Looking through past editions of your local yellow pages you find the same plumbing companies listed year after year with few additions and subtractions. A few companies start and a few companies disappear every year. Why are so few new companies challenging the older, more established companies? Why are they not buying costly advertisements?
Experience has shown me that an ambitious and competent plumber with a winning personality, and superior people and mechanical skills, makes himself indispensable to his company by winning the trust and confidence of the company's customers. After a while, the plumber, being naturally ambitious, begins to reason: I know how much we charge for material and how much I make: my company is taking the lion's share.
You can also hire a plumber for emergency plumbing services in Keysborough.
He tests the water with customers that he knows and gets an enthusiastic response when he suggests that if he were in business for himself, he could reduce their bill (he happily imagines bringing home more money working on his own).
Finally, he makes the decision, obtains his license, and begins his new business. As it turns out, he was correct. He does make more money, the customers love him and the future looks bright. After a time, because he has fulfilled his customer's needs, the increasing load of new and happy, satisfied repeat customers becomes a challenge; he does not have the time to service them.
At that point, he decides to hire someone to do some of the work that he cannot handle effectively and efficiently. He advertises and interviews various candidates and chooses one he hopes will represent his new company in a positive light. In short order, he discovers that being an employer requires the skills of an administrator and that it is a time-consuming job in itself.
