Couple of tradie thoughts

It’s been a really great experience. The amount of work that I’ve gotten through goodwork is amazing. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t believe it.

The thing I like about this app is its grass roots approach to finding good tradies for projects and, conversely, for finding work. The people who have created and run this app have an alternative and more friendly vision compared to the more commercial agency organisations that use hard sell tactics to sign tradies up. This app seems to be more respectful of industry professionals and has the potential to change, for the better, the “gig” nature of the industry.
