Business in Hawaii - Diving with Wounded Warriors

Aloha!!

 

What a wet weekend in Hawaii this is turning out to be. 

 

The wet weather is a nice segue to this week's broadcast of Business in Hawaii with Reg Baker.

Ocean Legends is an International Diving Academy that offers Recreational, Commercial and underwater Movie Production training and certifications. Hear their amazing story in this week's broadcast.

Here is the link:  https://youtu.be/nyhcdkCOB_4?t=25

I also have had a few articles recently published in the Hawaii Business Magazine.  I addressed lessons learned from the Uber fiasco, when and how to get a bank loan and my report from Washington DC concerning the national SBA Board meeting on Regulatory Fairness I attended.  Here is the link if interested -   http://www.hawaiibusiness.com/topics/small-business/

Business in Hawaii with Reg Baker - East Oahu Chamber of Commerce is Open for Business!

Aloha –

 

East Oahu Chamber is now open for business but not entirely new to the area.

 

Formerly known as the Hawaii Kai Chamber they have greatly expanded their footprint and has big plans.

 

Listen to how these two very motivated ladies will make the East Oahu Chamber a household name.  Great lessons here on getting the word out and reinventing yourself when needed.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Reg Baker appointed to Hawaii Small Business Regulatory Review Board

Good Morning!

 

I wanted to share some exciting information with you. 

 

Governor Ige has appointed me to the Hawaii Small Business Review Board.  Please see attached appointment letter.

 

This state of Hawaii appointment, combined with my role on the federal SBA Regulatory Fairness Board will be powerful and allow me to work more effectively at helping small businesses with regulatory challenges at both the state and federal levels.

 

I am very excited about this new opportunity!

Aloha,

 

RB

Business in Hawaii - Quarterly Commentary

Aloha!

 

What a fast-paced information packed session this was!

 

We touched on what a forensic audit is and why we need one for the Rail.  And the sooner the better!!  Otherwise we will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again.  

 

Also discussed the foreign bank account reporting deadline (many need to file and don't even know it), the dreamer fiasco, infrastructure projects and the labor shortage (the last three are all related).

 

And the link is - https://youtu.be/8KGl4whCr9g?t=27
