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 break the cycle of financial hardship and stress to create the trade business you really wanted!
TIB181 The Question You Must Ask and Answer If You're Serious About Getting Results
Do you suffer from Goldfish syndrome? What is success REALLY? There's a secret to getting what you want and it starts with working out what that is. Do you actually know what you want from YOUR business? Your life? Waz and Nic ask sooooo many questions and luckily, they also show you how to get the answers to these so you can create clarity in your actions.
TIB180 Deep dive episode on 'How To Think Outside The Square'
Waz and Nic hit record on this episode without really knowing where it would go... it's not just their usual rabbit hole... they get pretty deep into how we tend to think about problems the same way, how to recognise when we are, how to change that, and why you even want to know!
TIB179 How to start (or fix) a trade business from the beginning
One of the top 10 questions Waz and Nic get asked by business owners new and existing is "what should I do when starting a trade business?" We dig into the 5 key things you need to do BEFORE you start marketing and taking on clients... and some of them might surprise you!
F#ck It Friday Number 62 - There was this one time... and I'll never do that again
What would happen if, after one bad experience, we never did that thing again? We take a slightly light-hearted look at what Waz refers to as 'the dishwasher syndrome'
TIB178 Are you a self-abuser? How to know and what to do about it
We all know that maintaining and servicing our tools is important to keep them running well. There's a tool that we all have at our disposal that has the biggest impact on our business but many of us don't even realise. We're also notorious for neglecting it, overworking it and chucking it to the side without a second thought. It's ourselves. The business owners and leaders. Find out what Waz and Nic have to say about this bad habit.
TIB177 Are you doing it? Waz and Nic have been doing it all week!
Waz and Nic reckon you should do it. They've been doing it this week. That's right... posting videos online. Not just any videos though. Videos about your business, your values, your trade. We're running our video challenge in the Tradies In Business Facebook group and it's not too late to participate. Head over to the group and we'll help you get better at video in a safe space!

We love your show... we look forward to your next episodes! Cheers!
Recently discovered this podcast, and it’s definitely a show you want to keep your eye on. Keep up the great work, Warrick & Michaela.
Good job guys. It is nice to find a podcast dedicated to those in the trades. As a paint contractor, I am always looking for ways to improve. I've only listened to three so far, but I like what I am hearing.
Keep up the good work.
