Morwenna A. Petaia met me on skype, from across the pond, to talk about her experiences as the owner of Measina Treasures of Samoa in Melbourne, Australia.
Measina Treasures of Samoa does three things:
1) Sell products, made by Samoans from all over the world;
2) Blog about all things that are Samoa;
3) Share educational programs through the Samoan culture.
Morwenna is a talented Samoan business owner, wife, and mother. Our Samoan culture is the basis of her business, and the bridge for Samoans in the diaspora to connect with Samoa. In today's world, we import a lot of non-pacific goods into the Pacific Islands. Refreshingly, Measina Treasures of Samoa helps us share Samoan made products with the rest of the world. As a result, this business has its reach into the United States.
We also discussed the importance of developing a business community, and the impact of economic power. Please check out our talk.
