We’re Andy and Angela Smith, owners of Dr. DRiP Plumbing, co-founders of Lifestyle Tradie and authors of Start Up, Scale Up, Sell Up. Since 2009, we’ve been teaching tradies in business how to start up, scale up and sell up using a proven step-by-step formula we created after hitting rock bottom in business ourselves. We climbed out the hard way, learning our biggest lessons through expensive trial and error.
Think back to why you became a trade business owner in the first place. Is it working out the way you thought it would? Most tradies have aspirations to be their own boss one day. Here’s the thing: TAFE only taught you the rules and regulations. Your first boss only taught you how to swing a hammer. You’ve never been taught how to become a business owner, have you? That’s where our online training can help.
Our lives were in complete chaos. Now, Andy is completely off the tools. He chooses to spend about one-hour on Dr. DRiP each week. Want to get your life back, too?
