Investment Opportunity The Wealthness Academy

‘Wealthness’

Noun to describe a new mindset. We can be rich but not wealthy. Life-changing, bucket list experiences created for high impact empowerment. Wealthness will change the way we think, the way we see the world, the way we interact with people, the way we work. Our attitude towards business and the way we live. It will change lives completely … it WILL set us free.

Bay Ridge Wealthness Academy

New Zealand is the most awe inspiring and diverse country on the planet. Monumental, Lord of The Rings landscapes and the foundry of legend and myth.

Situated at the Top of the South Island we find Ruby Bay. In the heart of Ruby Bay lies Bay Ridge Farm, truly something special and unique. This eco-home is set in orchards and vineyards and is powered by solar with a bio plant for waste management.

Located above the Ruby Coast, with absolutely stunning 360 degree bay and mountain views, the 12ha (35acre) property is currently set up as an equestrian centre. The grounds immediately around the house are well established with ornamental gardens and entertainment areas. The pool enclosure adjacent to the house features a 10m by 5m solar-heated pool, plus an eight person hot tub set in a superb entertaining area with those stunning views. The pool house incorporates a changing room, toilet and shower and a multi-purpose studio room.

The property is currently 272 square metre modern 5 bedroom home comprising of a home office with separate entrance, walk-in linen cupboard/drying room, kitchen dining, formal dining and separate formal lounge. The master suite – with walk-in wardrobe and generous en-suite bathroom – has french doors accessing the verandah, as does the large guest double bedroom. All five bedrooms enjoy views across to the western ranges, while the country style kitchen overlooks Tasman Bay. The spacious family bathroom includes separate bath and shower. Fully double glazed, the house is warmed via a ducted heat pump system throughout, augmented by a wood burner in the formal lounge. A newly installed solar array takes care of power consumption during the day.

With minimal alteration, the current layout provides accommodation up to seventeen guests:

  • Barn 2 x double = 4 people
  • Unit 1 x double = 2 people
  • Pool House 1 x double = 2 people
  • Unit 2 1 x single = 1 people
  • Unit 3 1 x double = 2 people
  • House 3 x 2 double = 6 people

Storage and workshop facilities are taken care of with a massive, newly built 300m2 steel framed barn. This provides simple conversion to accommodation, offices, lecture and treatment rooms.

Further Off-Grid Option

Set on approximately 315ha (778 Acres), this hunting block has it all. Deer, pigs (boar) and a great trout fishing river with plenty of flat area to build an off-the-grid cabin if desired. There are some clearings in the native bush and bike tracks for easy stalking, there is also cellphone coverage which is an added bonus.

Wealthness Weeks

Target market:

1) International high achievers, leaders, entrepreneurs and those with consummate desire for a bigger life.

2) Those looking for a high-end New Zealand experience.

Adventure Tourism: A recently released study shows that adventure travel has been growing 70% year over year since 2011. It is now a $300 billion industry, and it’s still growing.

How Wealthness is achieved: 

For entrepreneurs: Through The Philosophy of I and life changing experiences. Our high impact activities are designed to show us that we can achieve anything. These activities act as metaphors, translating into true wealthness and equipping us with mental tools to deal with the adversities we face in daily struggles to achieve goals.

For Tourists: Adventure tours in New Zealand are massive and part of our culture. Traditionally, they are a little, shall we say, rough and ready. Bay Ridge offers the ultimate in high end experiences coupled with the luxuries we expect from a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

The Philosophy of I: ‘Explored in The Omniscience Principle, it is mind and mindfulness, it is true focus. It is looking inward, not out, exploring our very soul and finding our true character. Inside, deep inside we are good people. We are vulnerable and often scared. We can be lost, rejected, dispossessed and without identity. We can be lacking self-love, assurance and fortitude. We can be confused and often lack focus, lack direction, lack motivation. There is nothing we can do about the past; we do not know what the future holds. All we have is this moment, this very second in time, space and the universe … and that’s a truly empowering thing.’

The Philosophy of I, teaches us to embrace the moment, victims of nothing. The noise, the pressure, the stress, the eternal, back-breaking grind; it is all distilled down to the simplest and most formidable of things … I.

Life experiences: New Zealand offers a landscape of infinite opportunity. It took a certain character; a pioneering character to leave their home and make a new life at the other side of the world. This culture is ever present with adventure tourism, New Zealand’s biggest attraction. At the end of a wealthness week, a customer will leave richer, more rounded  ready to fulfil and exceed their potential. New Zealand enforces the strictest safety standards and all tours are led by qualified instructors.

Market

The global market for wellness and personal development is big and getting bigger. Wellness is now estimated to be a $4.2 Trillion global industry with 12.8% growth from 2016-2018. New Global Wellness Institute research reveals this market is growing at an historic rate: nearly twice as fast as the global economy. (globalwellnessinstitute.org)

Self-improvement is about consciously identifying and developing one or more facets of your life. From the perspective of an entrepreneur, self-improvement will often entail some sort of mental training but can mean anything from practising stress management to valuable goal-setting. Professionals are often keen to learn things like time-management techniques (for better prioritising tasks) and increasing productivity without compromising mental wellbeing.

Niels Eék, psychologist

Wealthness is developed for the entrepreneur and leaders who by their nature, run the greatest risk of burn out. With governments around the world increasing access for those with stress related chronic health conditions, it’s one of the fastest-growing industries in the world.

Growth plans and revenue

Bay Ridge Wealthness Academy will establish a blueprint for the roll out of Wealthness across Pacifica, Europe and Americas.

Given the rapidly growing nature and size of of the wellness and adventure tourism market, it is not surprising there is potential for significant investor returns.

Questions Answered

How safe is New Zealand?

We’re rated in international surveys as one of the world’s most peaceful, least corrupt countries.

The 2017 Global Peace Index, which compares 162 countries for the risk of personal violence, rates New Zealand as the world’s second safest country just after Iceland.

Transparency International’s 2017 Corruption Perception Index ranks us the least corrupt country in the world, equal with Denmark.

We don’t even have any seriously dangerous wildlife for you to worry about.

About the only thing that might be in danger from an animal is your vehicle. Kea, parrot-like birds found at higher altitudes in the South Island, sometimes display a taste for the rubber on windscreens, doors and mirrors.

Peaceful community

New Zealanders are by and large open-minded and believe people should be free to live the lifestyle they choose.

There are laws to prevent people abusing anyone’s freedom of expression and speech, and we have a reliable and trustworthy police force you can turn to which solves a comparatively high number of all crimes.

Police don’t harass you here. They have strict rules they must follow and can’t act arbitrarily. As a rule they don’t carry personal firearms.

Freedom of movement

Because it’s pretty safe and secure, you and your family can feel free to get out and enjoy everything New Zealand has to offer.

You can expect to walk or cycle the streets, play in playgrounds, catch public transport and generally do the things you want to do without fear.

You can enjoy New Zealand’s open spaces at will, discover the beaches, have fun in the playgrounds and parks, picnic, explore the bush, climb mountains and cycle to your heart’s content.

What is the legal system in New Zealand?

NZ Justice Link

New Zealand’s government is modelled on the British system (the Westminster model) and is based on a concept called separation of powers. This means the institutions of government are divided into 3 branches. New Zealand’s courts are supported by 29 tribunals that help resolve civil law disputes.

A fair deal

In many countries the blight of corruption makes everyday life uncertain and difficult. Not in New Zealand.

Hidden or unadvertised fees are usually illegal and enforcement is supported by Kiwis’ in-built expectations of ‘fair play’, integrity, honesty and trust. There are cases of corruption, but they make headlines because of their relative rarity.

You can expect to pay the advertised price or fee for services and goods and no more. You can also expect officials and people in authority do what they’re supposed to do without requiring extra cash, ‘service fees’ or favours.

Is the adventure tourism industry regulated in New Zealand?

Adventure Tourism programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks. Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

The adventure tourism industry is heavily regulated by Worksafe NZ under the Adventure Activities Regulations

Is adventure tourism sustainable?

(Source: https://www.tourismnewzealand.com)

Published by The George Washington University, the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) and Vital Wave Consulting, the ATDI offers a ranking of countries around the world based on principles of sustainable adventure tourism and is calculated through a combination of expert survey data and quantitative data gathered from international indices.

The report saw Switzerland and New Zealand topping the rankings on sustainable adventure tourism for developed nations while Chile ranked first in the category among developing nations for the first time.

“Adventure Tourism plays a significant role in the 100% Pure New Zealand experience – and to be ranked as the second most sustainable in the developed markets is a great success for New Zealand and the tourism industry,” says Chris Roberts, General Manager Corporate Affairs Tourism New Zealand.

Overall, New Zealand rose from third to second place. New Zealand ranked first in the Safety pillar of the ATDI, based on its impeccable reputation as a safe destination and low levels of corruption. It also ranked second among developed countries in the Entrepreneurship pillar, and scored an 82.1 on the Index of Economic Freedom (The Heritage Foundation)

With the goal of promoting and informing sustainable development of tourism, the ATDI was created to support entrepreneurs and governments who want to create and market sustainable adventure tourism products and services for the benefit of communities and the environment.

“Countries like Switzerland, New Zealand and Canada can provide models for developing countries as well as continue to innovate and push the boundaries further. Their stable economy, wealth of adventure activities and dedication from their tourism boards on nature-based travel, indicate an understanding of the long-term value of well-managed adventure travel,” said Shannon Stowell, president of the ATTA.

How strong is the New Zealand economy?

Link to stats.govt.nz

New Zealand’s GDP rose by 0.7 per cent in the three months to the end of September, which is more than most analysts had expected.

ASB had tipped a 0.7 per cent rise, but the Reserve Bank had been assuming the increase would be just 0.3 per cent and the country’s biggest bank, ANZ, had forecast 0.5 per cent growth.

The figure is adjusted for inflation, but not population growth.

How is the New Zealand climate?

New Zealand has a largely temperate climate. While the far north has subtropical weather during summer, and inland alpine areas of the South Island can be as cold as – 10°C in winter, most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperatures, moderate rainfall, and abundant sunshine.

The Nelson region

The nickname “Sunny Nelson” is earned because we’re one of the the sunniest places in New Zealand with around 2,500h of sunshine per year. … It is surrounded by 3 beautiful national parks: the Abel Tasman National Park, Nelson Lakes National Park and Kahurangi National Park.

Is New Zealand expensive?

New Zealand is a dream destination for many expatriates. Part adventure capital of the world, part Lord of the Rings, this small island nation is appealing to expats, especially those with families.

With the Mercer Cost of Living Survey placing Auckland 98th in the world in terms of cost, and Wellington a very reasonable 123rd, expats really can maintain a high standard of living on most incomes.

Tourism by the numbers

The contribution made by tourism to the New Zealand economy: 

  • Total annual tourism expenditure is $40.9 billion  $112 million per day.

  • Tourism generates a direct annual contribution to GDP of $16.2 billion, or 5.8%, and a further indirect contribution of $11.2 billion, another 4% of New Zealand’s total GDP.  
  • 229,566 people are directly and another 163,713 indirectly employed in tourism in New Zealand – 14.4% of the total number of people employed in New Zealand. 
  • The annual GST paid by tourists is $3.8 billion, including $1.8 billion collected from international visitors.
