About Annette

Hi there. My purpose in life is to help trade business owners to grow a successful business. The purpose of this podcast is to share interviews with business experts that we believe do know what they're talking about, to help our listeners grow their business and achieve more than they ever thought possible. So who am I to want to give help to trade business owners about business? Good question! I’m married to a tradie, addicted to marketing and fascinated by what makes a successful business, well successful. Marketing is certainly on top of the list, but there are other areas of the business to get right - which is why this Tradie Success episodes delve into all areas of running and growing a trade business. In terms of my experience - I have marketing quals, 30+ years marketing experience, and have helped hundreds of small businesses (a lot of them tradies) achieve better results through their marketing.
