Today we’d like to introduce you to Cynthia Kaui.
Hi Cynthia, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I grew up with an entrepreneurial spirit, and I knew I wanted to live a life of impact and purpose. Fortunately, I was able to get to where I am today because of the people I knew and the doors that they opened for me. People always say that they want to be passionate about “what they do.” I propose that you need to be willing to fail and in that process, you develop a passion for what is actually important to you: your core values. My core values are Faith, Family, and Legacy. I view entrepreneurship as a tool to help me achieve the outcomes and the results that I want so that I can pursue my core values. By profession, I work in Marketing. But on the side, I am also a Digital Entrepreneur.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
To me, being an entrepreneur is being “a problem solver.” That being said, it has not been a smooth road. To name some of the struggles I faced along the way, I struggled with figuring out my purpose, I was so self-conscious about what people thought about me, I struggled with being a perfectionist, and I chased way too many rabbits at once.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a lifestyle blogger, a digital media content creator, and a social media influencer. What sets me apart from others and what I am most proud of is that I know my core values and the vision that I have for my life. I am empathetic to those that don’t know where to begin when they figure out their value system and how they want their life to look like. It’s easier said than done. In addition, when you figure out your values and the vision for your life, you living it out is another story. We are all hypocrites to some extent, but it’s about figuring out the gap between what is important to you and you actually living it out. I find it’s important for you to be solidified in your purpose, your values, and the vision you desire for your life. With my content, I aim to inspire and empower people to do the same.
Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
The best piece of advice I can give for finding a mentor is to seek out people who live the life you want. If you are going to pick anyone’s brain, you want to see if they have the fruit on the tree. Do they have the same core values as you? Do they have the same vision for their life as you? Do they have the same results and outcomes in life that you are aspiring to have? I found my mentors through people I was already connected with, so never underestimate the power of your current network. What I recommend for networking is: go on websites and apps like Eventbrite, MeetUp, Facebook, and Instagram and search for professional and social events. What’s worked well for me is: having a full calendar of events to go to. I also follow the people I meet and who I built a great rapport with on social media. I also ask to hang out 1:1 sometime after the event if I want to get to know them better on a deeper level.
