“As a tradesman, my skills are at the highest level, but this always benefited someone else’s business. The next step was to start my own business! I knew it was what I needed to do but the decision to start your own contracting business is daunting. I knew nothing about how to run it and hated the idea of all the book work. I was introduced to Contractor Toolbox, who offered to do all of the paperwork and financial management for me, so I could focus on what I’m good at on the tools. Engaging with Contractor Toolbox has been the best outcome for me as a new business owner, as everything is in control and I know I’m avoiding any early pitfalls that many new businesses fall into. It’s a small price to pay for support and expert advice to protect my hard work and ultimately my family’s future.”
There is so much to think about in relation to the actual job, from customer service, booking appointments, staying up-to-date with industry standards. If I had to think about the tax and accounting stuff too, it would be too much and I would have no life. Thankfully Contractor Toolbox do that for me and keep me informed so I don’t have to worry. Having Contractor Toolbox means I don’t have to waste time on paperwork, I have more time to do what I want to do and me that’s a good thing.
“When starting my business, I always had aspirations to one day grow it into a decent size company with a strong workforce.
I commenced operation with myself as the only worker, and through hard work, perseverance and great guidance, I am proudly the owner of a business which currently has over 25 staff. Contractor Toolbox highlighted the importance of “planning for growth” and as such all my goals were designed around how I could develop my business both financially and operationally. The Contractor Toolbox team have been invaluable in my Company’s growth and development, through coaching, guiding and challenging me to achieve the best results possible. A wonderful service, with genuine care about me and my business, Contractor Toolbox have a permanent place in my business”.
