It’s been a while…3 years to be exact since we last had a conversation on this Podcast about Life Off Grid and living a Sustainable life here in Hawai’i.

A lot has happened over the 3 years since our first podcast on Living Off Grid in Hawaii. Our last Podcast on the subject has been one of our most popular, most downloaded, and most frequently asked about. It has reached #1 and #2 on the Google Search Engine. If you are interested in listen to the complete “LIVING OFF GRID IN HAWAII” Podcast please click the link:

It’s been a long time coming for this NEW ADDITION of OFF GRID LIVING IN HAWAII. Wayde’s Book Cover LIFE OFF GRID interview in the November 2017 issue of Hawaii Business Magazine and his Ebook has been release. Wayde discusses living off grid in Hawai’i and how to live a sustainable and affordable lifestyle in a State where the cost of living is the highest in the nation! We all know Hawai’i is changing and we must change with it if we wish to stay here. It’s the only way to sustain and protect our family’s future here in Hawai’i. Wayde’s been very excited to share with all of us the future opportunities that will be available for sustainable living here on the Islands of Hawai’i.

LIVING OFF GRID IN HAWAII will guide you step by step on how to live off grid, live a sustainable lifestyle and lower your energy and food bills while leaving a smaller environmental footprint on planet Earth.

They say there is a price to pay for paradise. There doesn’t have to be, when you start taking responsibility for the choices you make. We CAN afford to continue living in paradise when we take back control of our lives, but we have to stop talking about it and start taking action!

LIFE OFF GRID is a big step for those wishing more control and freedom. For our species to sustain itself for generations to come, some of us must choose to lead the rest of us down a path of sustainable living. If we don’t…we simply won’t survive as a species.

Well, it’s come to this…Bruce & Wayde are talking BABIES!

Not that we want to, but because we just didn’t have anything to talk about this week and said…Hey…We hate babies anyways so lets do something we never did and talk about Baby Names, So yeah…We are talking baby names.

In all seriousness…If you plan on having a baby in the future and or about to have one lets not give that child some lame boring name like John…come up with something more original like Koa…There are an endless amount of beautiful Hawaiian names! If on the mainland your child will most likely have the most beautiful and original name in your area or town!

If you want to call your child James, John, Robert, Mary, Jennifer or Patricia you go ahead…why not…everyone else has those name…lol…Why would you want your child to stand out and have an original name like Kai, Leilani, Manoa or Kimeona.
