Toolbox for the Trades

Devynn Thompson entered the trades with her husband after he decided to establish his own plumbing business.


They faced many challenges along the way and realized they had to learn from their mistakes and embrace constructive criticism from their employees.


By connecting with people in the trades, going through training, having a coach who keeps them accountable, and learning how to delegate tasks, they managed to grow and transform their business into the success story it is today.
