Reducing regrets, hurt and stress in love, life and business!

Ladies with Tradies helps tradie couples with the tools to stop shit hitting the fan and achieve all their goals in love, life and business. Through 1:1 coaching, seminars and workshops, Ladies with Tradies offers no bullshit education, training and support to reduce regrets and stress in business.

Our programs bring all things 'behind the scenes' to the forefront - without the complex jargon and 'businessy' confusion. You’ll learn about cash flow management, structuring your teams, planning, goal setting, growth and so much more. We teach you how to work WITH your Tradie, not bang your head against a wall. Heck, it could potentially save your marriage, but more importantly – your sanity!

You can trust that our team will be honest, upfront and will support you to make the decisions you need to make whilst keeping your best interests at heart.
Ladies with Tradies have loads of fun with their clients. You need to be able to have a laugh, and want to fall in love with your business again – where you are pumped to get up, get it done and have loads of laughs along the way. Business does NOT have to be all serious after all!
We love a challenge and if you want to work with us, you need to be up for one too! There is fun – yes – but you need to push yourself to make it to the top of your game. It will be uncomfortable sometimes – but where there is discomfort – there is always growth.
We will care about you, your welfare, your businesses health and your family as if it were our own. Your business is your baby – you are in safe hands, but at the top of our priority list is YOU. We want YOU to be ok at all times.

Our Founder,
Kate Muldoon

“Let’s grab a cuppa, cut the crap and get stuck in!”
Kate Muldoon Is the Founder and Head Coach at Ladies with Tradies. A tradie’s wife herself, Kate wanted to help other ladies with her proven strategies for a successful working relationship with their tradies. Kate and the team bring all things 'behind the scenes' to the forefront - without the complex jargon and 'businessy' confusion.

Kate was inspired to create Ladies with Tradies to support other tradie couples after a series of tragedies in her own life. The loss of her tradie brother, the loss of a tradie partner through addiction, and loss of both grandfathers at a young age due to illnesses relates to their ‘tradesmen’ lifestyle. Kate was also a palliative care nurse and intimately witnessed the regrets of the dying. Kate’s mission is to help tradie couples stop shit hitting the fan and reduce regrets and stress in love, life and business.

Kate’s no bullshit approach of good communication and being brutally honest inspires people to believe in and value themselves for the amazing people they are. What you see is what you get with Kate. Her down to earth nature stems from her rural upbringing and she strives to make services such as coaching and business support available to all tradie couples, no matter where they’re based.

When Kate becomes part of your team, she embeds herself into your way of life. She will advocate, promote and understand your business as if it were her own.  You can rely on Kate to deliver for you and your team.

Chane Vieira
'No man should be a slave to his business, and feel the need to make up for lost time when life catches up with them'

Chane is our dynamic, straight shooting, get shit done coach, based in NZ - I know right - so cool.

She comes from a family of trades entrepreneurs where her dad was a mechanic. She grew up with the highs and lows of a mechanic business... dad always doing his best to provide meaning that her mum played full time mum and dad. Just like many of us can relate to - even weekends her dad's business occupied him - which I am sure breaks his heart even now.

Here's why Chane loves LWT and all we stand for:

No child should wish for more quality time with mum/dad
No married woman should need to play both roles
No man should be a slave to his business, and feel the need to make up for lost time when life catches up with them

Business done right should give families more, not take away live and experiences. My calling and life purpose is empowering business owners from all walks of life live a regret free life in love, life and business"

Chane has an extensive background in marketing and sales, recruitment - and all things business. She has a passion for helping and changing people's lives.

Kate and Chane worked together for some time in the past and this is where they cultivated ideas, grew excited together, and eventually decided to take on the crusade of reducing regrets in the lives of others together.

Melanie McKibbin
Just like you Mel is a business owner now building her second business.

Mel knows what it is like to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders as a business owner.  What it is like to be consumed in the day-to-day operations of the business and feeling like a car aquaplaning at 110 clicks down the Pacific Highway completely out of control.

She knows what it’s like to not only start from the beginning – getting her brand and herself to be known, liked and trusted but also knows the challenges that come with taking on an already established business and inheriting a team and all of the bad habits that come along with it.

She also knows that business doesn’t have to be that hard.  With the right structure and planning (and oh how she loves structure & planning), you really can build that business that gives you the financial and time freedom we all crave for.

Her first 20 years in business was climbing the Corporate ladder absorbing as much knowledge and as many skills that she could take into her own small business.  As much as Corporations can be that naughty C word at times, they do know how to do systems and structure that can easily be adapted so small business.

Mel is extremely passionate, enthusiastic, loyal and will be your number one supporter.  She will call you out on your crap but will also be that friendly ear to vent to when needed.

A wife, mother (of twins – she doesn’t do things in half), coach and business owner, Mel gets shit done – and she will expect the same from you – so strap in and enjoy the ride!

"It was invaluable to be able to listen to other ladies in similar positions, especially when you are stuck in the office by yourself. Staying above the spirit line, DISC and the tools provided to help organise my Tradie have been very helpful and I hope to be able to implement it all over time"
