Headed to [Re]Think Hawaii Conference, Nov 1-5th

I’ve been invited back to Hawaii on Nov for [Re]Think Hawaii summit in Honolulu, Oahu, speaking on the panel for the Social Media Business Summit. If you want to attend, use the discount code “jeremiah” and receive 35% off the week pass. The focus of the summit is to focus a week is about “connecting entrepreneurs and investors during a series of panels, lunches, excursions, dinners, cocktails and aloha style exchange of ideas and relationship building in Hawaii.”

In particular, I’m interested in exploring how social impacts the tourism industry in Hawaii, both from tourists sharing, making decisions, to the actual experience using mobile devices and digital capture devices during and after their experience. You too are encouraged to come, this event hosted by Christine Lu and others, will feature a wide variety of business topics focused around Hawaii, entrepreneurism, sustainability, and island culture.

I’ve an incredible affection for Hawaii, and have recently set a personal goal (called Operation Bluewater) to spend at least one month per year in Hawaii in a net positive experience. Personal goals are important to me, I’ve set some for my health, for my blog, for my career and a few for personal lifestyle. Net positive indicates that the overall experience isn’t a financial loss, but instead I’ll figure out how to conduct business in a profitable manner in Hawaii –or work remote with my existing responsibilities. This event aligns with my goals, as the conference organizers are paying for my travel and hotel costs.

I’m open to suggestions, proposals, and other ideas on how to achieve my goals but also encourage you to spark up your own personal goals –regardless of how wild they may seem. How do you decide, plan, and achieve your personal goals?

Disclosure: As a professional courtesy, [Re]Think Hawaii has invited me as a speaker and is covering my travel and expenses.

  1. Hi Jeremiah,

    It’s perhaps a bit esoteric but I’ve found Martha Beck’s new book, Steering by Starlight http://bit.ly/25VsfV provides a powerful and refreshing look at goal setting and accomplishment. It focuses on the issues of your subconscious, to show that will power isn’t often strong enough to let you accomplish your goals, and the underlying blocks of the mind may also prevent you from setting your goals high enough or in alignment with who you are. Beck is a life coach with a PhD from Harvard, so very interesting combo of perspective.


  2. Hey Jeremiah,

    I just registered last night! I am flying from Maui to Oahu and will attend Re-Think Hawaii for a day! (Nov. 4th and I’ll see you and learn from you 🙂

    About your personal goal – have you tried scuba diving yet (as part of Operation Bluewater?) I can hook you up with Mike on Maui – he’s a professional diving instructor and we might get you a lesson for free if we blog about it (I got that offer from him 🙂 Let me know if this interests you 🙂

  4. Good call on choosing to spend 1 month per year in Hawaii as a part of your “Operation Bluewater”. Hawaii is a great place to come and clear your head; crystal blue water, gorgeous jungle and mountain scenery, unique and laid-back culture… You just can’t beat it!
