HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUTTERS!
Take a look at what we have accomplished over the last two years!
It's true, we've just turned two!
In the two short years TradeMutt have been operating, we as a community have taken huge strides in helping to reduce the rate of male suicide as well as raise awareness around men's mental health and helping to start countless and potentially life saving conversations.
Through poorly groomed moustaches and diva outbursts - P.S Dan never did get that muffin - you lot of deadset legends have been right there, riding this insane wave with us.
We are incredibly proud of the work we have all mucked in to do together and look forward to seeing how we grow and evolve in the future.
Here is a little montage of the fun we have had over the last 2 years.

TradeMutt Turns 2?
“That’ll save us”
This was the line that Ed or I would say to each other during the first year of business whenever our phones would make the cash register sound letting us know that we’d made a sale.
It was always said with a cheeky grin and usually with an eye roll and was always the perfect way to break any tension that we may have been feeling, for any number of reasons in the Start-Up journey.
That mantra was simply a light-hearted quip, but behind the line was a much deeper concern that we both felt; we may fail as a business. It was not something that we explicitly said to one another, but we both knew the underlying meaning.
Fear of failure is a valid concern and one that everyone has felt before. But it’s an important feeling to embrace because, without that hint of self-doubt, you will quickly become complacent. Complacency is not something that presents itself until you’re left standing in the ashes of what could have been a great business.
Fear of failure is just one of the many challenges that we’ve faced.
On March 16th, 2020, TradeMutt turns 2 years old.
