Lifestyle Tradie Membership
Is perfect for you
It’s the best business people who are successful, not the best tradies.

Our community is at the heart of the Lifestyle Tradie Membership. Through our in-person member events and masterminds, as well as our active Facebook group, you’ll be supported by like-minded tradies in businesses to celebrate your wins and brainstorm any challenges.
Foundations dictate the strength of everything. A house built on sand will crumble. If your trade business lacks strength in its foundation, you’ll never break the cycle of chaos and have control.
Here’s a sample of what you’ll cover:
Design your future: Understand where you are today and get clear on where you want to be in the future, it’s time to develop a plan for your life and business.
Advance your technology: Improve your business’s profitability and competitiveness with the right technology. Gain more control, efficiency and productivity while freeing up your time.
Streamline your systems: Set team expectations, improve scalability and boost the value of your business by converting the information stored in your head, into business systems.
What’s the point of being a business owner if you’re not making a profit? You may as well go back to working for your old boss. Most trade business owners ‘think’ they understand their finances. Do you know the true figures on how much money you’re making, spending and keeping?
Master the fundamentals: Get your finances in check, from profitable pricing structures to setting financial targets.
Know your numbers: Clarify your true financial data in real time for more certainty and control.
Monitor your metrics: Grow your financial intelligence to measure your financial performance, to help hit business targets.
Throwing money into a scattergun approach to marketing? Are your marketing efforts turning into conversions? What else should you be doing to help your trade business stand out, for long-term survival in this competitive landscape. It starts with having a plan.
Lay the foundations: Learn the core principles of marketing to inform your business’s marketing plan.
Discover online and offline marketing ideas to attract and retain loyal customers.
Exceed customer experience: Increase your average-dollar sales with specific customer experience techniques.
The quality of your leadership and ability to hire and retain a great team will underpin your trade business’s reputation, stability and customer service experience. Get the essentials to build a loyal and effective team to take your business from an ordinary to an extraordinary one.
Strengthen your leadership: Fine-tune your existing leadership skills to guide and inspire those around you.
Leverage for time: Power up your productivity and profit through prioritisation and delegation tactics.
Transform your team: Create a high-performing team with better hiring, onboarding and retention strategies.
When you’re a Lifestyle Tradie member, one of the first things you’ll do is lock in the dates for our live member-only events, Re-Ignite and Re-Unite. These two-day events are designed to be interactive, motivational learning experiences.
At each event, you’ll be wowed by the calibre of presenters. Plus, build a camaraderie with a group of like-minded trade business owners. We have lots of fun together.
Best of all, you’ll come away feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the next four months with new strategies, goals, clarity and focus.
Being a trade business owner can be lonely, especially when you’re trying to resolve a problem, choose a tech platform, navigate an issue within your team, or just have someone to lean on when times are tough or celebrate the wins with.
That’s what our private Facebook group is for.
Every second month, we present live Power Hour online training sessions on topics relevant to you and your trade business. Recent sessions include a masterclass on job management software, debt collection, team structures, P&L — and much more.
In the live presentation, you’ll get the chance to ask your personal questions. And, if you can’t make it, the recordings are posted on the member’s training portal, My Lifestyle Tradie.
Meet up with fellow Lifestyle Tradie members, your trusted circle of peers, for both in-person and virtual masterminds throughout the year.
In small, intimate groups, you’ll keep each other accountable, challenge ways of thinking, brainstorm new ideas and seek support. Masterminds are an invaluable opportunity to share wisdom and collective knowledge.
If you're going to talk the talk, you've got to walk the walk, right? Everything we teach has been perfected through trial-and-error in our own trade business. That's why we know it works.
One of the biggest drawcards of our membership is the Lifestyle Tradie community. Being a tradie boss can be lonely. Connect and hang out with fellow trade business owners for peer support.
We're a husband-and-wife team who've created a strong working relationship across our two business, after struggling to find the balance in the early days of entrepreneurship.
Like you, we own a trade business. You know those challenges you're facing? We totally get it because we've probably faced them, too. Now, we've got the runs on the board on how to resolve them.
From our online training library to live, member-only events and masterminds, you'll have access to trade-specific expertise you can apply in your own business to get big results.
We genuinely want to help you achieve your goals. Andy and Angela, together with the Lifestyle Tradie team, are friendly and down-to-earth. We go the extra mile for our members.
With the help of Andy and Ange, we redesigned our business model and have completely turned our business around. In the past couple of years, our revenue has increased by 279 per cent and we have tripled our profit. Lifestyle Tradie has introduced us to a world of “working smarter, not harder”. We are back to loving our business, customers and newfound freedom. We can’t thank Lifestyle Tradie enough!
In just 3.5 years, we’re on track to turnover $5.5 million. We’ve got 20 technicians and 17 trucks on the road in Adelaide and Perth. We haven’t even begun yet, to be honest. Lifestyle Tradie has helped shift my mindset to be more systems orientated. It’s not about just smashing a job out, it’s about having structure around everything we do. Systems have given us the freedom to focus on the big picture, without spending time on the small nitty-gritty things.
Lifestyle Tradie and Andy and Ange taught us the right technology and systems to implement into our business, which has totally changed our world. We now have control of every job, which has allowed for better visibility on important measurement data like profit/loss and job/quote conversion. Now, we’re able to go on holidays knowing the business can continue to operate without us. We’re not working around the clock like we used to.
