About The Good P.A
Why we do what we do | Who we are | What's important to us
We’re here for you and your business. We love what we do – time saving office admin & beautiful design for your business. It’s what we’re great at. You go be great at what you do and we will support your business dreams – from our office here in Te Awamutu.
We started our journey in April 2015 when Chantelle Good (get the bizo name?) noticed business owners running around with their hands in the air, screaming… No, not really, but she swears they were on the inside! Maybe you’ve forgotten that ‘ideal’ business you imagined when you started and need some time back to work on it again.
We’re here for you. We too are a local business, employing local people, supporting our community and wanting to work with YOU! Because if you’re reading this and you’re wondering how we can help you, give us a call, an email, even a text. Let’s meet up to see if we can be your gift of time. And shout you that coffee | hot choco | turmeric latte – whatever floats your boat.
We're NZ based Virtual Assistants and Designers.
'Positive in Business'
We're here to make a positive impact on businesses throughout the Waikato, including our own.
In the Community
People are important to us. Chantelle didn't get into business to make money and go home. She got into business to employ locals, give back, support her family and be an influencer of what TRUE good business should be about. People are IMPORTANT.
"If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got!"
So change it up says Chantelle
St John New Zealand
We make a regular monthly donation to St John New Zealand. St John completes many different services throughout New Zealand - their best known one would be managing our ambulance service.
Again close to our heart - Chantelle has been for a few ambulance rides in her lifetime. Chantelle also donates to St John's on a personal basis and highly recommends signing your family up for a membership. It covers the cost of any ambulance rides you may need and supports St John.
We would hate to think where we would be without them.
If you too would like to make a donation you can do so here https://www.stjohn.org.nz/
SPCA New Zealand
We make a regular monthly donation to SPCA New Zealand. SPCA helps protect over 45,000 animals in New Zealand every year. Animals who are sick, injured, abused or simply abandoned.
SPCA receives almost no government funding, everything they do relies on community support and donation. Together, we help the animals that so desperately need it, and bring justice to those who have failed these innocent animals.
If you too would like to make a donation you can do so here https://www.spca.nz/
We love being a part of this community and for one day every year, we close our doors, and gift our time to a local organisation or charity where we think we can help the most!
There is an application process and in March each year we start the process again where local organisations can fill out our application form and wait to hear who receives our time for the day.
If you are a local Waikato Charity/Not for Profit or other organisation and you would like to sign up please fill out our form.

We're not only a financial member, Chantelle is the Chair on the Te Awamutu Chamber of Commerce.
I started The Good P.A in April 2015 when realising my passion for business. I love process, being organised, people and business in general. Everything about business excites me - marketing, financials (I do love numbers), hiring staff.
"If you want to work with a business that wants to help you continue to grow the success of your business - that's us! I love seeing our clients happy in their businesses."
Community "I am the Chair on the Te Awamutu Chamber of Commerce."

Personally "I LOVE my big extended family who live around the Waikato, I live in Te Awamutu with my son and partner.
