Welcome: Frequently Asked Questions
What is the address? Is there plenty of free parking?
Just find your way to Rose Park Hotel in Parnell: 92-102 Gladstone Road, Parnell, Auckland, 1052 (
Google Map Link). See:
Yes! There will be plenty of on-site and off-street parking. For on-site parking, go through the main entrance (look for the big red sign) and you will see the available parks. Once parked, head to reception and you will be pointed in the direction of our conference room (it's on the top floor with access via the lft or stairs).
Jane and Steven (directors of www.The-Doorway.com) will welcome you; then you can get that cup of tea or coffee to settle you in ready for the course.
What time do I arrive? How long does the day last?
The course runs from 9.00 am to 6.00pm on Saturday 25 November.
Please arrive by 8.45am; though do arrive anytime from 8.30am. Go to the main reception and ask for the Rose Room. You will be directed to the lift and the conference room is on the third floor (follow the signs from the lift).
It's worth having a tea, coffee or cold drink and getting settled in. You're about to be immersed in a good amount of energising information and an good start is the right way to start :)
Should we take notes? Can we record sessions?
Absolutely - that is a great idea and most people do take notes. You will be provided with a complimentary workbook and pen. There is space for making notes. There are many new concepts and ideas being presented by Jane, so get your pen ready!!
Unfortunately you cannot record the sessions; though we will be making useful content and some recordings of exercises available. We'll let you know via the FaceBook page and via email.
What can we do for lunch?
There are local cafes and shops, as well as the hotel, where you can get lunch (
see the Rose Park menu here).
A local favourite cafe is "Rosie" at 82 Gladstone Rd, Parnell
www.rosieparnell.nz. To get there ... facing the road from Rose Park Hotel, turn right. Go past the diary and shops, and it's just a few minutes down the road.
The lunch break is one hour and 15 minutes, so be sure to get back in time :)
Will we be offerred ongoing support?
Yes, absolutely. Once you have started your journey you are not alone. To really succeed in achieving "everyday breakthroughs" you need to use MindScape everyday. And just as every top performing athlete and team uses coaches and mentors, you should too.
Jane is available to provide mentor sessions. Just ask her or Steven and they can help you book a session. Mentor sessions cost NZ$250 per hour and NZ$195 per half hour.
Once you walk through your business doorway and see the new potential in your life and your business being realised, you will be motivated to keep making personal and professional progress. This is how you maximise your investment in the course and your business.
Is the course deductible? What about mentor sessions?
Yes courses are generally 100% tax deductible as a business expense against taxable profit. This makes attending the course highly financially effective. Though do check with your accountant around your entitlement to this.
If you would like an invoice for tax purposes please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you do this? Yes, this just makes business sense. To speed things up, let us know:
Mentor Sessions with Jane are similarly tax efficient and makes savvy business sense.
What name is the invoice made out to? You personally, or your business name?
What address do you want on the invoice?
Do you have a GST number? If so, what is it?
Do you have a Xero Network Key? If so, what is it?
Now that I'm in Parnell are there any places that you recommend?
You could go for a walk at lunchtime in the beautiful Rose Gardens just across the road.
Take in the aroma and beauty of the gardens. Find the fountain area and reflect on what you have leaned so far on the course. You can also walk through the trees down to the water's edge.
ps, You could pack your walking shoes as it is not far from the Auckland waterfront - a perfect opportunity for an early morning or evening stroll.
