Thinking about moving to Hawaii? Wonderful! It’s a beautiful place! You probably already know about some of the risks and downsides of living in Hawaii, from the high cost of living to moving far away from friends and family. But there is much, much more to learn before taking the big leap. And while you may be able to piece together all of the knowledge you need on your own, there is a much easier way. And that is Peter Kay’s Islander Ohana.
I have been watching Peter’s YouTube videos about Hawaii for several years. At first, sporadically. I was on the email list, but I didn’t watch most of the videos, because it was just kind of a novelty at first. I enjoyed watching this congenial white-haired man drive his convertible around Oahu talking about the weather and what-not, but it was no big deal, just another YouTuber having fun, I thought.
But the more I listened, the more I came to understand that he really knows his stuff, and I thought, maybe this guy actually has a few nuggets of wisdom. And before long it seemed to become essential viewing. When I learned about the Islander Ohana, I thought, ok, this is actually a pretty great opportunity to really dig in and learn about Hawaii. Even then I didn’t understand what I was getting myself into.
The information that Peter imparts in his videos and in the cohort meetings is literally priceless. He covers nearly everything imaginable, and if he doesn’t cover it in a video, he’ll happily answer any questions you may have.
And possibly the best part is that you get to mingle with other people who are trying to do the same thing you are doing… Moving to paradise! The sharing of knowledge, swapping stories, and learning from what others did right (or wrong) is invaluable. I genuinely want to meet and hang out with everyone from my cohort, or even the other cohorts.
If you want to become a nurse, you should go to nursing school. If you want to get married, you should speak with a counselor. If you want to learn martial arts, you should join a dojo. And if you want to move to Hawaii, you should absolutely join the Islander Ohana.
