Pua Pakele & Cabot graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder, right in the middle of the global financial crisis. Finding a job as a new graduate was non-trivial and she decided to participate in Next Step Connections‘ internship program in China.
She moved back to her home state of Hawaii, got an MBA and is now a Co-Owner of Best Life Ever…a business that helps entrepreneurs live a better, more balanced life.
Born out of their own experiences at big companies, Pua and her partner Kimi started out helping corporate employees via targeted Health and Wellness training. However, they realized that small business owners and entrepreneurs were also suffering from a lot of stress, a lack of sleep and other issues that were seriously lowering their enjoyment of life.
Feeling a closer connection to entrepreneurs, they set out to build tools for them that would help them scale their businesses without also having to seriously scale up their time. They also built a podcast that focuses on getting business owners to educate others on how they can live their best life ever.
She and I had a great conversation.
