The Solo Contractor’s TookKit: Essential Knowledge for All Blue Collar Micro Business Owners (working title)
Working with your hands is a privilege, as is being your own boss. The downside to being a solo entrepreneur is that you have to do everything related to running your business, as well as “do business”. In an environment (the construction industry) where mentoring is under-valued, “The Solo Contractor’s Toolkit” provides the information and inspiration you need to go out on your own, providing invaluable insight on topics like effectively communicating with clients, purchasing the right tools, and handling the bid and payment process. Your integrity is your greatest asset and customer referrals are your bread and butter; this practical guide bolsters your confidence to accept jobs on which you are qualified and prepared to perform.
