WHO ARE WE?
WE know what being a business owner is like. WE know how hard it is to put time aside to handle the basic operational requirements of running a business because you are too busy growing your top line revenue. WE know how difficult the decision is to bring on an employee when sometimes you can’t even pay yourself.
How do we know this? WE’ve been there. WE’ve walked in your shoes.
WE Team was the brainchild of two entrepreneurs, each trying to build their small businesses but finding themselves up at night handling all the mundane but necessary tasks, or trying to upskill themselves on new social and other marketing methods.
Working with an amazing virtual assistant in the Philippines, the entrepreneurs realized that this was a service that other business owners would love to have access to – if they could be sure of the quality of the expertise – and that in the process, WE could change people’s lives, both in NZ and the Philippines.
A collaboration between these two visionary entrepreneurs and their amazing assistant, WE Team was formed as a social enterprise reinvesting its 50% of its profits into our WE Team community in the Philippines, through direct dividends and micro-finance.
HOW GOOD IS WE?

MEET YOUR TEAM
WE are a team of committed, experienced, specialists in office administration, book-keeping, Google Adwords, SEO and Facebook marketing.
WE are led by our NZ founders, Philip McDonald and Kate O’Leary and our Filipino founder, Maridon Partosa.
Philip and Kate are small business owners based in Auckland. They come from professional backgrounds – Philip was an accountant and investment banker before moving to New Zealand and purchasing a small logistics company. Kate has been everything from a lawyer, to a management consultant, to a cocktail creator, to an independent director, to a network marketer, to a mentor and coach. Wanting to spend more time during the week with their daughters, they found themselves putting off the necessary daily admin until late at night, spending evenings at the dining table on their computers. Spending too much time working in their businesses instead of on them.
A friend recommended Maridon as a virtual assistant and between them, Philip and Kate could employ her for 40 hours a week. Maridon is an accomplished VA who recently celebrated the arrival of twin boys. It was during this time that Philip and Kate realised how difficult life could be in the Philippines and proposed a new business opportunity to her.
In 2017, WE Team was created as a social enterprise, with 50% of the profits being returned to the WE Team community. Half of this will be returned as direct dividends, while the other half will be retained by the WE Trust and lent to WE Team contractors (on a no interest basis) in order to encourage upskilling and cover unexpected expenses.
