Roger Wakefield of Texas Green Plumbing is a man who knows how to keep busy. After 40 successful years in the trades, he’s worn many hats — master plumber, entrepreneur, speaker, and, as of most recently, YouTuber with over 50,000 subscribers.
We were thrilled to have Roger join us for a two-part interview on The Sharpest Tool™ podcast. As you would assume, he has a tremendous amount of insight into what it takes to thrive in the home services industry, and we were eager to hear everything he had to say.
In part one of the interview, Roger tells us stories from his long journey from plumber to business owner. He also reveals some strategies for success he learned along the way, including why properly training your team is so important and how best to spot growth opportunities during periods of unpredictability.
For part two of our conversation, we dive deep into all things digital. Texas Green Plumbing has a robust online presence, and Roger explains how this focus on social media has led to outsized local growth. We also cover messaging, networking, and why your website serves as a crucial first impression for potential customers.
There are few people in the home services field with as much experience as Roger Wakefield, so we hope you enjoy these interviews and can apply some of his wisdom to your own business’s growth goals.
