Episode 7: Part 1: Verity Hare from TradieWives

This week Adrian is joined by the lovely Verity Hare the founder of Australia’s biggest community of wives and partners of tradies- ‘TradieWives’! Verity first created the TradieWives Facebook community when she first started working full time in her husband’s structural landscaping business and noticed how little trade-specific information was available to help her figure things out. She started the group shortly after with the hopes of getting 20 members to bounce ideas off, and has since seen it grow to over 10,000 members.

In episode one of this two part series, we discuss how Verity first came up with the idea for TradieWives and how the group has grown beyond what she could have ever imagined.

For our female listeners, you can join the TradieWives community by heading to https://www.facebook.com/groups/TradieWives and clicking ‘join’. You can also keep up with the TradieWives team on their social media pages below.

Adrian Fadini

After building his own plumbing business, Plumber To The Rescue, from the ground up, Adrian worked hard to make it one of Sydney's most reputable trade businesses.

He soon realised that a key ingredient to success was regular training. Adrian developed a passion for training and trained his team weekly always looking for ways to fine-tune his training.

After selling his business to his largest competitor in 2012 Adrian entered into 2-year contract, as a condition of sale, where Adrian was responsible for bringing in account clients such as strata companies, chains of pubs and clubs and other businesses that required ongoing plumbing and electrical services.

Once this contract period ended Adrian became a full-time business coach and sales training expert, he wanted to make sure the mistakes he learned from, along with his many hours of research, networking and testing could be turned into a teachable set of workshops to help others.

Adrian understands the day to day struggles of running your own small business. He knows how to overcome them, and how to build a successful, profitable business.

Using his experience in the trades industry, combined with the skills in training and coaching that he has honed over many years, Adrian can add significant value to your small-medium business.
