When I applied to rent a house and answered the rental agent saying that I was Self-Employed, she responded like I had just used a swear word; had I used the f-word, it would have been more acceptable. I also have had conversations with phone providers, naturally, treating my having a phone as an expense, while in fact, as an entrepreneur I consider my phone an asset making me money. Applying for lending, even at peer lending entities, as I could not show earnings with someone else’s name as underwriter, I was unable to obtain a loan. Our current economic system allows for employment only and perhaps the high profile entrepreneurs who have enough assets to show and draw enough ‘salary’ from their enterprises. Entrepreneurs will understand that to manifest your concept you need to be very creative in raising funds from family or bootstrapping and many other strategies which I will not discuss here. I have been treated by bankers as if I was there to rob the bank, so yes they certainly understood the banking system better than I did, but I am convinced that I understand money better than they do. With GOLORE I hope to function as a dealmaker between the young entrepreneur and the provider until, collectively, we can change from an employment to an entrepreneurial economy. I also listen to the current leaders using all the global buzz words, however, unless we create a strong home economy first, meeting the needs of the family, Aotearoa / New Zealand will forever be vulnerable to every change in the global economy and countries such as the USA. GOLORE promotes an entrepreneurial economy integrating the social, commercial and legal life of our people, making it truly sustainable through any period of disease, death or disaster whether individually, collectively or more, even nationally. GOLORE is set to be an entrepreneur home economy to become an international prototype.
