How To Win Large Jobs or Projects

If there’s one thing I miss from my days as an employee, it's the certainty.  

Getting home at the same time every day and being able to enjoy time with friends & family. 

Don't get me wrong, being a business owner is much better than being an employee... 

But having a guaranteed income does have its advantages. 

That's why landing large jobs is appealing. 

They give you 6-12 months' work that's worth decent money. 

And instead of constantly finding, pricing, completing and invoicing lots of little jobs 

Big jobs mean you only have one thing to focus on. 

The only problem is... 

They’re notoriously hard jobs to land (without slashing your prices) 

But somebody must win them. 

Which is why I sat down with Tender expert Jason Coony where he shared the tricks you can use to win more large jobs (85% of trades business owners miss these simple things) 


  1. The processes which 95% of businesses ignore when pricing for jobs 
  2. avoid the mistakes most make when pricing work 
  3. Consistent income from recurring work
