Is FEAR holding back your success?

The #1 challenge that we see Trades Business Owners struggling with is not something that’s obvious.

It’s that sneaky human emotion that stops us succeeding. It’s FEAR!

In this week’s podcast episode we’re going to show you how you can beat fear and start

taking actions that will push your business to the next level.

There’s a weird thing about fear. Often you don’t know that you’re experiencing it.

That’s because fear only lives in your head. It’s not real.

But, it is often the reason why you “Feel a bit off” or think to yourself “I’m not feeling my best”.

When that happens there’s a good chance you’re simply afraid of doing something. The good news is when you learn to identify that you’re experiencing fear, you can do something about it.

You can take action. Which will lead to huge improvements in your business and life.

Today Tony and Phil will give you the tools to ID when fear is your problem, and how to deal with it.

When you use these tools you’ll stop procrastinating. Feel less frustration and more self worth. And you’ll start getting the success you want!

Let’s get to it…


  • Be able to take action (especially on things you’re avoiding)
  • Feel powerful and watch as your confidence grows and your self worth increases
  • Create results in your business and life by generating momentum
