Rain. That one commodity that can shift across geography as moving water in time and space. Rain was a fiercely fought battle.
Satellites were constantly at work creating superstorms that could move rain to one nation, while denying rain to another.
David had developed technology that could cut through the web of the rain merchants.
A gift of Te Uira communicated through his dna.
Twelve bracelets worn on his right wrist, each held the chips that could communicate to satellites to send rain to where the graphene bracelets were placed, once activated.
Leaving Nouveau, David’s next journey was a twelve nations sojourn. He would place a bracelet in every one of the drought and famine stricken lands on the leg of his tour. He knew who should wear them. His mind vaguely didn’t want to annunciate who the new rain keepers would be. Their hearts like Papatuanuku’s revelry for The Earth, he could see clearly in his vision, while deliberately shielding the facial features of each human vessel from his mind’s eye.
It was always good to keep some surprises for the journey. That way it was still a true adventure. He was excited to get some down time.
No one was to know the bracelets’ purpose. Each held enough power, that would water the lands modestly to sustain the people of those nations, without interfering too much with rain yields being directed to the more affluent empires on the globe who owned the satellites.
Shaving for the last time in what would be an eight weeks trek and sojourn, David caught a reflection of his kanohi in the mirror. (more…)
On the twelfth wing platform of the secured rooftop garden circle, David strolled through the aisle between the rows of lush bountiful green taking what he needed. He altered the the nutrient blends that feed into the garden's atmos-derived mist jets once a week, according to his body's shifting eruthrocyte and leukocytes needs. Mesculin, garlic chives and baby kamo kamo took his fancy today. The sky's light in the setting sun calmed the circadian rhythm system of the circus called his nerves from the day. (more…)
“Other Worldly: the sealed fragrance range,” is an idea buzzing through the brain.
It’s nice to have a creative brain. Sometimes…
with my Iwi entrepreneur cap on then: the no.1 issue though is: do you distill the range from Lake Vostok’s ice shelf H20, sealed off from light or air for at least 14 million years, or do you create the line sourced of H2O from elsewhere? (more…)
What we could do with in New Zealand is looking at the new Maori Millionaires line up of entrepreneurial women.
Can’t wait to see that next line up, in media in 2013. It will be awesome. :)
There’s a good future candidate, above.
[With good angel investement, a bit of a gym franchise, clothing, health line... should do it in a year for a good sports star of NZ].
All things are possible in a new world. The future is unwritten.

Apparently online peeps in the UK have taken to creating their favorite App idea.
One that I found funny was Alex with his App idea to censor information you might already have learned enough times. What he’s suggesting is that people who think original thoughts should be heard more. We need to train people on media platforms to create original content, especially in the way they (we) express ideas. Alex wants to block content that annoys him with his App idea.
For Alex that is: [The App] would end buzz-filled headlines that read something like ‘complex and interrelated socioeconomic factors,’ ‘the squeezed-middle” or ‘worry of the rising fiscal cliff’ and ‘crowd-sourcing a more nuanced approach to helicopter parenting’. Instead we would just read ‘the worry of therising’ – this filtered phrase, would encourage people to stand up, look outside, inspire their imaginations… and burn fat.”
Gosh. Alex is full on. In a good way. (more…)
What we need to do is incentives creation.
A 2013 project.

a: no idea. an open page @ this stage. im kind of thinking it would be nice to pay off my education costs. then one day own a patch of kiwi land. get some maori land for a laugh, too even. especially in a place where my maori ancestors always lived. or where my pakeha ancestors settled in nz too. who knows? i know i should do something entrepreneurial. could be entrepreneurial on the land or ocean too. i am wired that way on both the maori and pakeha sides of my lineage. id be awesome at distribution markets of nz product, i know that as well. the last few years i’ve been wired more conceptually though. blueprints conceptual thinking has been the flow, in the ideas not shared online. this time, i might make the concepts tangible.

Creating as a fun discipline is when you see in a series of ideas that… “their spirit shines through”. Each idea is imbued with a certain degree of spirit. A concept is a seed of greatness. This spirit causes good ideas to shine.
The principle of ideas shining through is also seen in the faces of newborns and children as they learn new ideas daily. Why good teachers are special people to us all.
We shall press towards the mark of higher ground as the labourer is always worthy of their hire. We will not muzzle our citizens’ voices as in their combined efforts we are made strong when we listen to our majorities voices and our children.
There are always wheels within wheels of a dream we will turn. Creativity helps us to create and activate new wheels that are productive, useful, just and resourceful. Equality is a crown of thorns to be proud of, made up of the twisted slain dragons of greed’s selfish machinations. Where a cross of kindness intersects between sky and earth, greed is always crucified and justice shines as our gold with the law of freedom reigning over oppression, greed and fear. Where the spirit of freedom is and is upheld, true liberty abounds.
We delight in equality, justice, truth and a just weight that is noble and not too heavy worn on the hearts and smiles of all of our people.
–what New Zealand has to attain to, navigating through greedy designs on our country in Aotearoa, a land of plenty and abundance. New Zealand citizens must self-determine our own just liberty, known in New Zealand as our Tino Rangatiratanga. A beautiful concept to advance, when upheld.

A New Zealand University released a new report titled: Franchising New Zealand 2012 survey.
What the study found is that franchising Kiwi ideas are worth $20b to the New Zealand economy p.a. The study found that 22,400 franchisee businesses operating in the country are employing 101,800. Even more remarkable is that 90% are homegrown franchise brands.
mood: imagine. see. be. do.
part iii – creative blue print planning - imagining our families first million dollar, generating p.a ideas.
As previously envisaged, a product line going to China would be ideal. What would it need to make it stand out? Or be supported more to make a good dent in the world’s no.1 economy by the year 2016 in the nation that has 1/6th of the world’s population too?
what we need to do and get done:
1. We need to create a culture around the product line.
2. A loyalty club will be created and rewarded of the product line.
3. We will create an App. (more…)
Nephew no.3 has graduated out of his high school blazer. Woot!
He’s off to a New Zealand University next year.
Like his momma, (who was an A+ college student at 18… a geek freak :), he won a prize to go.
His dad does post graduate business papers as a student and entrepreneurial pioneer too. We are so proud of him.
Creative and sporty, full credit goes to his team of teachers, his peers and high school.
Kia Tupato. Kia Kaha. Karawhiua. Life’s journey a fun trail of discovery. Have fun learning adventurously. :)

Creative Blue Print Planning – Our Families 1st Million Generating p.a Business Idea – Part II.
When I last wrote on this idea, it grew out of a brainstorming session with niece 2 at our family table over lunch at the folks’ place. On the first chat (that then became the first planning session notes) we made a fair start.
What else must we do to evolve our product line to it’s $20 million capacity earning potential in 10 years time?
1. We need to brainstorm all of our product ideas in more detail. Cross reference with market research too.
2. Collate the best concepts (ideas) into groupings, like a product line.
3. Decide on the leader (the key signifer, or the diamond centre piece of the line).
4. The remaining products, what will be their roll out after the first product (or product grouping) is launched. (more…)
