“The skilled tradesman brings his intelligence and his discipline to his work. His job is to take ownership of a project. He creates something that wasn’t there before—something new, something better, something more valuable. And in that, the skilled tradesman is the kindred spirit of every entrepreneur.”


Dealing with the frustrations that come when someone sees you as a skilled tradesman, hires you for your experience and knowledge, and then proceeds to disregard your advice. If the pattern runs true to form, this will end when the client is disappointed with the end result and that disappointment is then directed toward the craftsman for the quality of the work. Why couldn’t you take my bad decisions and make something great out of it? I thought you were good at your job.
