The Big Island Internet Society Meet Up Today

Just wanted to say thanks to the 15 – 20 folks that showed up today for the Big Island meet and greet at Big Island Pizza.

It was a great meet up once again and we were fortunate to have Grif Frost speak to us today about “LQ – Life Quality”.

Grif Frost talking about "LQ - Life Quality"

Grif’s a well known businessman throughout the world and has settled into a comfortable lifestyle here on the Big Island.

I appreciated listening to his words of wisdom and the key words that I took away from his talk today was to have a good life quality, you must think about the following things in the following priority:

  1. Health – You must be healthy to do anything in general
  2. Ohana – Take care of the Ohana and those around you
  3. Business – Worry about the other things above but do realize you need to bring in money to make ends meet.

Just wanted to say thanks again to Larry Czerwonka for organizing this little hui that we have going on.  I just realized this was our 6th meeting that we have had so far.
