I haven’t answered the question yet. Even though my specialty has been helping trade and specialty contractors move up the scale both in terms of money and lifestyle I always have difficulty giving myself advice or benchmarking my own results. As I often say it’s not just about the money.
In order to get a clearer answer to the question I have to reflect back on the contractors whose lives touched mine and see what were the traits that put them into one of those four categories – poor, average, clever, wise. I’ve named them all Joe:
- Poor Joe
- Joe Average
- Clever Joe
- Joseph Wise
