We will soon be nestled within Taupo
Exciting News! We are on the move and will be relocating to Taupo hopefully by the end of the month.
Taupo has always been on the agenda for me personally, for many years. Timing has been off until recently and as my daughter, Olivia is about to start her first full year at primary school, there isn't truly a better time to follow my heart and go for it.
It is also an incredible atmosphere for us to grow within a strong tourism industry - which is a perfect alignment for us. I'm actually really excited about this move. It's been a massive dream of mine for years and it's where I have wanted to expand my business for a long time - with development of marketing and event services.
I've really enjoyed what we have created here in Cambridge over the last 5 years of running Black Fox Creative, including Alfresco Bites and Bloom Collective. I've certainly made some beautiful connections here in the last 8 years.
If you are reading this, I want to thank you for your on-going projects or support, encouragement and inspiration to push through all the trials and tribulations of running a business. I've had a lot of fun working on some really AMAZING creative design jobs as well as the community events!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR CLIENTS AND YOUR EVENTS?
In terms of moving the business to Taupo, it doesn't change my services and communication with you all - that's the great thing about technology, we can still sustain our existing workload via the internet.
There will be some changes of course - you won't see my bouncy chirpy self around Cambridge daily. It will also mean that we will have to commute to see you, or do meetings via video chat. However, there will be days that I will be in Cambridge due to other commitments and will schedule most meetings to be in on that day, or have one of my business expert partners to come and see you on behalf (eg signwriter to measure up).
In terms of the events, I will still be fulfilling the season for 2019/2020 and travelling to and from. We will still be immersed in our community here in Cambridge as there are so many people that I treasure and I will continue to fulfill my role as admin on the grapevine until the time arrives that I no longer need to be involved. So, you can't get rid of me that easy 😜
"Sometimes we have to follow our hearts. We have to go for our dreams. We have to decide to choose our own paths and just go all in."
WHEN AND WHERE?
We are still searching for the best location for us as a family - for now I will be operating out of my home in Cambridge until we secure a home and office in Taupo. Timing wise, we are wanting to be settled in before the end of March
WHY ARE YOU TELLING US SO EARLY?
Well, good of you to ask 😆 we figured you may be able to help;
a) Know of a family friendly rental? I’m all ears! (modern, 3-4 bedrooms, garage, dishwasher, warm and dry within Hilltop School Zone)
b) got some connections down in Taupo that you could introduce me to? Rad communities in the area? Local businesses?
c) Make the most of us while we are here, if you have a project that you are waiting to start - this is the prime time (once we have confirmed a property you will all be informed of our new address 😉)
I want to honestly thank every-single-one-of-you that has been hands on in our growth. We probably haven't been able to climb the highest mountains without your training, insights or un-due support.
We are excited about this next part of our journey and we do hope that you will keep in touch and continue to grow with us.
I will always look forward to continuing to working with you and being apart of your success stories.
