Happy Father's Day

Samantha from Glen Eden Optometrists

Dear Dads, to those that have kids, those that have loved and lost, to those who live in waiting to be a Dad and to those who are father figures - we hope today is kind to you. For those that want to escape today and the hurts it brings, we pray others are respectful and the day passes quickly. Whilst parents should be acknowledged all the time, today holds the simple reminder of all that you do. We hope the day brings you a special and renewed love and passion for those and from those that made you a Dad.
Happy Father's Day

Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
