Women in Trade - Kia Kaha Electrical, Hamilton

We chat with father and business owner, Noema Johnson, about how he not only encouraged his daughter to take up a trade but how he is actively helping her to succeed in an electrical career... Hamilton based Noema, has worked in the electrical trade for the last 38 years. He's spent the last 10 years encouraging his daughter, Demi, to "jump into a trade". Now in her mid-twenties she has taken up his advice and this year started her training as an electrician. She is studying at the Waikato Institue of Technology (Wintec) on the Electrical Pre-Trade Training course, aimed at getting students ready for apprenticeship. Demi is one of only four women on the course and has teamed up with Mere, another inspirational women who is training in her 30's, all while having the pressure of children and family commitments. After the polytech based first year, each of the girls will be required to find and start an apprenticeship. Not only is Noema the inspiration and encourageme

Busy homeowner Michelle holds down parenting, full-time work and studying towards her PhD. She shares with us how she used Builderscrack to outsource her housework so she could focus on the important stuff... How It Started To say Michelle is a driven person is an understatement.

Every weekend there are at least five to seven friends invited, and they are having a sleepover. I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”. It wasn't only hard finding the tim
