Meet the Owner

Ko Kahuranaki te māunga
Ko Ngaruroro te awa
Ko Takitimu te waka
Ko Ngāti Kahungunu te iwi
Ko Ngati Ngarengare te hapū
Ko Houngarea te marae
Ko Delle tōku ingoa
Writing a blog is new to me, so hang in there for the ride; it may be torturous. But since I'm here, let me tell you a little about my journey to this point.
Let's get the basic stuff out of the way first. I'm a Mum, step-mum, partner, business owner, and employee (just to name a few of my roles in this journey called life).
I was born in Australia, went to primary school on the Gold Coast, attended intermediate and high school in Hawke's Bay, had my first 3 children in Hastings, and now live and work in Levin.
While Australian is my nationality, my ethnicity is Māori and I'm still on a journey to learning exactly what this means for me. It's already taken me more than 30 years to realise that I AM MĀORI ENOUGH no matter what. However, there is still a journey to be had to ensure my Māoritanga continues to grow.
Now, here I am, close to 38 years of age, hapu with my fourth child, and attempting to start a new business because of challenge I saw on TikTok. What the hell am I thinking?
What's the challenge? It's to make $100,000 in 2023. I can't use any income streams that I used last year, and I cannot invest my own money. I started this challenge on January 28th, 2023 with no plan on how to achieve it.
This is typical of me. I make spontaneous decisions and jump into them with full force. Like a typical Aries, the enthusiasm and drive usually takes a dive not long after.
With the birth of my latest creation quickly drawing near, May 6th being the due date, who knows how far into this challenge I'll make it. I have put in place steps to keep me accountable but let's be honest; a true Aries does not care about such things.
Before I sign out, I want to challenge you to do something out of your comfort zone this year. Do something a little crazy and have fun doing it!
