How To Win Your Time Back

You and your team have knocked off for the week.  

They’re off to the pub to have a few hard-earned ice-cold beers.  

Whereas you trudge home to slug away at piles of paperwork and get a head-start on next week already.  

That work spills over into Saturday and you feel you don’t have the time to watch your kids play sport.  

And once in a while you’re putting in a shift in the office on a Sunday.  

The alarm goes off on Monday morning and you’re shattered.  

Last week (and just about every week before that) you spent between 60-70 hours working. 

But you honestly ask yourself, where does my time go?  

And to that question you somehow don’t have an answer.  

Not having time is one of the biggest issues facing trades business owners.  

It makes the businesses they run hopelessly inefficient.  

So what do you do to win back time and do the things that matter?  

Phil and I sat down to talk about how you can achieve exactly that.


  1. Learn to spend your time where it is most valuable 
  2. Trust the team you’ve hired to do your job for you 
  3. Win back your personal life
