Located in beautiful Kaiwiki, Moku ʻo Keawe, interviewing the success story of Leimomi Wheeler
Mahalo nui ʻŌiwi TV for coming to our lovely plantation-style hale in Kaiwiki. As we sit comfortably on these cozy Adirondack chairs, enjoying ʻono māmaki, mint, lemongrass tea grown in our organic malā, honored to have all of you here on this lovely sunny day sharing this stunning 360 degree view of Hilo One, Puna, tūtū Pele, Mauna Loa and Mauna A Wākea. We are so blessed, mahalo nā akua!
We moved to this 20-acre property early this year in which my dream has been fulfilled to restore this ʻāina to this flourishing native Hawaiian forest and the kahawai neighboring this ʻāina. Lots of aloha has been given back to this ʻāina from our communities and ʻohana: many hands make light work. Our peaceful, beautiful, and spacious plantation-style hale with Tesla solar throughout our ʻāina houses all of us, including my mom…love seeing her smile everyday as her dream has been fulfilled – she’s back home in Hawaiʻi. Wonderful to also host ‘ohana in our lovely hale moe and supply them with ‘ono mea ‘ai from our māla. Learning from Master Cho with Korean Natural farming principles on our ʻāina fills me with joy to teach and feed our lā hui. Its really nice to be living sustʻāinably everyday, mahalo nā akua.
Grateful to continue being creative and working leisurely from my beautiful hale— choosing work kuleana that is an alignment within, mahalo nunui! Stoked that our Nohopapa Hawai’i ceded lands kuleana and collaboration with OHA (Office of Hawaiian Affairs) has blossomed into more Esri GIS mapping and spatial analytics with other Native Hawaiian agencies and communities. A true honor to contribute as an GIS expert.
How did I become successful?
Being of service to our lā hui: success IS service.
Continuous and consistent personal development…mahalo piha MKMMA…built a paʻa and positive mental foundation. Plus learning and applying MLM skills…mahalo NUI Go90Grow. Soul grateful everyday to be a professional in Network Marketing which helps us give back to our lā hui!!
Through liberty and creative expression, grateful to be able to give back to my community in donating to those aloha ‘āina hui’s that give back to our communities everyday.
Would it be okay if we did some hana to give back to our ʻāina?
