We had the good fortune of connecting with Cynthia Kaui and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cynthia, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want my legacy to be defined by the amount of lives I impacted. My legacy will reflect that I lived a life of contribution, not consumption. I want people to remember me for what I stood for and what I did for people and their families. I want to be remembered as someone who served and loved people. I believe that creating a legacy is building something that lasts forever. For my own family legacy, I am creating a business asset to pass down to my children, so that we can provide hope for families financially. I am inspiring people to achieve their dreams for their families and offer a way to change their situation. This is how I define a life of significance. Today, a lot of people are struggling to find their purpose, but when you figure out what kind of outcomes you want, what kind of legacy you want to leave behind, and what kind of person you want to be remembered for, you will find your purpose and so much more.

What should our readers know about your business?
I believe that it is about “who you know” more than “what you know.” I was introduced to the concept of developing business assets through some high school friends. They opened the door to my business coaches and mentors, and I credit them for getting me to where I am today business-wise. I am most proud of the intangibles I have gained from building my business, which is the person I have becoming and the legacy I am creating. I am most excited for all the people I have yet to impact. I want to help them realize their full potential so that they can achieve their dreams. It has not been the easiest journey, but it’s been worth it. I overcame my challenges because of mentorship. Sometimes we get caught up in our emotions and it can cause us to make immature decisions. When you have someone who has a vested interest in you and can see what is above the horizon, it’s crucial to get perspective. More importantly, it should come from someone who has the life that you want to live. One of the lessons I have learned from being an entrepreneur was to become crystal clear with the life that I wanted to live and my core values. It is unorthodox, but I knew what kind of life that I wanted to live by the time I was 18 years old. I have 5 core values, and those are the filters in how I make my decisions. If any major life decision does not align with the vision that I have for my life or my 5 core values, then I do not do it. By the end of my time I have in the world, I want people to know that I inspired a lot of people and that my story is a reflection of just choosing to follow through with my commitments. I am grateful that I was given an opportunity and people saw potential in me.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take my best friend to every single beach in San Diego. I would also take her to every single taco shop. San Diego has the best beaches and Mexican food. Some of the local spots I would take her to are: the Coronado Ferry Landing (during the day and during the night), Tacos El Gordo, the Spruce Street Suspension Bridge, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Encinitas.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I give all the glory to God. I also give credit to my family, my coaches/mentors, business mastermind group, and my friends.
