Travelling the world for free is a reality for Aussie tradies who can now swap their skills for the holiday of a lifetime.
Overworked, stressed and struggling, the emotionally suppressive culture of the construction industry put tradesman Adam Valastro on a dark path.
“[I was] an angry young man,” the business owner tells SmartCompany.
“I wasn’t driven. There really wasn’t loyalty or fun. It was basically just a paycheck at the end of the week,” he says.
In a nutshell, Travelling Tradies pair qualified tradies up with reputable businesses around the world to create memorable experiences. Tradesmen fix a tap, to get a bed for the night+
Adam Valastro showed up to the MYOB Pitch night in Hawthorn and showed the room his passion for both his craft and passion for travel. It was pretty instant that his energy was recognised and Travelling Tradies ended up being one of the winners that night.
Claire Goldsworthy caught up with Adam to do a deep dive on his mission & vision.
