1 Million skilled workers will be missing from our workforce in the next 3-5 years. Baby boomers, the largest part of our workforce, are aging out of the system. With 80% of her own plumbing business clients being women, Susan Frew wonders if the answer to this crisis might be women themselves.
Using her Business Coaching experience having coached 17 different trades to success Susan Frew now uses her experience to propel their family plumbing business. They grew Sunshine Plumbing Heating Air from 177K,000 in 2012 to projected 3M in 2017.

Their secret to success is providing outstanding customer service and marketing solely on their reputation for excellence. They use a “12 points of LOVE philosophy†in serving their customers.
