And he said that it's nice talking to people on the bottom of the earth or hanging on for dear life. We will get straight into it. We got 12 questions they kind of random I know what they are, but I don't know what the next question is. So the first question is, what was your first job?Michael Heppell 0:31I was a roofing contractor, because my dad was a roofing contractor. And he said, when I was nine years old, son, one day this will all be yours. And when you're nine years old, the prospect of owning two vans and six ladders is quite exciting, Danny. So I was like, Oh, I'm going to be a roofer. So I left school as quickly as I could. I left school when I was 15. And I started to be a roofer. And after about a week, I realised that made a terrible decision. Definitely, definitely should not have decided to be a roofer. So I am so then I did I did the job, but I did it for six years. Didn't apprenticeship learned how to put roofs on and then started to follow my passion. So that was the first job I was a roofer. Like if you would like somebody to come along, give you a nice job with a roof estimates are always free.Danny de Hek 1:30My father, my stepfather was a painter and I finished up being a house painter, the ten years.Michael Heppell 1:35There you go.Danny de Hek 1:36You have to follow your family instinct sometimes, but for a week well done.Michael Heppell 1:43It was a week. It was a week that I before we asked, I didn't want to do it. But I did it for six years. I was 22 when I stopped.Danny de Hek 1:52Oh, any mishaps along the way becauseMichael Heppell 1:55There are loads loads. I had a really bad fall once. I am actually the weird thing was I once fell off a roof that was three storeys high, fell right from the top landed in the garden and there wasn't anything not a scratch. I looked at I looked at my mates. And they were just all absolutely double up laughing. They thought it was hilarious. I had fallen off. And then another time I felt one story, but I had slates on my shoulder well, late, and I fell and they slashed my hands and my wrists. And I was in a pretty bad way after that one didn't wasn't quite sure what I wanted to go back to work. But I did. And I recovered. Or I've got all six fingersDanny de Hek 2:39All got that problem. Right. Question number two, if you could choose anything to do for a day, what would it be? I'll just make sure I've got that right.

This is the place where I share my experience, knowledge and skills.Transcribed by OtterDanny de Hek 0:00Welcome along with Lance Hastie, he’s going to be asked 12 random questions by WHAT : DE HEK Podcasts. So we’re going to get straight into it before you wonder who this guy is, I think you’ve just been out running, is it correct?Lance Hastie 0:16And no, just come off a job site, we’re just putting some smart labels on our smart nuits units. I’ve just taken a bit of time out in the afternoonDanny de Hek 0:25Right? You’re a bit of a runner. So you do look like you could actually be in your running gear, because I know ya.Lance Hastie 0:31I got caught out, then I did go for a run this morning.Danny de Hek 0:33Well there you go, I have been doing a bit of running myself lately. But it’s a different story. And I’m not here to interview myself. I’m here to interview you. So let’s go. Got the 12 questions. I’ve shuffled. I’ve got 107 questions, and I go through and I shuffle them. And we did have a bit of committee to decide what hundred we got to 107 questions would be good as people who come along on a podcast, and I’ve just picked out 12 of them. And I don’t even know if they’re myself. Hopefully they’re not too personal. Let’s see what happens. What kind of impact do you believe you have on people? Who are the heavy one straightaway?Lance Hastie 1:13A calming impact. I tend to diffuse people in calm them down.Danny de Hek 1:19Right? Have you tried that with myself,Lance Hastie 1:23I would actually say yes.Danny de Hek 1:28Excellent. So you had a calming effect on people?Lance Hastie 1:30Yes, I can team just to pull and chil them out.Danny de Hek 1:36Right, right today, because this will be listened to probably tomorrow. But let’s say she election a day in America at the moment. If you were going to calm the candidates down? What sort of words of advice would you give them?Lance Hastie 1:50Start with petrol and a match?Danny de Hek 1:53I know, imagine, I just found out today, I don’t know how this works. And you might know better than me. But basically, the one that gets the most votes doesn’t necessarily win the election.Lance Hastie 2:03Oh, that’s an interesting point. I didn’t realise that. There’s so much going on there. But it really does make you grateful to be anywhere but right at the moment. I love the country. But I really wouldn’t want to be there at the moment or having to make that sort of a decision.See Full TXT Script at https://www.dehek.com/general/podcast/what-de-hek-podcast-12-questions-with-lance-hastie/

So they've been shuffled. I don't even know what they are. But we did actually have a committee once and we come up with 107 meaningful questions to actually ask people. And technically, there shouldn't be any better questions than this. But if there is, you don't have to answer. It's all impromptu. So start off with the first question.Richard Andrew 0:37 Where's the scoreboard?Danny de Hek 0:39 Oh, well, that's the customers below with the comments. So anyone that's got the tomatoes.

Maybe like on your tombstone?Matthew Mewse 1:32Okay. Um, I think there are lots of glib responses to that. And there are some funny ones as well.

And he could make a good case. case, a baker,Danny de Hek 2:02Brilliant food. I love it. Right? That’s question one down. I just realise you’ve got 30 increase in so you might get one extra. Okay.

They are a law unto themselves, Judge, Jury and Executioner is the STUFF Newspaper!Back in 2010 I had a disgruntled customer who felt justified in telephoning my clients on one Saturday morning, trying to defame me and my business after feeling my actions were unjustified. The issue was co-existing with a messy divorce which was fuelled by two ladies ganging up on me to tarnish my business.In fairness to the STUFF newspaper they did call me to get my side of the story, if they didn’t, then it would’ve been a lot worse than the story they were about to publish. One thing I did learn, once they had started investing time in a story, they want to publish it anyway. I was a bit dumfounded by the information they had been fed and to the Editor’s credit, he did listen to me and did give me a chance to speak.10 years later I decided to contact STUFF and see whether they would be willing to remove the article, three long emails later, basically they don’t care and they won’t back down.10 years later I now have a much stronger presence on the Internet and I can now publish my own content. So when you search for peoples names, my content can be in the search results for years as well. I cannot publish any part of Roeland van den Bergh’s email replies to me, due to his copyright on the bottom of his emails, so I will summarise his replies.Hello STUFFSubject: Act of kindness to Danny de HekI’m asking for a favour…I had this article written about me about 10 years ago, at the time I was going through a messy divorce and my wife was out to get me. One of her beloved friends was Sharon Jones of Canterbury Equestrian, the information is inaccurate and certainly not fair to my character or my nature.The reason why I would respectfully like the information removed, is as every time you search for my name, “Danny de Hek” up comes this article. It has cost me a lot of explaining and embarrassment because people don’t read, they just see that I was talked about in the STUFF newspaper.It’s been 10 years and it still affects me! The information is not accurate and doesn’t do anything but harm my reputation. Is it possible to have it removed?https://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/4598570/Canterbury-Equestrian-disgusted-by-treatmentSo you get a better picture of who I am and what I do check out my website:dehek.comTo understand a bit about my character, check out my YouTube channel:https://www.youtube.com/user/dannydehekhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CRuhJ7zUeUSometimes when I’m talking to people I feel like I’m talking Japanese, I do find it hard to communicate and express what I mean. Living with dyslexia is difficult and I’m continuously getting misinterpreted. I’m not making excuses, but I don’t need any false information holding me back and I think 10 years of poorly researched information is enough.Happy to talk to anyone on the phone 021 961 652Best RegardsDanny de HekRoeland van den BerghBasically stuff doesn’t remove content and wanted to know why I hadn’t done something about it sooner. If the information was inaccurate, give them more content and they will edit if necessary.Read more at https://www.dehek.com/general/podcast/disgusting-treatment-by-roeland-van-den-bergh-stuff-business-news/

Because I'm a bit busy at the moment. I said, So am I good luck with your event. But everyone's busy me.Paul Starling 0:50 Yeah.Danny de Hek 0:54 If you really want people to come to the event, you don't just sort of give them a long email and measure we can just live life like that as you want I want out of my business is I just want lots of clients using my services, what, just put that all on one big email and send it to everybody. And then when they're not busy, they can read it and give me money.just brilliant.David Clarkson 1:16 Adds like an ideal solution, Danny.Danny de Hek 1:21 And the guy doesn't remember it was really funny, but he's an accountant. This guy and he's been watching me on LinkedIn for a wall and I don't know from our site, but I was out mountain biking with a group of about 15 or 20 people we were walking through McCain's Island. I know we were biking and there was a big group of people and we're blocking the track and he comes fast on his mountain bike and yells out Get out of the way and afterwards at the coffee coffee place I went up to him I said you know those your language was atrocious. I said you didn't need to talk to us like that. We just having a good time and then you can find pass with that. I said just get a hold of the woman. Oh, well, I shouldn't be on the track and and he doesn't realise I know he's the same accountant.Anyway, you've got to be hate yourself all the time. It wouldDavid Clarkson 2:19 be a Rick.

So the time we got back from our walk, we actually had a more of an outline sketch on how to what we thought would be ways to do a good podcast. And then we decided, Well, why don't we just do a podcast on how to start a podcast for other people who might thinking about doing a podcast?Helen Oakes  2:03  podcasts.

You are listening to Danny, on WHAT : DE HEK podcast. This is the place where I share my experience, knowledge and skills.Danny de Hek 0:16Yeah, so welcome along. Helen Oakes and I’m Danny de Hek. If youre interested. Now this is Helen’s first podcast of her own, we’re going to set up Helen. Helen is actually a photographer. She’s also my partner. And since COVID we’ve been looking for, to market ourselves in different wonderful ways. So as you can imagine… a photographer is having a great time at the moment because we can’t get out in public so much. So why don’t you first tell me how you actually first got involved in photography, and why you love doing photography.Helen Oakes 0:52Okay, I first got involved probably in my 20s, I would say, even a, well actually even a little bit in my teens, I quite liked photography and I had a tiny little camera, it was like a little flipout camera an Instamax camera. And I got that as a birthday present one time, and I thought that was the bees knees and I went around taking photos. It’s the sort of camera that you put these flashes, big long…um there’s about 12 flashes that you stick on the top of it.Danny de Hek 1:20Oh yeah, they look like the blue bottles on the beach.Helen Oakes 1:24Yeah, so you put those on the top of the camera, and you take photos. And it was really cool. I thought it was really fun, really cool. And then as I got older, I used to watch my brother taking photos and he had a SLR, which was a Pentax camera and I thought Wow, that looks really cool, professional looking camera. So then I decided I’d get myself a camera. So I got myself a Sigma camera, no, Minolta camera with a Sigma lens on it. And it had all the manual dials on it. And I was like, Oh, this looks a bit tricky, but I’ll have a go. And I used to always put it on one setting and I thought if I put it on this setting I’m bound to get good photos. So I’d always put it on one setting. And then I gradually started playing around a bit more with it and started learning more. And then I used to look at my brother’s photos and go, Wow, they’re really amazing. I want to get further in the photography field. Yeah.Danny de Hek 2:16So what type of photography would you say is your genre, as the say?Helen Oakes 2:20My genre would be people photography. I love taking photos of people. I love taking photos of sports people.Danny de Hek 2:27Right, have you done any events that come to mind that you’re really proud of?Helen Oakes 2:30Yeah, yeah, I love doing gymnastic events like National Gymnastic competitions, right. And I love doing just portraits of people, for workshoots and also for sport shoots.Danny de Hek 2:46So I mean, photography has taken a bit of a twist over the last few years because I know I’m quite like I used to call myself a professional photographer and then you explained my type of photography that I am but I think because most people have a camera in their pocket, they can pull it out they can take photos. Ah how do you actually compete when you’re at a gymnastic event and there’s mom and dad taking photos with their friend or their daughter or their friends children? Yeah, is that something that makes you industry hard.For the complete script check out our website athttps://www.dehek.com/podcast/mode-de-vie-podcast-episode-one-introduction/

Just a few tips on discovery in the current climate...I use and thoroughly recommend Otter for scribing your podcast and to text!You are listening to Danny, on WHAT : DE HEK podcast. This is the place where I share my experience, knowledge and skills.Good afternoon. Good evening, or Good morning. I'm Danny de Hek. As my introduction said, I just wanted to do a hate word just when you use just, it's not just I want to give you a podcast about change in the things that you kind of need to do in your business at the moment to be a strong player. So recording this on my YouTube channel so you can actually see me and I can talk to you, which is really cool. And I just wanted to show you some of the things that I've been working on lately that really have had a lot of change.As many of you may know, I actually have a business networking company called elite six and I've been doing elite for about eight years, and I bought it as a franchise,and I dissolved the franchise, and now I run all the meetings myself. And I'm like the connector guy that gets everyone together. And that's why I call myself a connector. So if you even need to know anyone, and you're looking for someone who does this on the guy that you can ring, and I will point you in the right direction.So the unique point of difference with elite six is that we are not a referral network. We have got business networking in the back, we are a hub of like minded business people, they get together and really help each other in business. So a lot of people go to me I never get any business as such, well no one really buys my product or service when I come along to elite six. However, the information that they learn from ELITE : SIX and we offer people in the marketing is really a strengthIt's like having a business community around you that really cares about your business. So that's what I do. So over lockdown with COVID-19, we were running up to 15 zoom meetings a week. And then we went down to about eight. And then this morning, we run about five zoom meetings. And we also run one face to face meeting. But a lot of the correspondence that goes on with my members throughout the week, via emails,and also lots of catch up phone calls to see how people are going. So it's a really nice organisation. I'm really proud to say that it's what's mine. And also, I run it myself as I, and I've got some great people around me, which is awesome. So anyway, this morning, I ran a zoom meeting, and we normally have anywhere from eight to nine people. This morning, no one or one person loyal David Clarkson. He turned up, but that was it. And I thought, the timing really when things happen.Like that, I thought to myself, it's a sign telling me things are listen to the podcast at podcast.dehek.com
