MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Ryan Jenkins:Hi I believe I could be a red hot favourite for tradie of the
year.I’m a 25 year old carpenter that is foreman of a small building company called get building services from the Sutherland shire. I’m a workaholic I love being a Chippy, it’s all I ever wanted to be. I work 5 days a week with my company and love smashing out my own weekend jobs for myself.This year has been a pretty crazy year with the start of a massive job that was a huge 3 story mansion rebuild. The job is the biggest I have ever been apart of let alone run. The job also brought along the client from hell that basically was any tradies nightmare. She was constantly arguing, changing things and saying it was our fault, telling us how to do our job and accusing us of lying. After weeks and weeks of being at this job dealing with this client twice a day every day my stress levels went through the roof and I wound up in hospital with headaches, heart pulpitations and high blood pressure.While I was in hospital they found a abnormality in my brain and kept me in hospital for 3 weeks and performed brain surgery. After a few weeks of recovery I was eager to get back to the job site after my boss was desperate to get me back. After hospital was tough I would work 8 hours and get home and sleep all arvo for a good few weeks, but I had to be at work I was going stir crazy at home.6 months on and this job is finally coming to the end and it feels epic, not just because the final product is great but effort and the hurdles I and my team went to to finish it brings great satisfaction.
MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Ben Romer:I work my ass off I start at 5am every day and work until about 5-7
sometimes later 6-7 days a week there is just no stopping I'm a plant mechanic for a crane company there is just no stopping I'm constantly being called to breakdown in the middle of the night/early morning my trade is my life.
MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Joey LewisHi, my name is Joey Lewis, I’m 26yrs old, working in the mining Industry
and I think I’m tradie of the year because despite only having six fingers I’ve just finished my second trade Cert III in Mechanical Fitting having previously also finished Cert III in Fabrication (boilermaking) despite people always saying I would struggle with anything technical I have endeavoured all my life to prove people wrong, also looking to study a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering through CQ uni, I believe being tradie of the year is someone that strives to achieve and work their through problems, overcoming difficulties
MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Daniel Onus:Straight out of school and I went straight into the carpentry trade, 1st
year of the apprenticeship is nearly done so I’m only still new in the working environment but have picked up a lot of skills and developed a much better understanding revolved around certain aspects of the trade. I’ve clocked some hours up on the broom so I guess you could say that’s my specialty and I’m looking forward to gain more experience and knowledge in years to come. Cheers
MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Sid Leathem:I work hard for my family we live off a single income so things are

MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Daniel White:Nominated by Drew Robson - Every builder needs a boiley! Whitey has

His superior service, excellent workmanship and hard work ethic have earn\\'t him many repeat clients and his name spreading throughout the countryside as a dependable bloke. He could weld flower petals to butterfly wings if they made the right gas! The only thing he cannot weld is the crack of dawn and a broken heart.

His going into his 4th year in January 2018 and will eventually be applying for a builders license. He works 6 days a week and on the weekend his helping his sister with her house renovations.

MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Joshua Robinson:I am your farrier....I drive backroads every day looking for you and
your horses. I argue with the GPS lady about which turns to make, how far to drive, where to go next. I touch hundreds of horses and I love them. This farrier thing is much more than my job, it's my life. I do more than nail shoes on your horses feet or trim away excess hoof. I train them, help them be confident, assure them life will be okay. I am the guy who is the first line against poor performance or unsoundness. I work hard to make your horse and you comfortable, sound, and happy. I pat your dogs, play with your kids, compliment your barn. I've helped you catch horses, worm them, give them shots and not once did I charge your for these little extras. I'm happy to help. My hands are scarred and rough, yet gentle and kind. Sometimes I bleed for you. My knees are pocked with hundreds of tiny nail holes and yet you never know I hurt or I'm sore and stiff and tired. I would keep working under any conditions because this is more than my job or my work, it's who I am. I see happy, well cared for horses with bright sunny stalls and I see horses mired in muck and urine. I work with healthy, happy horses and horses who have given every ounce of their heart and soul for your pleasure. Sadly I also see horses that, through ignorance or neglect, are misused, abused and unhappy. Some days I have to bite my tongue and some days I speak my mind about how you treat your horses. I am your farrier. I've watched your kids grow, I've seen your life bloom. I've been there when tragedy struck and when you experienced the happiness I wish for you always. A warm or cool dry place with level ground is all I ask for most of the time. For your horses to stand quietly and to be paid on time. When you think of me, think of the long hours, the hot days, the rain and wind, think of the good things I've done for you and your horse. Think of me as a professional. Think of me as a caring, sincere person who truly wants the best for you and your horse. You've never paid me for the nails I drive or the steel I shape, you pay me for the knowledge I have. I thirst for that knowledge and I hunger to apply that knowledge. I am proud of what I do and my vow to you is this, I will try hard to be better tomorrow than I was today. I will first, do no harm and most of all, I am your farrier.
MIBT Tradie of the Year Entry | Chantelle Callard:I have been a wall & floor tiler for over 10 years! Just over a
year and a half ago, I started my own business and have been absolutely booked solid since then.
