Debt and why I stumbled upon a life changing opportunity

by Hamera Maika Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Finance, Self Improvement
Upon graduating, which was a cool experience, I had accumulated a $60,000 loan.  That equated to $15,000 a year for my studies.  The average tertiary student can look forward to a debt of $21,000 as stated in the NZ Herald.  However, I would guess that average would be much higher for University graduates of tertiary education. After successfully completing my Physical Education degree, I had no specific job opportunities to transition into forcing me to sign up for government assistance before I found ...

Lessons on unity, my ‘calling’ and a lifestyle online.   

by Hamera Maika Home Based Business, News and Society, Self Improvement, Home and Family
Whakarongo! Whakarongo! Ki te tangi a te manu nei! Tui, tui, tuituia! Listen! Listen! To the cry of the bird calling! Unite, unite, be one! Above is an incantation cited by orators of the Maori people of New Zealand to unite visitors and hosts under the banner of unity.  Whatever the demographics maybe, and depending on the issue at hand unity will be required to fulfil the purpose of the gathering. What lessons can I learn from my elders? With this in mind the ...

Grit, determination and ‘getting it done’.

“I hurt my leg mum”  I said as we walked towards the Pinnacles mountain top.  We were going to camp near the summit of the mountain that day as the walk took about 4-5 hours. “Keep going son we’ve only just started”  I kept walking for the next hour or so but soon stopped as my foot blew up and I could barely move it. My mother was a big lady with an even bigger drive.  We were about 2 hours away from the ...

by Hamera Maika Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Finance, Self Improvement
In the last five years I have been open to and searching for a way that I could start helping people create their greatest lives through digital technology.

Emancipation through the digital economy

by Hamera Maika News and Society, Self Improvement, Reference and Education
“Go to school, get into University, get a great job and help your people”.  These are the sentiments of many caring parents to their children and it was certainly like that for me and my siblings.  Being brought up in our Māori (Indigenous peoples of New Zealand) values there was extra emphasis placed on helping your people.  Māori like many other indigenous populations of the world have the highest statistics for poor health, domestic violence, incarceration rates and male teen suicide ...

Indigenous Teachings on Unity and Purpose

by Hamera Maika News and Society, Reference and Education
I was raised in a small rural community called Harataunga/Kennedy’s Bay in the Coromandel region of New Zealand.  My siblings and I were nurtured in our traditional Māori (Indigenous peoples of New Zealand) values, language, practices and customs. As I transition in to my online journey I have pondered much on our most sacred practice of mourning the deceased or tangihanga and how its fundamental principles promote sound business practice.  For Māori in New Zealand each tribe and sub-tribe have a meeting ...
