Five years ago I started a business in the Bellville/Durbanville area near Cape Town. Extra Mile offers a variety of services, but the main idea is to become the link between expats all over the world and their elderly loved ones staying behind. I want to be the one who visits, assists, celebrates and helps wherever necessary. The stand in daughter who sets the expat mind at ease with reassuring feedback. On the Extra Mile face book page you can read all about the services we offer. Extra Mile is about a love for people and sincere old fashioned tender loving care.

Your Business Long Description
Extra mile is a multifaceted business venture founded in September 2014. It branches out into various business ideas, ranging from Lego play parties for children to English conversational classes for adults and airport transfers - all with a personal touch. The main focus is on children and families, their activities and their individual needs; guesthouses and the elderly in retirement villages. Transport, catering, entertainment and various services and skills offered, form the links among the diverse components. Each is a business in its own right and somehow they all support each other in a unique way. One thing they DO all have in common though, is a love for people. When it comes to customer satisfaction, extra mile does not only drive the extra mile, but they sure do GO the extra mile… with a smile.

Long Business Description

Barfoot & Thompson is a family-owned, non-franchised real estate company. This model allows any of the company’s 1,500+ salespeople to introduce buyers and share information on any property that is listed. This increases the reach of property campaigns and creates a scale of competition for every client. The current market share for the company is 40% in the Auckland and Northland regions. This means that one in three houses in Auckland is sold by Barfoot & Thompson.

I have a national Diploma in Travel & Tourism and my first job in the travel industry was for a large consortium. Eventually I purchased my own franchise and within a three-year period, achieved considerable success in the business.

Landfall for me was Auckland, after emigrating from South Africa. I’m still here, together with my husband and two children and we love it. As a family we enjoy the outdoors and experiencing new things together. I am quite competitive and have taken part in a few CrossFit competitions, swims, triathlons and cycle races. Then again, I’m just as happy settling on the couch with the family, eating popcorn and watching a movie.

Call or email me at Barfoot & Thompson Northcote. I speak English and Afrikaans and I’m in the business of showing up when it’s needed.

My love for the business never wains.

Sober Living in New Zealand. Get Alcohol and Drug Rehab Support at The House of Hope - Auckland

Alcohol and drug addiction can have a lot of disruptive effects on your life and taking the first step towards living sober in NZ is essential for you. Drinking heavily and using addictive substances isn't just bad for your general health - it can also have damaging effects on others in your life.

Though drug addiction and alcoholism is a disease and must be treated differently, it's important to incorporate other programmes. Without this integrated approach, relapse rates increase.

The House of Hope is a recovery center dedicated to helping individuals live alcohol and drug-free in order to have a better life. We have successfully helped countless people and can improve the quality of life for anyone struggling with addiction or other substance abuse issues.

We achieve this by inviting guests to enter a safe space where they are surrounded only by people who want to find sobriety.
