International World Indigenous Day

International World Indigenous Day is a day that we can reflect on the native cultures, people and communities that help shape the societies we live in, wherever we are on earth.

Being a white, British immigrant, my knowledge of Indigenous culture and history is limited to the (likely very inaccurate) ‘propaganda’ we’re taught at school, so to help us gain a better understanding of how it really is, I’ve invited friend and colleague Ben Stainer back on the show.

As a proud member of the Australian Aboriginal community, Ben’s story is not only impressive, it’s hugely inspiring. Ben built and sold a very successful plumbing and electrical company a number of years ago, which at it’s peak had 65 staff and 45 trucks on the road.

Since selling up his business, Ben’s been working with indigenous communities as a mentor and leadership figure. It was great to hear about some of the initiatives that he has been working on, some of which we’ll be hearing more about in future episodes.

I absolutely loved recording this podcast. Ben talked about his family history, the decision he chose to become a business man, social issues in indigenous communities, and a whole bunch of other interesting stuff that will keep your earbuds planted firmly in your ears.

A big thanks to my mate Ben for sharing this awesome story with us.


Also, I had Ben on the show earlier in the year to record a series we named ‘Big Business’. It was the most popular series we had for months. Go back and check them out, he’s a world of knowledge with a crazy story and super down to earth.

Series Name: Big Business

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
