Each day starts with ensuring I have all the right tools to complete the customer meetings, prospect meetings and phone calls on my to do list. I’ll be travelling around Canterbury, enjoying the beautiful southern scenery and visiting customers on site to broaden my knowledge and appreciation for their business.
My passion for wanting to change the lives of New Zealand business owners, and the fact that my core beliefs are so closely aligned with RightWay's.
I’d describe this as planned growth advice with a supportive ear. My customer operated a hospitality franchise operation and were on a growth plan to open more sites within a short timeframe. My advice was to open, establish, and settle all the staff in each location, before engaging the next site and starting the process again. They took this on board and as each new site opened, I supported them with all their contractors and professional relationships, and was a sounding board throughout. I took a personal interest in the sites chosen, their shift managers and key staff. To this day I still have a strong relationship with both Directors and their families.
Our family is heavily addicted to Suits, which we watch religiously every week. Totally in love with Harvey and Lewis and so wish I was Donna! Just finished watching The Handmaid's Tale and was shockingly addicted to it ... is that a worry or what?
My hubby, who is a qualified watchmaker/asbestos auditor/meth tester – about to embark on a beekeeping career. Sara, my youngest daughter, is at Uni studying linguistics and making the most of home life and parents covering her costs. And.... to help with our mental health we have three Schnoodles: Gypsy, Betty and Lucy. We are all animal lovers and it’s fair to say these pooches are more human than dog.
My Dad always said if you are paying GST you are making money. My parents were always self-employed, and my childhood was spent learning about business. This piece of advice has stuck with me since childhood.
