I  am new to Fab. @ 40. I had connected with a women, financial planner who had some suggestions for making money on-line in the in-between tough times. Not sure how to reconnect with her and having a hard time finding her. She was a or is a savy African American women. How do I re-connect???

And, I did some searches, lot’s, on this topic and there seem to be a Billion or more. But....it’s hard to navigate the scamer/waste of time ad.s from something that is ligit. Any help or pointers from you women out in the community, looking for something I can do at home a couple of hours a day or more while I re-build my business after recently moving.

    • Oh, gosh I just realize you‘re in Wailea. I’m in Makawao.

      I left a response on your question about the website womenforhire.com. I’m certain they are legitimate.

      If I can help, message me and maybe I can ask around as well. I know how tight Hawaii is right now. New layoffs at Maui Land and Pine this week! The job market will be saturated with applicants.

    • When I responding I also realized you are in MAUI!. Amazing very small world. Just made the full-time move form N. California- had my business full-on and great there. Nutritional consulting, yoga, and raw food chef. I would lecture for Whole Foods and draw alot of client from there. Also, had a well established rep. in the community. I bought three condo’s here in 2004 and wow has the market come down.
      So...I decided to move here full-time to make sure these “babies” were taken care of. But, wow...I have had to really lower rents. I have never seen Muai like this in the past 18 years or so since comming to island. Use to life here full-time back in the early 90’s.
      Good to connect!

    • You know, we‘re getting a Whole Foods Market here. It’s in Maui Mall over by Longs. Where Star Market used to be. It was supposed to open in October but you know how Island time works! There are two stores in Honolulu, however.

      Down to Earth closed upcountry but the one in Kahului is still open.

      Raw food chef, I think there’s really work to be had in that area. What about a class at MCC through Vitec?

      Also, Hula Moons in Kihei I think has a raw food kitchen.

    • I Know the Whole Foods is opening; they seem to be expanding by leaps and bounds. It will be a great addition to the island. Although, I hate to see the small ma and Pa shops shut that have been here on island. Whole Foods is great for offering variety of products, lot’s which are not here in smaller shops - also more variety and selection in produce.

      What is vitex???

      On, this side I know my business should go well once it’s up and going.

    • Vitec is the continuing education through Maui Community College. There are lots of fun classes offered and sometimes they have cooking classes. Maybe some time you could teach one.

      What business are you starting on the island?

    • Nutritional and health consulting. I help people to cleanse, detoxify, loose weight and balance out their bods through nutrition and yoga. In the mainland I held weekly classes, did private consultations, lectured (-for Whole Foods and other organizations) and provided hands-on workshops. It seems like Maui could use some of this. I know a lot is happening here already in those areas..privately...but am looking for community based outlets; such as MCC or something on the this side besides the hotel or maybe in conjunction with the hotels as a private contractor. Any ideas.

      In the CA community we had a small mailer magazine that went out to the entire community and it made holding classes and getting word out on your business effective in developing a client base. It was a lot of fun.

      Thank-you for suggesting MCC. Does Vitec have a community magazine.

    • They do. I think it comes automatically to residents on the island. You could go to the administration office at MCC and pick one up or ask how to offer a class.

      Just had another thought. In Haiku, and I know this is away from you in Wailea, there’s The Studio Maui, a large facility for yoga, pilates, classes, workshops. They are very popular and have a good following. They have a website. I don’t know the exact link but you can google them.

      I’m having lunch with some girlfriends tomorrow. I’ll run it past them for other ideas, too.

      Do your condos have a community center with low rental fee for owners? Maybe you can do a seminar there.

      Send me a private message on this site so we can keep the ideas going for you and your start up. It’s easier than going to the blog page.
