Warrick Bidwell and Nicole Cox (or Waz and Nic) have been working with trade business owners for more than 10 years… supporting them to implement the necessary steps to get ‘off the tools’ and into true business ownership.
More importantly, Waz and Nic both come from trade backgrounds themselves so they have real-world experience in the frustrations, challenges, opportunities and stuff-ups that are the reality of what life is like for #tradiesinbusiness!

LISTEN TO THE TIB PODCAST
With both of us being born into trade families we have ‘tradie blood’ running in our veins!
We’re very familiar with the gut-busting, money stress, relationship strain and general frustration that can be part of owning and running a trade business. Having worked with tradies in business for the past bunch of years, we’re also acutely aware of the significant opportunity for trade business owners if they get the fundamentals in place.
We are both driven to break some of the negative cycles within our industries and help you, a Tradie In Business, get off the tools and into true business ownership. Business that gives you flexibility, financial stability, family time, fun, future wealth… all the good f’s!

What tradies are saying
Warrick and I got together a couple years years ago to formulate a plan to take my business from a self employed job to a proper trade business. That was 2015 and I haven’t been on the tools since!
I’ve been following the [Tradies In Business] podcast for a couple of years and received some great insights. I decided to contact Waz and begin working 1-1 with him and so far it has been awesome. Heaps of great business fundamental work combined with custom ideas and systems to implement. I’m excited to see where we will be in the coming months!
Nicole is the most phenomenal mentor. Her knowledge, skills, care, kindness and intense understanding of the building industry blows my mind. I couldn’t do life without her. If you want honesty, reliability and a person who will go to bat for you, Nicole is your woman!
So far there has been info of basically all the stuff that I have needed and it has really helped in a massive way. For things I couldn’t found out I’ve posted and it’s been a really helpful, quick response. Thanks for all the things you guys done, keep it up.
My husband Trent and I have been enjoying being part of the facebook page that you and Nicole have started. I posted back in November about weather everyone thought sending something out to our customer about maintenance for when there tools are in little use over Christmas break was a good idea. We sent out emails,changed our radio ad and posted on facebook and we have come back to so much work. Last January we really struggled through the month. This year is a complete turn around. So thanks to your lovely tradies on your pages we got the courage to try our ideas.
