Time Brings Changes and Familiarity
This year has been one of the best for me financially because of a marketing technique that I learned from Ewen Chia. Usually I can barely break even with my finances, but since this year I had an excess of funds, I decided that I should reward myself for all of my hard work. It’s been a long time since I’ve given myself a reward. I think the last time I did it, I was still wearing an Afro an bell bottoms. Back then, I took a trip to Hawaii and had a lot of fun memories. I decided it would be cool to do the same thing again.
I booked a month long trip to Hawaii at the same hotel that I stayed at many years ago. By coincidence, I was actually given the exact same room that I stayed in before. None of the hotel staff that I saw before were working there, which was a shame. I went to some of the locations that I saw on my previous trip, and there was one man who recognized me. He owned his own shop where he sold little hand carved statues of hula girls, and I had bought one from him long ago.
The man even remembered my name, and asked me if i still had the statue that I bought from him. We talked about how old we both had gotten and about our lives. I invited him to have dinner with me and he agreed. While at dinner, I saw another person who remember me. There was a young woman who used to be a waitress at the restaurant that were we ate. She became much older, and became the owner of that restaurant. She was pretty ambitious when she was young, so it would make sense that she would be the owner now.
