MBB cares about event quality and have invited an impressive list of high quality guest speakers. These experts are graciously donating their time and sharing their knowledge with us in hopes that our community can apply the information to our real life business experiences and eventually grow and prosper.

The momentum of planning and preparation continues to build, attracting attendees to collaborate with private organization and local government. It seems like everyone wants to play a part in this historic event!

Growth and prosperity abound.

RoadRunner Mobile 4G Works For Me


I have been blogging since 2006 and most of the time I do my blogging at home.  This past year, I had felt the need to be more mobile and to be able to blog in other places aside from my house where I can hook my laptop with our wireless connection.  I thought if trying out some of the Hot Spots – coffee shops and restaurants that give out free Wifi.  Problem is there is a catch to that.  It’s just polite to buy something from them when I use their Wifi and it’s polite to not use up the table for hours and hours if I only bought a cup of coffee.  So I still did not get into the habit of blogging outside of our home.

Well, last night I was invited to attend the official launching of the RoadRunner Mobile.  It was held at Mala Restaurant in Wailea. We were given a chance to try out this mobile device using 4G technology and I tell you, I was impressed.  I thought to my self: THIS WORKS FOR ME!

And so sometime this week I will be talking to a RoadRunner Mobile representative on how I can sign up for this service. Now, you might think that this is a paid post.  Not really.  I was not paid to say nice things about RoadRunner Mobile.  To disclose, I was invited to the launching and so with that came free food, free drinks, free entertainment – but that’s it.  No hidden fees to promote their services.

Since I am a blogger, and I love sharing good things about Maui, I thought I’d post some photos during the launching.  It was held at Marriott Wailea with an incredibly beautiful location.  The launching started at 5:30PM which allowed us to view the sunset from Mala’s Lania. Oh so beautiful – here’s one of the many photos I took:


It was a cocktail party and the heavy pupus they served were so “ono”! Delicious to the max! I ate a lot of shirmps, crab cakes, and even oysters! Below are some some of the yummy food they served:





I will share more about the entertainment on the part 2 of this post where I’d show a video clip of Willie K’s performance.  In the meantime, I encourage you to hop on to “We Are That Family” blog to see the many links available there.  Those links will lead you to tips and sharing of what works with bloggers from all over the world. Have fun!

Maui Sunset







A few words…

I interrupt my bloggy break to share with you this Maui Sunset from yesterday.  I thought I’d use these for  “Wordless Wednesday” post, but I decided that this is also good “Works For Me Wednesday” post.  When life is hectic and it seems like it’s beyond busy, it’s good to “take a break from something thats keeping you busy” and “go enjoy the beauty of nature” – in my case: the sunset. For more  Wordless Wednesday tips, visit Kristen’s blog “We are That Family”.
