Tradies In Business

By Warrick Bidwell and Nicole Cox

This is literally a podcast for tradies in business. Whether you're a plumber, electrician, builder, motor mechanic, landscaper, tiler, glazier, painter, carpenter, concretor or any of the myriad of trades and contractors in Australia, this podcast has been produced with you in mind. Your hosts, Warrick Bidwell and Nicole Cox, were both born into tradie families and have first hand experience of the gut busting, money stress and pressures that trade businesses can place on their owners! They also strongly believe in the opportunity that exists for all tradie business owners to create a flexible, financially secure business for now and for their families future. Waz and Nic interview guests on a range of topics such as marketing, finances, human resources, legal issues, mindset, motivation, physical and mental health, industry updates and more! They love a laugh and a good story so tune in for a unique look at how to 'get off the tools' and create the trade business you really wanted!
