TradieWives is an active collaboration platform designed to support the wives and partners of Tradies in the daily management of their business activities. We connect women in the same role for advice, support and networking. TradieWives also connects women in these roles with businesses that support trades with the running and management of the business through a facebook group and online directories. As a tradie wife myself, the idea was born from leaving my full time job to work in the business with my husband. I felt extremely out of my depth and wanted to connect with other women in the same boat. As it turns out there were many other women feeling just like me and we now have close to 9000 TradieWives in our highly engaged Facebook group, growing rapidly every day.
