Podcast Show Notes: Have Aloha Will Travel EP29

This week, Cat and Kevin talk story with Meli James, co-founder of local entrepreneurial startup Mana Up Hawaiʻi.

On this week’s “Have Aloha Will Travel” podcast, Kevin and Cat talk story with Mana Up Hawaiʻi co-founder, Meli James, from much more than six feet away. 

In this episode, Meli speaks to the “Have Aloha Will Travel” crew about Mana Up’s mission, which is to provide mentoring opportunities to local small businesses as well as sell and highlight Hawaiʻi-made products on its website and storefront (2201 Kalākaua Ave., Space A110, Honolulu), which is now temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Visitors who love the Islands will want to check out Mana Up’s locally sourced care packages, which are filled with unique, artisan products that will bring Hawaiʻi to you.   

Cat also mentioned that on HAWAIʻI Magazine’s Facebook page we'd be doing our first-ever sunset pau hana video. Although you might have missed it live, it did go up as a recording, and you can find that here
