Legitimate Home Business Opportunities in Hawaii?

working-hawaii-home-businessIf you “stay Hawaii” you have probably wondered if you might work at home in your living room on a notebook computer, drinking lattes all day instead of slugging it out in massive traffic jams trying to get into town or wherever you’re going during rush hours.

There are many people I know in Hawaii that aren’t really ‘making it’ like they want to and they figure a work at home business is what they need. It’d be the ultimate, right? Living in Hawaii and working from your lanai on a hammock.

One of the business writers I read a lot of is Randy Duermyer over at Home Business at About.com. He’s got a level-head and doesn’t hype what he’s talking about. His advice is from the heart and he’s not selling any junk. He gives great advice for the masses and I’ve picked up a lot of tips and he’s guided me in the right direction more than a few times. I highly recommend his site as a place you can devour many hours of starting a business type articles – and home business articles.

Today in his newsletter he tackled a question from one of his readers:

Do you put out a list of legitimate work at home business?

I like Randy’s no-hype style – I think you will too.

In my opinion – and this jives with Randy’s home based business opps article – the only home business opportunity worth pursuing is the one you create yourself. You can copy what others are doing – but, you need to start your own business. Part of the home business dream is that you are in charge of what you do each day.

You decide. You’re not getting fed instructions by phone, skype or email about what your tasks are for the day – you’re brainstorming your tasks and focusing on exactly what will grow your business that day.

Get started on something of your OWN today. It is not that difficult – not as much as living in Hawaii and working for someone else. Working when they want… Working on what they want

Break free Hawaii – !

About the Author:

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

    May I ask how you get your first job? I’m an English major and I’m not confident that a company will be able to sponsor me! :( I really want to go there

      Sure! I’ve lived here since the 80s and have had a “real job” for all of 9 months, i.e. never had job. I made my own job. That said, teachers are in demand here though so you may want to find schools looking for English majors.

      Honolulu has a pretty good public bus system including a “HandiVan” which is for handicapped. I would suggest you research that to see if they will specifically accommodate your child.

    Hi love how you wrote from your heart!
    Hawaii is and will always be a dream for both my hubby and myself….we are in our 40’s, it is just us and our 16 yr old son….we never thought about living in Hawaii until 5 yrs ago…When we had a terrible auto accident that nearly took our lives…it made both of us disabled for life and in massive chronic pain…we live to just take pain meds to keep us going…but we have to sacrifice our bodies for these corrupt drugs that are suppose to aid our bodies to make life more bareable….but they don’t even help kill the pain…and I refuse to go any higher…These meds have now made us addicted them…and they are our lives…we are unfixable….according to the specialists we have seen…many many specialists….we live in the cold of canada…ontario.

    We have been happily married for 18yrs this coming August 2016….he is my life…my soul mate. ..As I him….This cold makes us hurt 200 times more then anyone can understand…we both cry ourselves to sleep…wishing the person that hurt us could feel the pain we must live with….

    The auto insurances no fault systems don’t go there….they only help the insurance company not the victim….we have list so much…but we have remained strong….

    Every time we see people moving to Hawaii or the other islands…we just think how lucky they are….

    We could never afford to live in these beautiful scenic areas…so when we see people writing articles with good and bad…showing the real truths it is so wonderful….

    Please keep the good work up…In educating people…so they just don’t jump in and not understand what it is really about….

    Maybe just someday we will be able to just visit and experience what you and others have. It is a dream of dreams I would like to experience….maybe someday I will win just a few dollars to let us have that honeymoon we never had….I’d love to fish, which I haven’t since this accident….I’d love to be able to relax and not worry for once…I’d love my pain to go away for just a bit to be able to see the beauty…to fell the warmth on my face and bad hip…to smell the fresh scents that come with Hawaii….

    You are truly on lucky man….and one lucky family…

    Take care.

    Thanks for the kind words, Vern. Yep, I’d love to live in Hawaii and sit on the lanai sipping a cold tropical drink! Real estate in Hawaii is a bit too rich for my blood though so it will have to wait awhile, unless I can strike it rich with one of those Google work at home scams – uh, “opportunities”!
