Our guest Kelly Exeter

Round and round and round it goes, where it stops, nobody knows!

For many of us, this is an apt description of our lives. Busily racing from this appointment to that customer to another meeting before rushing home to be late for dinner (again) and then hastily kissing the kids (and maybe the better half) goodnight, only to repeat the whole process the next day. And the next. And the next.

With all the talk of productivity, effectiveness and getting sh*t done you’d be forgiven for thinking the answer to your problems was more of the same. Learning how to fit more in.

Well, it seems our guest on today’s episode has come up with a better way.  

Kelly Exeter has ‘been there done that’ when it comes to being busy. So much so that she actually had a pretty serious breakdown a few years back when it all became too much.  We chat to Kelly about her second book, Practical Perfection, which launched today and how Kelly’s model could just be the secret to you leading a happier, more balanced and enjoyable life.

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!
