What an awesome night mixing business with laughter! We heard from guest speakers Tofiga Fepuleai from former group “Laughing with the Samoans”, Ray Allen co-owner of the Food Company and Wintec.
The key messages that were shared and explored were:
- The importance of a great work ethic and to not give up when the going gets tough.
- Find your purpose, passion and define your vision.
- Surround yourself with the right people and advisors BUT make sure you understand what work they are doing for you.
- Great cultural considerations were discussed such as the importance of family, faith and balancing your own finances with cultural obligations
The Food Company’s presentation was excellent. Ray showcased three books that helped him shaped the business person he is today. ‘Rich Man, Poor Man’, ‘The E Myth’ and ‘The Millionaire Next Door’. He encouraged our members to read and educate themselves before they enter into business.
