It depends upon which country you live, if you are living in corrupt country where there is commision in pay from every contractor, carpenter etc. Then you can't follow architect or other persons more.

I assumed renovating for profit was different to renovating to live in. I've done both. At home I tend to agonize over decisions, consider different permutations, design effects and horror of horrors change my mind. On a project for profit the decisions are always easy, strategy is in place, budget guidelines set and time is of the essence. Even without trade skills other skills can come into play including people skills, good relationship building (inclusive of prompt payment), purchasing and obviously project management.
