Episode 114: The 2024 Trades Business Survival Guide

Business has been uncertain over the last few years. 

2020: Covid 

2021: Lockdowns 

2022: Inflation 

2023: Interest Rate Spikes 

And now in 2024 the forecast is for depression and a decline in the construction industry. 

If you think that things are going to get any better soon, you’re sadly mistaken.  

We’re in a time where businesses die.  

And it’s only the best ones which will come out the other side.  

So here’s a thought experiment. 

Is your business in the position to survive when things keep getting worse? 

If you’ve struggled to get through the last few years, survival might be a bridge too far. 

But you don’t have to accept that reality.  

The businesses which do the right things will not only survive but thrive once the downturn is over. 

Nobody wants to go out of business or leave money on the table. 

So for that reason, the guys recorded a Free Training on “How To Navigate 2024” 

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN FROM LISTENING TO TODAY’S PODCAST: 

  1. Your Business will be run with confidence of future growth 
  2. Mindset shift away from limiting beliefs 
  3. Less stress around business and the economy
