What is Heroes On Hand?

The Heroes On Hand- are the trades people and construction businesses that on a daily basis create heat, comfort, safety, security. They create beautiful buildings and spaces. Companies that are either sole traders or have a team and are starting to create a brand in their community.

I am currently a qualified gas engineer and i have been in the construction industry for over 13 years. Previously I have managed teams in retail and Leisure and been a personal trainer and coach. I have run several businesses and grown one from just me to a team of over 25. We have had a fleet and premises, fired and hired, been knocked, been let down, been imitated. Diversified and re branded. Just about every dip of the roller coaster we have experienced.

After selling the shares in my business and previously working with a number of trades to either trouble shoot a specific problem or work with them month to month- I created Heroes On Hand to help support the business owners that may be brilliant in their line of work but may need a partner when it comes to building processes or pushing things to the next level.

We work in the following ways:

1.Vision: There are initial either 90 minute planning sessions, half a day vision session and a half a day finance and forecasting session.

2. Journey: After the vision, strategy and forecast are built, we can work on a monthly basis working on specific areas of the business to achieve goals set against the vision and financial forecast.

3.Legacy: When your vision is set, the annual forecast has been created and the first round of quarterly goals have been achieved. The roles & responsibilities are clear within the company. There may be a need for me to fill a position in your business whilst we get to the next stage. This could be a 6 month or 12 month position. Working on my own targets within a set role and leading with you, the rest of the team along the journey to create the beginnings of a legacy for your business.

What do you do with your weekends? Often running and growing a business means some short term sacrifice. That’s ok. But if it’s every evening or every weekend than there needs to be change- either within your mindset or through your processes. If your weekends are admin, invoicing, credit control, bank reconciliation, materials reconciliation, returning 3 day old voicemails or emails- then it’s time to make some changes. Book a call. Get in touch. Don’t repeat the same way of working and the same results in 2020. #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

The first step is the toughest... it’s where the fear of change and the knowing that you need a mindset shift are fighting each other. Whilst important to look at the summit the reality is taking the first step takes the most energy. When you do... That momentum and energy fuels the next few steps. Soon it becomes clear that whilst it’s an achievement reaching the summit. Each step is another goal completed and each goal completed makes the journey to the top the experience and education you actually needed all along. As soon as you reach the summit you’ll set your sights on something higher. So stay present and enjoy each step. #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

@wealth Thanks for posting.... Everything comes down to choices. Most of us say we don’t have time but it’s priority. I’ve been guilty myself... but even 2 hours of TV a night, which I totally get maybe your source of relaxation, inspiration or education, could mean 14 hours saved for learning a new skill or pursuing a new goal. It’s not time - it’s priority. And what you make a priority is your choice... #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

To all the trades people getting the job done, fixing the issue, managing clients, looking after family, growing the business, seeing friends, getting exercise, working on personal development and mindfulness. To all those spending the evenings chasing payments, completing quotes, replying to emails, reading articles, posting their work- you are worthy of success and those that know- know. Even if those closest don’t always get it. Keep moving forward. #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

This is why transformation and long term change is so difficult. Business or personal. No breakthrough without a certain amount of acceptance and self awareness- then a breakdown and finally a breakthrough. A Change of physiology and circumstances before real change. Then long lasting change can occur. This is why it’s essential you listen to your team, coach, mentors- they’ll offer relevant experience and a perspective you couldn’t have seen it from. All this aids the breakthrough to transformational change a lot quicker. The trades person on the tools turning over 50-100k needs a mindset shift to become the managing director of a trades business turning over £1million+ (of course with the target profit margins) #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

This was a message on a menu in a restaurant I was in yesterday. In short it thanks the customer for choosing local as 60p out of every pound stays in the community and they employ 30 local people. This is why I’m such a big supporter of @bniukireland and how it supports the growth of local businesses. #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

Building your business piece by piece and balancing the elements of business, family and health is a continuous learning curve. Remember if the business pieces fall you can rebuild!! Make sure family and health are at the core of why you build your business. These are a lot more difficult to strengthen once gone. #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

What’s your idea? what’s the vision?what’s the plan? what difference can your creativity make to a person? Or to people? or a community? Whatever it is... Begin. You don’t have to have every element figured out. Chase progress not perfection. Funnily enough- figuring things out along the way is always more fun than actually reaching one of your goals. #tradesmen #plumbing #plumber #construction #contractor #plumberslife #tradeswomen #worldplumbers #bluecollar #skilledtrades #builder #plumbers #plumbinglife #plumbersworld #contractorsofinsta #plumbingcontractor #masterplumber #bluecollarlife #buynow #carpenter #tradeswoman #plumbersofinstagram #plumbingengineer #hvaclife #licensedplumber #plumblife #homebuilder #plumbproud #plumberlife #bhfyp

I think most business owners felt a little different growing up- now students have an outlet through business studies even at GCSE level. That said the entrepreneurial spirit doesn’t need a qualification - if you see it in a son, daughter, niece, nephew- then help them explore it. It helps teach them life skills you won’t get in a classroom. Watching my sons sell their time through completing others homework, raising money through completing extra jobs at home, in order to buy products then sell at school- makes me proud. Especially when they pitch to me why I should invest £5 in their next round of Lucozade Sports for the school football team!! Well one boys. Well done. #businesscoach #entrepreneur #business #lifecoach #businessowner #success #entrepreneurship #businesstips #coach #coaching #motivation #entrepreneurlife #businesswoman #businesscoaching #entrepreneurmindset #womeninbusiness #smallbusiness #girlboss #entrepreneurs #femaleentrepreneur #marketing #inspiration #leadership #businessmentor #businessgrowth #businessman #onlinebusiness #successcoach #mentor #bhfyp
