the sisters who’re doing it

Over the years there have been a number of sisters perform well in New Zealand’s business environment. One of the most high-profile teams was Sarah Gibbs and Catherine de Groot, who together built up the Trilogy brand of natural skin care before selling the company in 2010. In May this year NZBusiness ran a story on Waikato sisters Paula and Amy Sutton and their successful artwork business AMPA Designs. But without doubt, one of the strongest business partnerships involving sisters in recent times is Chloe and Florence Van Dyke – our cover story this month, and an inspiration to sibling business owners everywhere.

answering the call of crypto

Most people are familiar with the somewhat crazy and controversial world of cryptocurrencies – digital currencies that can be quickly and securely traded online independent from traditional banks. Bitcoin is the most recognised brand. Cryptocurrencies are here to stay and lawmakers worldwide have been scrambling to legislate for them. At the time of writing the US government was holding hearings on Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra – seen as another step forward to mainstreaming the technology and establishing a robust global regulatory framework for the wider crypto market.

Easy Crypto aims to “make it safe and easy for anyone to get into the growing cryptocurrency…

Mike and Chantel Priddy’s Greenleaf Organics brand is fast finding favour amongst stockists nationwide, including selected New World and PAK’nSAVE supermarkets, and the couple have major plans for expansion. This story has its genesis almost 20 years ago when Mike, a Kiwi, and Chantel, an Aussie, met while working at a pub in the inner West Sydney suburb of Balmain. Although they’d both had varied careers, they also had a common interest in health, wellbeing and fitness. But their passion for organics came to a head after their son Rocco developed a number of allergies or intolerances to a range of, mostly non-organic, food and beverages. Mike remembers…
