When you least expect it, opportunity knocks. We’re in Hawaii a couple of weeks ago on our honeymoon and we always love shopping at a Martin & MacArthur store. They’ve been around for over 50 years. We walked into their International Marketplace store in Honolulu on Sunday. Started a conversation with the Store Manager about their amazing Koa wood products and wood carvings. One thing leads to another, I mentioned I carved wood as well. He asked for an email with more information, next thing I know the email is forwarded to the CEO. The next day at lunch I get a call from the CEO. Now I have an opportunity to be a featured artist in their 12 stores on four islands.
I’ve wanted to have my work shown in Hawaii for a very long time. I came with zero intention, the conversation just flowed, the opportunity just appeared. It was genuine, authentic, nothing forced.
My first shipment is being packed up as we speak. Aloha.
