This article shares 5 business resources for tradies that will help you take your businesses to the next level.

According to 2013 stats, there are over 950,000 tradies in Australia. That’s 950,000 carpenters, bricklayers, electricians, plumbers, and other tradespeople. No wonder the role of the tradie is so synonymous with Australian culture!

Usually, a tradie will start their life as an apprentice and then will go on to work for a company or start their own business. Rarely do tradies that start their own business have any formal business education.

The typical tradie straight from school learns nothing about business at TAFE, and ends up learning the same mistakes and contempt for customers from their boss who learnt it from theirs. ~ Andrew Pride, business coach to tradies
