3. Tradies Business Show

With many tradies working long hours and having limited time for new learning (and also often spending a lot of time traveling to and from jobs) this podcast is a great way to keep up to date and informed. It covers topics such as marketing, sales, finance, systems and procedures, customer service, business planning, branding and more.
