    Hi Workawayers

    Update August 2019

    Hi WW'ers past present and future
    IJust got back from italy/Thailand and Indonesia.
    Max is in shock that Bossy pants has come home.
    Anyway That's Mr. Bossy-pants BTW.
    I need help. I hate working alone.
    And it's kind of not really but kind of enjoyable work.
    The after workaway experience is however very good.
    Read below:


    Max and I live in a beautiful part of North Auckland called Algies Bay. It has everything an NZ beach has to offer. Max works as a trained Dramatherapist and I am enjoy life as a Professional Motivator (sounds better than Coach/Manager). We have 2 amazing children who are living and working independently and we have 2 dogs living with us. I'm pretty positive, artsy and underwater sporty and Max is my sunbeam -she loves people and theatre and dance and elegant parties
    We own a clothing company. We work together with families in Bali, Thailand,Italy and India to do our best to create clothing and accessories with great energies. Made by happy groups of people who are earth friendly, abundant and ethical. Our clothing is kind of hippy chic and we like to think of our boutiques as a gathering space as well as a selling space. And they truly are!
    We are discerning about with whom we work together. It is important that everyone is comfortable and relaxed with our Workaway working relationships. We all perform well within an atmosphere of good vibes.
    So if that hasn't scared you off.......


    Here is the last half of 2019 Plan for Us and maybe You.

    We plan to create and sell beautiful clothing and accessories made by friends in Bali, Italy,Thailand and India and primarily sourced from natural materials. We will sell our range in boutiques,online and markets in North Island New Zealand.

    For From As of August,we have 3 main workaway openings:

    1a. Available Now
    Help Eilish and I sort clothing. Help with general tidying and domestic landscaping. Help with toting and carting, Help at the markets. Help by being the grocery shopper, cook and cleaner upper.

    1b.From September 15 2019.
    Commercial Interior Design/Tidyperson/Handyperson. This ideal person will be extremely functional,positive, and emanating integrity.We are keen for help as of September 15th. We are renovating 3 shops and fitting out a 4th. Ability to drive safely is a given

    2.From now until forever.
    We will be away for 2 weeks in early September but otherwise looking for help. Website and Social Media Platform Improvement/Service/Upkeep. Our perfect WW can see what we need and is capable of creating/maintaining and handling and helping us get there with minimum of physical input from Max and I. You will be working independently most of the time. But if you like people around you, you can be surrounded by them while you work independently.

    3. From December 2019
    -Retail Assistant Fashionistas and Awesome Sales Assistants who want to share the fashion passion with 35+ women. We have 3 shops right now. Tairua, Matakana,Warkworth. All really nice NZ destinations. We are looking @ new summer shops in Warkworth and Orewa.

    P.S. We offer all of our Workawayers a wage for their services. We also an option of private room accomodation available in our home or our caravan and workawayers can option to either eat from our larder(board) or buy their own food like any other waged worker. I anticipate that the above 3 openings are eventually going to become full time positions. So these openings could suit someone who is looking at staying and working in NZ longer term. However we just want the best fit.

    and if you have any of the below talents, that would be handy too:

    1. Delicious vegetarian/Vegan/Seafood Food Provider.
    2.Occasional Dog Runner
    3. Help with Outdoor Tidying/Cutting/Pruning/Planting/Lawn mowing .)

    If you can do any combination of these openings, obviously there is a lot more scope for a long term relationship with us. Since 2016, we have had 50 Workaway Helpers, 30+Workawayers who lived with us for over a month over a dozen Workawayers who stayed with us for over 3 months.

    Contact Me to discuss where you see you can be part of the Team.
    See You!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We've found that most Workawayers are highly qualified, personable and intelligent. And many of them have left comfortable jobs and lifestyles and are searching for something else. We offer an opportunity for them to experience how we make our way, how we find comfort, and how we share that with others . And we look forward to the perspectives and values and insights that other cultures bring to our humble table. If you read our reviews it will give you an idea of the results of those exchanges.
