As any of you know who have ever held events they rarely go off without a hitch! One of the things I personally love about this community is how I so strongly feel the support of all of you.
Everybody knows that we are in a global trash crisis- but business owners like Tasha Gray are here to help us do something about it!
Tasha runs GoAgain, a business that helps New Zealanders make low waste lifestyle changes with their range of no-plastic products. She is a yogi, traveller, beach lover and entrepreneur, so a low waste business was an obvious path.
She lives in surf-crazy Piha with her partner and two lively teenagers, and she is on a mission to make New Zealand a better place for future generations- one bamboo cutlery set at a time.
This amazing day held at Five Knots Mission Bay was such a special time connecting with everyone and learning about digital marketing.
Thank you our panelists:
Cathy Pope (Cathy Pope Jewellery)
Fee Kirkpatrick (Shine On)
Rochelle Sheldon (Joyable)
Who shared some incredible tips on how they've used Facebook and Instagram to grow their businesses.
And of course a big thank you to our partners Facebook for making these nationwide events possible!

She Owns It Success Stories
Every month we interview an amazing lady in our community, and this month I want you to meet the amazing Debbie Mills Robertson from Task Diva.
Debbie is a virtual assistant that puts life into all the creative tasks you want in your business, but don't have time to do yourself!
For her, this was the logical biz model- previously she owned 2 other businesses, so she's had 11 years to learn exactly what busy women need.
She lives in Christchurch with her daughter, silver-fox husband, cat and dog, and I am SO excited for you to hear her story!
We're excited to announce the relaunch of the Facebook Community Boost powered by She Owns It Program!
