Dan Dowdy

Our founder, Dan Dowdy, was inspired to create Built For The Trades after decades of leading a successful home service business that experienced million-dollar growth year after year. At some point in his career as a leader, he found that his company had hit a revenue plateau that he couldn’t break away from. In an attempt to make a change, he joined various coaching groups that didn’t seem to be making any difference. It wasn’t until he became a student of business leadership that he discovered the secret: you must develop your own personal level of leadership before your can lift the growth lid off your company.

From here, he developed his proven leadership program, “The Four Stages of Leadership.” By expanding his knowledge and improving his leadership, Dan was able to take his business to the next level, transforming it into a five-star company that is set for growth and looked upon as one of the best companies in the Austin, Texas market.

Dan is incredibly proud to be a tradesman and is passionate about serving those around him. After finding success in the home service industry, he is ready to use his knowledge and experience to help others achieve success. He is focused on transforming home service businesses by encouraging leadership development. Dan is driven by the desire to strengthen and grow the trades industry and help his fellow tradesmen and women succeed. He believes that the key to success if “finding awesome and copying it!”
