Wise Up Wednesday: Are You A Specialist Contractor Or A “Subby”?

Yesterday one of our Client’s told me that he had a massive light bulb moment at our “Win Work-Get Paid-Make Money” conference earlier this month. You know one of those times when something really important suddenly clicks into place in your brain.

And what had hit him right between the eyes was that he was a Specialist Contractor, and not just a “Subby”!

He realised that what we have been saying over and over again in our blog, in our Linkedin group, in our Wise Up Wednesdays, and at our conference was all true. The Contractors haven’t got a clue and couldn’t build anything without Specialist Contractors!

And he was indeed a Specialist Contractor because he was an expert at doing what he does, whereas the only thing that most Contractors are good at is screwing their supply chain.

The conference also provided the opportunity to share his experiences and talk to his fellow Specialist Contractors from all over the country, and despite the fact the economy is improving, Specialist Contractors are still suffering from many of the problems that have dogged the Construction and Engineering industries for the last few years.

And one of the main problems is that Contractors treat you like just another “Subby”.

You Have A Choice To Make!

So, now you have a choice to make.

You can think and act like just another Subby, take whatever crap the Contractor throws at you, accept his poor payment practices and onerous terms. Or you can say;

“Hang on a minute! I’m not a Subby, I’m a Specialist Contractor, I’m an expert and what I do, and you couldn’t build anything without us!”
