Coaches Korero

We caught up with Tasha (Waikato/Maniapoto, Ngati Mutunga, Ngati Rarua, Ngati Toa) about becoming a Hinepreneur Coach, the influence it has had on her and her advice for future Hinepreneur.



What has your journey been like in becoming a Hinepreneur Coach?

Becoming a Hinepreneur Coach has opened up amazing doors and helped me self heal into a space where I can now infiltrate and help others to find that place and to find those things that hold them back.

It has been life changing to go from a vibrant space to a dark space to now a place where I am able to self-coach and not worry about negative energies. It reminded me that change first starts within. I’ve been a coach probably all my life but this has given me the opportunity to professionalize these skills and I’m honored to be a Hinepreneur coach. It’s been amazing!

What are three key learning’s from this journey?

The three key learning’s for me are:

  1. Being grateful for the space that I am currently in
  2. Having the ability to look back on my life and not be so hard on myself, to start to celebrate those beautiful and amazing things that I’ve done with whānau, hapu and iwi.
  3. Redirecting and circulating confidence back into the world and reflecting on the fact that I am able to share this passion with others.

What are the common themes that your clients need help with?

I have noticed four common themes including:
Clients initially come to explore a specific business issues but we tend to uncover challenges in life that either feeds into that business issue or is a path that needs to be traveled before considering their business.
The fact that we are not paying gratitude to what we’ve done. We all have skills that we take for granted but we need to recognize those skills and realize that we can both help people and monetize those skillsets.
Changing mindsets – we’re met with two options: to focus our energies on opportunities or on fear. Focus your mind on opportunities rather than focusing on fear, fear of failure, fear of rejection. By focusing on the opportunities you’re transported into spaces that you may never have imagined.
We come from a moemoeā culture but many people are stuck on this conveyor belt of – going to school, leaving school and getting a job, buying a whare, having a whānau but it doesn’t work like that for a lot of people. Find your passion and make that a reality. It is so special to be a part of moments like these where I get to witness people creating and living their dream lives.

If someone wanted to become a Hinepreneur, what advice would you give?

Go for it! Use it as a space to build where you are, grow yourself, heal yourself if there’s some healing that needs to be done, embrace it and learn from all the people around you. It’s an amazing experience and you get to meet amazing people. When you become a Hinepreneur coach you get to see whānau develop their own ideas and see the glow and happiness on their face when they take their idea from concept to actually opening their business – its an indescribable feeling.
