What would you be doing if you weren’t working at INPAC?

I fell in love with Japan when I visited in 2014. If I weren’t working for INPAC, I’d love to spend most of my time there. However, if I wasn’t working at INPAC, I’m sure my life would be mundane.

I love helping our clients pursue their dreams. The only reason why I wouldn’t be at INPAC would be if I chose to retire. I’m a workaholic, though, so I know I’ll always work in some capacity.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice I ever received was from a life coach who is now one of my great friends: “Life is like a wheel of balance — each spoke represents physical, spiritual, financial, family and community balance.”

Life can be busy. It’s so easy to get caught up on just one aspect of life and let the others suffer or fall short. Trying to create a balanced wheel in all areas of life can help make life more fulfilling. However, creating that balance is easier said than done.

Realizing that everyone is human helped the entire INPAC ohana become better planners because it’s not always about the numbers — it’s about our clients’ wheels and how we can make the most out of each spoke.

Why do you do what you do?

I got familiar with the concept of “being in business” while growing up in the family fish business on Kauai. Only now have I really come to understand the true meaning of being in a business that is worth being in. There is something so fulfilling about designing wealth plans that can help our clients enjoy every stage of life.

Wealth Advisor

Why do you do what you do?

In 2010, my mom suffered a debilitating stroke. Faced with costly caregiving expenses and with little financial resources available, I saw my parents’ quality of life decline.

Determined to help them, I pursued a career in wealth advising. I strive to not only be a valuable resource, but also a trusted advisor who helps people plan for their future to help them avoid the same financial fate as my parents.

What are you most grateful for in your life?

Every day is a gift. I am truly thankful for everything in my life — from my wonderful wife, Mayo, and my children, Ai and Riku — to good health, great relationships and the opportunity to make a tremendous difference in people’s lives.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

A baseball coach once told me “not to have any regrets”. That is something that I took to heart and still live by to this day. To me, having no regrets means giving 100 percent effort, always being prepared and doing my absolute best every day.

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

What I love most about INPAC is the small, close-knit family culture within the office. Everyone works well together, and we all know that each and every one of us has an impact on our clients’ lives.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about having new experiences and constantly learning more about myself. Every year, I travel with my family to different places around the world to experience new cultures and cuisine.

Why do you do what you do?

I love helping people. As Zig Ziglar once said, “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” It’s amazing to me that I get to help people pursue their financial goals, and along the way, I get to raise a family and build a spectacular life and network in Hawaii.

Wealth Advisor/Client Concierge

Why do I do what I do?

Having 10+ years’ experience in the banking industry, I have been fortunate enough to meet and help many people from all stages of life with their financial goals. Through this experience I realized one important thing was missing which was a “plan” for our clients.  At the bank I was able to help people by offering products and services that could benefit them however, I realized we could be of much greater service to our clients by building off of a solid foundation of their dreams, goals, and desires which is a “Financial Plan”.

I wanted to shift my practice to helping our clients more holistically, and at INPAC that’s exactly what we do! We help design these plans for every single one of our clients, and the best part at no cost to them!

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

I love the team. We are all very supportive of each other and work hard to help our clients pursue their goals. We are like a family.

What are you most passionate about?

I'm passionate about helping others. Whether it's helping people pursue their financial goals, or simply making someone smile and making their day brighter.

Wealth Advisor

Why do you do what you do?

I had a great career at Hawaiian Electric Company. When I retired at 55, I did some soul searching to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I discovered early on that I had a servant heart. Working at INPAC Wealth Solutions provides me with the venue to fulfill my need to help others. Financial stability is very important for everyone to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

What are you most grateful for in your life?

I am most grateful for my family. Even when I have a tough day at work, seeing my family relieves me of the stress that I felt.

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

I am the newbie at INPAC. The team here is very helpful and willing to teach me. Furthermore, the skills and experiences that I gained from my previous career enables me to contribute to this business. There is great excitement for the future of this practice.

Registered Representative

Why do you do what you do?

I have always wanted to help others and make a positive and significant difference in their lives. This was something I pursued with a passion for my entire career as an insurance and financial services professional. 36 years later, I still find it extremely rewarding and fulfilling to help people prepare and protect themselves from life's uncertainties, and to help them achieve financial security and financial success. This is definitely something I continue to enjoy doing each day as an INPAC financial advisor!

What are you passionate about?

I am very passionate about helping people help themselves. We all have such amazing potential to achieve so many great things. Negative thoughts, fears, and worry can have devastating effects on our psyche and ultimately, our destiny. I know how it feels to be afraid, worried, and alone. I also know how good if feels to have support, guidance, advice, and mentorship. I was very fortunate to have had the help and support of wonderful people at the times in my life when I needed it the most. It is my greatest passion to pay this precious gift forward and help as many as I can, whether it be through my work as a financial advisor, as a volunteer for charities or youth sports, or simply as a friend.

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

Every single team member at INPAC has a very sincere and deep desire to positively impact and truly make a difference in our client's lives. We all do our absolute best to help our clients achieve financial success and help them to be able to live their dreams. I love being with a firm that helps make people's dreams come true!

What do you feel most grateful for in life?

I feel grateful for everything: my health, my home and to be a part of a wonderful team where we all support one another and want to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

What are you most grateful for in your life?

I was adopted from Japan as a baby, so I am most grateful for the life I have been able to live. While it was not always without hardships, I am still certain that I have had more opportunities and freedoms than I would have had otherwise.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about video games! The people I have met and the friends I have made through playing video games have been some of the longest and closest relationships of mine. From playing, to watching professional players and tournaments, to sharing my game play online with others… many aspects of the video game community keep me hooked.

What would you be doing if you weren't at INPAC?

Honestly, I'd just be gaming. I'm grateful that INPAC has given me a chance to be a part of this awesome team!

What would you be doing if you weren't working at INPAC?

If I was not working at INPAC, I would more than likely be volunteering in some capacity. Over the past several years, I have taken on various volunteer roles in our local  schools, which led to being President of my daughter's school Parent Teach Association (PTA) for the past two years. I also have been volunteering at my church for over five years. I have a servant's heart and desire to give back to my community as much as possible.

What are you most grateful for in your life?

I am most grateful for my family and friends. I have a wonderful husband of 17 years and two daughters, ages 13 and 10. My daughters keep me very busy with their active schedules, but what we enjoy the most is doing something together as a family. We were very fortunate to live in several different states and cities in the US and made lifelong friends in each of these places. I'm always grateful for a visit, phone call, or text that keeps me laughing and energized.

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

I love the teamwork at INPAC. Everyone is willing to take on new responsibility and help each other out. It is a great environment, and I am thankful I work here.
