Mother-daughter businesswomen combine for Mother’s Day comp


Six Nelson business women have joined forces and organised a pamper package competition to celebrate Mother’s Day.


The women, who are all mother and daughter business partners, include Nelson Real Estate Agent, Susa Guhl and her daughter, Ana Fierek, owners of the Caci Clinic, Paula and Melanie Potter and Ivy Flower Art florists, Yvette and Carolyne Brake.


Susa and Ana frequently purchase flowers from florists, Yvette and Carolyne and started chatting one day about how many mother and daughter business owners there were in Nelson.  They all agreed that it would be a nice idea to support other family businesses just like theirs and decided to approach mutual friends, Paula and Melanie to put together a pamper package competition to mark this mother’s day.


“It is nice to be able to do it, there are a lot of families in Nelson who work together,” says Susa Guhl.


All women say they enjoy working side by side and feel there is a lot of understanding and support that you would not normally receive from a regular work place relationship.


“We’ve always been close and it is great doing things we both like doing together, we can read each other’s mind and we have got our different strengths in the business,” says Melanie Potter.


The prize includes facials from the Caci Clinic, High Tea at Melrose House and flowers from Ivy Flower Art.
