Hi there, I’m Helen. My husband Gerard and I are the proud owners of Living Business.
Taking a holistic approach to helping people in business means we look beyond the obvious to find and share vital insights into what’s working and wha
t isn’t. The biggest thrill for us is seeing business owners gain a whole new perspective on their business by getting better access to their financials and better understanding.
We started our first business 10 years ago, so we know what it’s like learning everything at once, and being everyone at once. The good news is, having things turn out well generally doesn’t happen by accident – you massively improve your chances with a strong support team (that includes people like us of course!) and putting robust systems in place.
Gerard and I came to Tauranga from Wellington in April 2014, after making a conscious decision to move to a better climate and change our lifestyle to be more outdoors orientated. We ran a very successful residential property management business in Johnsonville, as part of the Quinovic brand, for over 8 years.
We had the fastest referral growth in the franchise group over several years, and the 2nd highest customer satisfaction rating. We’re extremely proud that we gained such a high ranking in customer satisfaction because that means we were doing something right (well actually rather a lot right!)
Since selling that business and relocating to Tauranga we now own Living Business as well as a Fifo Capital franchise. Although both Gerard and I are owners of Living Business, I am the key contact and sole
These days in business we’re often asked – what’s our why? Ours is quite simple and it is based on the Ripple Effect philosophy; a philosophy based around when you treat others with respect and integrity, this will then have a positive effect in the wider community. Just one good gesture can make the world of difference.
