My passion for the construction industry started at a young age. Initially with my own property investing and developing, and then owning my own construction business.
Having had the role of estimator, quality control officer, bookkeeper, accountant, marketing expert and sales person (breath), I experienced the same frustrations that every other builder that I have mentored, and spoken to also faces.
This led me to my vision which is to provide a high value, affordable program for builders – to assist them to create their own foundations for their business all in the one place. Including pricing, sales and sales psychology, budgets, processes and procedures – And much more.
In my own business I found that it was extremely difficult to find this information and it definitely wasn’t in the one place.
My curiosity to find a better way within our business started with a long search and many phone conversations with my friends who were builders. I would ask things like, “How much are you charging per square at the moment” and, “I am so frustrated! I’ve just spent hours and hours on a proposal and they’ve used my specifications to get another builder to quote!” were the general dialogue of such conversations.
After a long and frustrating search, eventually I found my first business mentor who put us on the right track.
My affiliation with the industry didn’t stop there. I was lucky enough to become a strategic business coach specialising in builders and trades and I continued along my journey – one in which I’m extremely passionate about.
WHO IS CANDICE?
With a background as a pilot, and a once medical school attendee, Candice discovered her passions lay elsewhere. This began her pursuit of assisting others in all areas marketing, lead generation and personal development.
She discovered that her passion for not only her own business but the businesses of others led her to develop her own coaching business specialising in coaching coaches.
Having coached well over 5000 hours in her own coaching business, Candice forms the other side of the Academy partnership by guiding our clients through funnels and ways to generate a more consistent lead base rather than the “feast or famine” method as what the construction industry is well renowned for.
Together Tamika and Candice believe that they can change the industry. To create an enjoyable and sustainable business across all facets of not only business, but their clients lives.

Small Fish Business Coaching is business coaching for tradies and builders. We’re called Small Fish because we are a small fish and we work with small fishes too – small fishes that want to grow a bit bigger and stronger.
It’s a specific kind of business coaching – it’s for trades businesses that are wanting to put the systems and structure in place to grow their businesses properly. You’ll grow from a small and unstructured business to a larger and much more structured and systematic one. How much larger is up to you – you’ll be too big a fish for us at some point.
The structure is about building a business where you (the tradie and the wife – the management team) can grow your business without the two of you just having to take on more work yourselves. It’s about hiring people and giving them the systems so they can do their jobs well, without needing supervision and help from you all the time.
The ultimate goal is a beautiful business that does great work (and keeps your customers happy), where happy and engaged team members are doing their jobs well, productively and without much of you, where the leaders are enjoying some work-life balance and running the business, not stuck in the guts of it doing everything.
If you work with us, you’ll write a strategy for your trade business – you’ll decide what you want it to become and make this plan for how to get there. And we’ll help you implement your plan.
The plan will be based around the structure I’m about to describe:
What to do:
Watch the videos in the Tradies Wives Facebook Group
Download our ‘Know Your Numbers Workbook’ – and learn the numbers you should be tracking in your business.
Attend a Tools Down Workshop (tickets are doubles, so 1 ticket covers both of you, they are on a weekend so you can get away from work and enjoy some time working ON your business)
Book a 10-minute chat with me (Jon) to start the process of deciding if coaching with Small Fish is the right thing for you right now.

Turn Your Profit into Cash, Destroy Debt, Invest for Your Future. That’s what Profit First can do for you.
Sounds gimmicky? It’s not, it’s simply the easy to remember steps we follow at Amazing Tradies as Profit First Professionals.
In fact, I liked the Profit First system so much I took the next step and became a Profit First Master. Even though I have been a business coach since 2005, and put in many great cash and profit strategies in business, I fell in love with the thinking and practical ways of Profit First.
No more not understanding what happens with financials. It’s right there in front of you. Look at your phone and know what’s going on.
We want You to Build a business that creates a wonderful life and future for you, your family and your team. And we want you to teach your kids so that they build a great future for themselves.
And it’s not all about money. We want to make sure you have FUN along the way, while you do SMART Work, not HARD work.
I’ve owned quite a few businesses and I’m still involved in a few. I’ve sat up at night juggling bills, been kept up at night wondering how to pay them, and had the phone calls when bills were overdue. It’s not pleasant. I’ve looked at the financials from my multi million dollar business, looked at the Profit, and gone “Where the $%^& the cash? Not in my pocket!”
I don’t want you to have that stress. Profit First fixes that.
And now I run every business so that every transaction puts cash PROFIT into a bank account FOR ME and the other shareholders. That’s what we are here to help you do.
So, I am on a mission to get your business working for you, as a vehicle to deliver you the life you desire. I am on a mission for you to look to the future with hope and the now with joy.
I want you to drive the car you want, have the house you want, the investments you want. I want you to have time with your kids, with your partner, and go on holidays together.
I don’t want you to have a good business, or a great business, I want you to have an Amazing business, that’s why we are Amazing Tradies.
We have a way of helping to suit you. Be it a Profit First Implementation Program, Our ongoing Massive Results Club, our Owners’ Boardroom, or Private Clients Executive Coaching. Or you can attend our SMART Days and Retreats.
It’s all pretty simple – just give me a call.

Hey Tony here, founder of Profitable Tradie.
We specialise in turning great Plumbers, Electricians and other Tradies into great business owners by improving their systems & structure, improving profit and getting their time under control.
You see, the sad truth is that 87% of Trades Business owners don’t make a business profit. Yep 87%! They’re taking home somewhere around $70,000 to $100,000 a year which is about the same as they could get working on the tools for someone else – but without the headaches!
It’s a far cry from the dreams that lured them into starting their own business in the first place (something along the lines of “being my own boss, earning more money, driving a flash car and taking more time off!!”)
Over the past 11 years we’ve coached over 1354 Plumbing, Electrical and Trade Businesses to turn their companies into systemised and profitable machines.
We’ve found the 3 biggest frustrations of NZ & AUS Plumbers & Electricians is hiring GOOD staff, fighting the constant invoicing and paperwork headaches and being able to make a decent profit and keep the cash rolling in.
We’ve learnt the best systems and tools to overcome these headaches and now I want to share them with you.

I clearly remember the tough times and getting to a point in my business where I felt like I was asking myself, “What the heck am I doing wrong”. Only to find that the common solution, was just to add more people, which only increased my costs and if I did that, I too, would succeed.
I could sense this advice wasn’t correct!
I was drowning in never-ending priorities and constantly putting out fires. I felt anxious and overwhelmed because I didn’t know how to fix the problem.
I was signing up any client that wanted to give me money, I was scared to say NO! I wanted the security of knowing where the money was coming from.
I became so fixated on the money that I forgot about the client’s needs, became lazy with my paperwork & compliance…..bad move!
It was draining my energy, focus, bank account & my attention.
I lost sight of why we had even started our business & I went from absolutely loving what we were building to questioning absolutely everything! I even though about closing our business and going to work for someone else
Until I realized I needed to focus my attention on 6 specific frameworks.
So if you are ready to put all of the stress, overwhelm and insecurities behind you and you are ready to secure and grow a Building Business that will fuel your lifestyle contact Designher Builder to get the simple step-by-step processes to creating and securing a clear path to Custom Home Building Success.
