5 Essential Habits of Australia's Best Paid Tradies
August 21, 2017
You work hard. But are you getting paid for it? The highest paid tradies in Sydney earn around $30 an hour more than the average. That adds up to $60,000 a year. How do they do it? These are the five things we see the most.
1. Stop giving away your profits to suppliers
The biggest difference between successful tradies and unsuccessful tradies is that they keep more of what they earn for themselves. Like your concrete sales rep? Great. Like them enough to pay them $10,000 a year out of your own pocket? Didn't think so.
Sounds simple but this point is common to almost all of the best paid tradies. When customers are happy they'll pay you more, pay you faster and pay you again in the future (whether for their own use or through referrals). Oneflare reports that businesses with a profile rating of 90 or above win 50% more jobs.
So go the extra mile: 15 minutes with a broom might be worth thousands of dollars in future work.
