With the federal election in full swing, and most Australians looking to the future to ensure they can provide for their familes, if you are a tradie, with a good business, you may be one of the lucky few who are doing extremely well.
Tradies Earn More Than Lawyers?
The article above provides some interesting statisitics relating tradies such as plumbers and electricians to other higher paying professions such as lawyers. To me, this seems like a bit of a generalisation, and to be sure, not all tradies are doing this well. It depends on a number of thingd including location, size of business, age of business, and the individual, i.e how well you actually run your business.
Once thing we constanlty convey to our clients here at HomeGiraffe is not so much how to make money, but how you need to focus on actually running a great business, with amazing customer service and a great service or product.
We would almost guarantee that the tradie hourly rates indicated in this article relate to individuals who are running great businesses and focus on the customer.
In any case it’s an interesting read, and probably an eye opener for many.
