“I moved to NZ in 2003 to advance my career as a pastry chef. I worked at James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor till 2006 before moving to Rotorua to join the Millennium Group. Soon realising that the cheffing career has reached its cap. I then purchased my first business because I wanted to be my own boss. However, I quickly switched to the Courier business, as the earlier was not proving as profitable as I had expected.”
