It’s been a long time since I’ve written a journal and the year is already coming to a close. A lot has happened since July. We’ve been busy doing tapings for the television launch next year, January 2007. Actually we were supposed to launch in September but there was little time to prepare the shows and everyone was rushed and stressed out, so we pushed it back to January. I thought this was a good idea so that we could spend more time on making the shows good.

During the end of September we did a Greater Good Anniversary party at Pearl at Ala Moana Shopping Center. That was a blast. We had approximately 300 people there. The food was great and all of the drinks were very tasty. We had a chance to preview the food and drink the night before at the Hawaii Business Magazine’s Fittest CEO event. Thank goodness we had a chance to go the night before our party because during the party there was no time to enjoy the food and beverages. There were so many things to take care of to make sure that the party operated smoothly. Thank goodness to Hawaii Pacific Entertainment and Lincoln Jacobe who helped with the planning and operations of the party. Without them, I think my stress level would have been much greater. Overall, I thought the party was great and I couldn’t have asked for a better event! It would be awesome to do something like this annually.

Journal July 31, 2006

I guess I’ll be making it a quarterly journal. Last time I wrote I talked about turning 32. This time the celebration was because Evan and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. Wow, time sure flies.

So far a lot has happened. Evan shared some of what was going on… but I’ll add my perspective as sometimes it’s quite different being a female and also his partner and wife! So one of our big moments was both of us winning the 40 under 40 for Pacific Business News. What an honor that was. I was hoping that both of us would be recognized, but wasn’t sure because of our overlap in the many things that we’ve done together. However, although we’ve worked with the same company a few times, our roles and responsibilities were always different and our accomplishments within the companies were different. It’s funny how people will just see it as one. I guess when you get married, you truly are one, especially if you do things together.
I was having lunch with my mom the other day and I mentioned to her that my biggest challenge in my career is not moving up or doing things, but it was being an individual. Funny how Evan and I were both listed individually for the 40 under 40, yet many people think that we won as a couple. Yet when we tell them that it was an individual accomplishment, people seem surprised. Hmm, surprised because I won or because Evan won????

  Lots to Celebrate

Filed under: Kari's Journal — admin - March 22, 2006 @ 3:07 am

Wow! The weather has been unbelievable. It has been raining and raining and raining. I don’t remember one day in the past couple weeks that it didn’t rain at all. The kids at school had so much pent up energy because they couldn’t go out for recess and release their energy and Buddy’s class also had a lot of pent up energy. It’s so funny how rain does this to kids. The bad weather has been a bummer for me because Kolton was supposed to be taking his pictures for his 1st birthday, but with the rain it’s been impossible. Whenever we do take the pictures I hope that the artist is able to finish it in time for his party.
Speaking of birthdays, I just turned 32! I had a great birthday as always with my family. Evan spoils me all kinds of things. I am not into spending a lot of money, I just like a lot of time spent on doing or receiving thoughtful things. We went to Cirque Hawaii at the Waikiki 3 Theatres and it was an incredible production. I would highly recommend it for the locals or visitors. Evan and I agree that it was the best show we’ve seen in Hawaii so far. If you’re thinking about going to see it, don’t order your tickets online, do it over the phone. Evan saved $100 or maybe more. I don’t know why the price list on the website is so high, but when he called, the tickets were half of what it showed on the website. Kind of weird…but, a highly recommended show for everyone!
So we’ve had many interviews since the last time I journaled. Many, many, many incredible people. (more…)

  Evan returns

Filed under: Kari's Journal — admin - March 6, 2006 @ 3:29 am

Evan returned on Saturday, early morning. Our house was full of excitement for his return. Kolton was up at 6:00 am as usual, so after his feeding I woke up and tried to do any last minute things necessary before Evan got home. I wanted to make sure things were done when he was away so that he didn’t think that I was just sitting around watching TV or relaxing. The weird thing is that while he was gone on this trip I told myself that I would try and find some relaxation time, but no fail, it didn’t happen. Most of the nights I was up till midnight working on a list of TO DO things I made myself. I accomplished most of it, just two things was not checked off – scrap booking and figuring out Print Shop Pro. I will need to make time to do those things eventually. And as I mentioned about needing to do so much to pack Evan before he left, now it’s the unpacking. Most of it is done; I finished all of the laundry at least today. Now it’s just the bits and pieces that need to be organized and put away.

  Kari’s first journal

Filed under: Kari's Journal — admin - February 23, 2006 @ 3:52 am

Evan left for the Philippines today. There was a build up of stress prior to him leaving because there was so much to do. A lot of work to cram in before he left so that things wouldn’t just be in limbo. My goal was to finish things that I might have questions on prior to him leaving. This is the first time that I have to put together an order for Bubble Tea Supply and manage all facets of it. It was a lot of stress because it wasn’t just an order, it was a CONTAINER! Evan is the type of person that just does things but doesn’t necessarily document it to pass on to the next person, so learning the process from him was slow for me. Every step that he told me was written down in detail so that no mistakes were made. This took a lot of patience from Evan also because I had so many questions, even dumb questions, just so that I could understand why things were done a certain way. Sometimes I feel like I just have to question why things are done, otherwise if I think it’s a waste of time I won’t do it. Ever feel like that? Well, at least I now understand it all and have notes for the next time.
