now managed to add to their business portfolio, acquiring an oven repair business.

Their new business started generating profits straight away and complements their existing core electrical business.

They have expanded their operations, and are now renting factory space, something they had been hoping to do for years and has now been possible.

Better time management, and better work-life balance

They have grown and developed their team to be able to take on more responsibility, and added extra vans, which has freed Brock up to spend one day a week dedicated to developing and building their businesses.

Brock achieved his original goal of reducing his work hours to a more manageable level, since starting with Business Benchmark Group he now works 20 hours less a week.

This improved Brock and Abby’s working relationship as they could finally agree on defined roles for everyone and got out of the rut they were in. Their family also benefited from the additional time spent together in the evenings and weekends.

"It’s brought our business to the next level...I never, ever would have thought we'd be in a position to be buying another business and going into a rental factory now."
- Abby

“We definitely wouldn't be in the position to have bought a new van AND rented a factory AND bought another business!"
- Brock
