Hell For Leather

Hell For Leather is the unique story of one woman’s determination to save her business. Karroll Brent-Edmondson pulls out all the stops, does battle with creditors, keeps the tax department at bay and fights to hold on to a skeleton staff. Following a tough childhood and turbulent adolescence, Karroll established a successful business manufacturing affordable school shoes.

As her business grew so did her personal success and profile in the community and in 1995 Karroll was named Maori Businesswoman of the Year. However, the consequences of market deregulation, coinciding with a run of manufacturing problems put her business into a downward spiral. Told with passion and humour, Hell For Leather gives remarkable insight into the human drama of business failure and one woman’s determination not to let it beat her. Karroll died in 2006.
