Overcoming the 3 Biggest Challenges for Service Business Owners
by Mike J. Agugliaro
Starting your own HVAC, electrical or plumbing business involves great risk, but there can also be great reward. Most of you are spending hours on your service business, minutes with your family, and are reaping little reward. At CEO Warrior, we provide you with the business coaching services and tools to overcome the struggles you will face along the way.
Through disciplined focus and massive action you can overcome any challenge that comes your way. We’ve outlined the three biggest challenges most of you face and how to overcome them:
- Brand Recognition: A company has to be memorable to be at the forefront of customers’ minds. How many times have you seen a white service truck with a logo on it? Probably several times a day. Set your company apart from the competition by wrapping your service vehicles in company colors, and use that color combo on everything that your company uses. At Gold Medal Service, we wrap our trucks in yellow and black, and that same theme is seen at our building, on our marketing materials, website and anything else we do.
- Maintaining Quality: For many owners and customers, growth comes with the concern of the level of service not being preserved. Maintaining quality while continuing to grow starts with hiring people who value the same level of service and implementing processes that provide personal service to customers.
- Owner Dependence: Your business should be able to run if you’re not there. If your company can’t function without you, then it is time to make a change. Employing the right people and putting the right processes in place allows you the freedom to spend time with your family without the constant worry that your business won’t be there when you get back.
Actively working to overcome these challenges means a better future for you, your business and your employees. This barely scratches the surface of the challenges we all face as business owners. If you want to understand the secrets of business mastery, get started with CEO Warrior today.
