Business Coaches for Construction & Trade
"We used to work 16 hour days, now, we're in the office just 6 hours a day."
Steven and Simon, Outdoor Vision Landscaping
Do you feel like, if your hands aren't dirty, then things won't get done? This mindset will only limit the growth of your trade and construction business. It's time to scale what you already started. At The Entourage, we help trade and construction businesses such as Outdoor Vision Landscaping get their hands off the tools and into their business through our business coaching programs.
Steve Gatter & Simon Wellard, Co-Owners of Outdoor Vision Landscaping
What to consider when hiring a coach for a construction & trade business?
Are you sick of long days on the tools followed by nights spent on business admin? When you started your trade and construction business, you dreamed of freedom - of time, money and lifestyle - but, as your business has grown, you feel as if you’ve bought yourself another job. You’re spending all of your time and energy in the business, but never giving yourself time to work on it.
You know you’d benefit from having a support system who truly understands what the small business owner journey entails and who can share with you their learnings in growing and scaling their own businesses. Does this sound like you?
With the help of a business coach by your side, you’ll have the right resources, tools and knowledge to take your business to the next level. But how do you find the right business coach that will suit your business needs and have the right experience in your local market and industry?
A good business coach that can help your construction and trade business will often have elements of the following — past experience in business themselves, access to resources and tools to guide you through your existing challenges, or a network of experts and other entrepreneurs that can bring further support and knowledge to support your specific industry.
These features are what will help you elevate your business, and with The Entourage, we offer all of this and more. We know that building a business is a skill, and it’s a skill we can teach you. Tailored made for your business’s current size, challenges and needs, you’ll find no other business coaching program like ours.
Trade & Construction Success Stories
Scott McLaren did his biggest month ever of $150,000 with The Entourage's help
3 years after starting Scott Electrics, Scott McLaren felt that while his business was doing well, he was stuck in a 'find the job, do the job' mentality, meaning he was doing everything as the business owner. He knew he had to change something.
Scott joined The Entourage's Elevate business coaching program, immersing himself in the knowledge and expertise of the community to immediately see increased results. And even at the height of the pandemic when the business faced near imminent closure, through the help of his business coach, he was able to secure his biggest month ever of $150,000 and put all of his team back to work.
Steve and Simon went from 60-hour weeks to 2-day weeks with The Entourage's help
With over 15 years experience in Outdoor Vision Landscaping, Steve Gatter and Simon Wellard's business was doing well. However, both Steve and Simon constantly found themselves stuck on the tools, working on site, and still working on the business at home as well.
The pair didn't know how to work smarter, not harder, which is what our business coaches at The Entourage helped them with as soon as they joined our Elevate program. Helping them create structure in their business, Steve and Simon were able to hit their biggest months ever, turning over $1.2 million, while cutting down 60-hour weeks to 2-day weeks.

How our business coaches can help construction & trade businesses
At The Entourage, we believe that no one person knows everything there is to know about building a business which is why our business coaches have access to Australia’s leading experts and advisors to help guide our members in the right direction. Having transformed thousands of businesses already across 150+ industries, our members across construction and trade, and other industries, are able to address their business’s specific needs with the right knowledge, tools, and resources provided by their entourage of experts, advisors and coaches.
When you join our business coaching programs, you’ll obtain a deeper understanding of all the pillars of business that are fundamental to every multi-million dollar business’s success, construction and trade, or any other industry — Marketing, Sales, Finance, Operations, People & Leadership, and Product. With the help of your business coach, you’ll be able to turn your business into one that no longer requires you to be on the tools by helping you overcome your construction and trade business’ specific challenges including:
You’re stuck in the day-to-day operations
From bookkeeping to training your staff, meeting clients and getting the jobs done, you’re spread so thin that you’re not able to give anything your full attention. You feel like, if you’re not getting your hands dirty, things won’t get done. But this has to stop.
Finding (and keeping) good staff
To grow your business beyond you, it's always a question of WHO, not how. But it's so difficult to recruit and retain reliable staff - and this could be damaging for any small business owner. How can you bring on people who won't leave you in the lurch?
You need a marketing & sales plan
All growth is marketing and sales led. You know that in order to reach more people, find more customers and grow, you need a fool-proof marketing and sales strategy, but you don’t know the strategy or tactics required to get started.
Choosing the right technology
Is your technology enabling your business' growth, or limiting it? Trade and construction businesses that want to grow need to be built on and supported by the right technology stack. Can you say yours is?
You don’t have the right support system
You know you’d benefit from having a network of like-minded entrepreneurs who understand the entrepreneurial and small business journey, and who could act as accountability partners to help you see through your goals.
You want guidance but don’t know where to look
You don’t have the capacity or bandwidth to test and fail right now. You want to learn what you need to do...and what not to do from mentors who are where you want to be.
