When it comes to heartfelt passionate entrepreneurs who make a difference in the world, Norma Needham is up there on the list.

During her career, Norma and her partner Robert Vernon ran one of Australia’s most successful holden dealerships, winning a multitude of awards.



Transitioning into retirement, Norma now dedicates her time to her charity, Kids of Oz.

“Our focus at KidsOfOz, is primarily on the indigenous children of our community, whom in my experience need more of our attention in time, resources and emotional support.
These children, having faced the weight of judgement from society and ill-treatment from adult figures , don’t typically allow other people into their lives easily. But what these children deeply want and need is the love and affection that they deserve, and never got.
The same love and affection most of us fortunate Australians have been blessed with!”

Earlier in the year Norma invited us to stay at her luxurious mansion Longuevue. The idyllic setting for popular reality tv shows such as “the Bachelor” and “Beauty and the Geek”, Longuevue is an enchanted wonderland designed and built from the ground up by Norma herself.


Ask Norma:

1) What is one message you’d like to share with the world?
I think everyone should stop hurting each other and look for the good in people, not the bad. Treat others as you would want to be treated. Show love, respect and understanding. Appreciate every day, keep God in your heart and show thanks for what you have and where you are at.

2) What’s another message you’d like to share?
Love yourself, believe in yourself, strive for excellence in everything you do. Never say "no", because there is always a door, and don't miss out on opportunities that come your way. "If you wait too long you will miss the bus." It is better to have tried and failed than to look back and say, "what if". Don't forget, what you think is what you get.

3) What’s one tip that would help someone with life’s challenges?
You must release all your painful memories and live in the now. Have the passion and the determination to never give up. Always invest in yourself and learn, learn, learn.
