Have you noticed how everything old seems to be new again? 

Well, perhaps not hypercolour undies but we’ve certainly seen some things from ‘the good old days’ come back in fashion.

Unlike hypercolour and big hair, there ARE some cool things businesses used to do that STILL work!

Waz and Michaela run through some simple, cheap and often obvious strategies that need to be made cool again… besides, they’ll help you improve your business and make more money!

This episode is support by Bridge App for Tradies

Tradies In Business

Ft. Nicole And Warrick

Whether you’re a plumber, electrician, builder, motor mechanic, landscaper, tiler, glazier, painter, carpenter, concretor or any of the myriad of trades and contractors that keep the world running, this podcast has been produced with you in mind. Your hosts, Warrick ‘Waz’ Bidwell and Nicole ‘Nic’ 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 and their families! Nic and Waz 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, finance, 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!
