Where does natural selection stop and science take over? The question how would we feel if our sole purpose in life had already been predefined before we were even born and we had no ability to or support to become our own personal best or make our own choices in life in matters so important as our personal health and wellbeing. That would be an awful situation to be in and whilst I recognise parents desire to do everything they can to save a child, equally as a parent, isn’t your responsibility to support all your children to be everything they can be individually?
Do you think that gender still plays a role in slowing down a woman’s career?
I believe you are only restricted by your own beliefs of what is possible and they reality you choose to live in.
What achievement are you most proud of in your life so far?
Creating businesses that have brought a collection of people together and giving them opportunities to learn and grow and achieve their dreams.
What is at the top of your bucket list?
If I found out I was going to die tomorrow, my greatest wish would be to know my business would continue without me and that my business partners would be looked after and that they were all empowered to achieve everything and anything they wanted to.
What’s the best advice you’ve heard this month?
Change the people or change the people. So true in business where negative attitudes are restricting you from moving forward and achieving your goals.
What was the last the last thing that really boiled your blood?
Opening New Zealand to foreign residents to buy our assets and property but who have no interest in contributing to NZ or our society or the improvement of our country and the people who make us unique.
How do you deal with a bad day?
A long run, wine, and then quality time with my husband.
