HONOLULU, HI — Hawaii is a gold rush to make the best of its current and future wealth.
Its new tourism boom has attracted the attention of some in the state’s rich establishment, who are looking to capitalize on its new status as a major tourist destination.
Hawaiian gold jewelry and natural resources have become the focus of a new generation of wealthy investors, and it’s the young professionals and artisans who are making the most of the boom, said John Daugherty, a partner at the Honolulu office of the law firm of Covington & Burling.
This year, the number of Hawaiians working in Hawaii’s private sector doubled, to 2.6 million, and the state recorded a record $1.9 billion in sales.
“It’s all about opportunity, opportunity and a lot of that is being created in Hawaii,” said Daugitt.
The state’s tourism boom is helping to bring more international tourists to Hawaii, and those who do have money are spending it on things like Hawaiian beer and Hawaiian wines.
One of those new businesses is H.C. Kaulau Jewelry & Apparel, which opened its first store in Honolulu in February.
Kaulau’s products range from jewelry to home décor and everything in between.
C Kaulaus is the newest company to emerge from Hawaii’s “gold rush,” which is still relatively new.
It’s the latest in a string of small businesses that have sprouted up around the state over the past few years.
According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, there were more than 600 new business entities in Hawaii in 2017.
That number grew by more than 300 percent to more than 2,400 in 2020.
And Hawaii is the second-most popular destination for international tourists, with an average of more than 30,000 visitors a day, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
But there’s more to Hawaii than just the beautiful scenery.
There’s the state itself.
In the mid-1980s, Hawaii was known as the “Golden Triangle” because of the golden beaches and mountains that dotted the coastline.
Nowadays, the area is home to some of the most expensive real estate in the world, with prices reaching over $10 million for the top floor of the Hyatt Regency.
With the recent boom in tourism, the real estate market has shifted to other parts of the state, including Maui and Lanai.
So how do you make money from a tourism boom that has already generated more than $100 billion in annual revenue?
The key is to make sure you have a presence, said Davenport, the marketing director at Kaulauer Jewelers.
For instance, Davenports says she and her partners are taking in more than half of their business from Hawaii.
Her company, which is based in Maui, has an office in Honolulu.
A few weeks ago, she was on her way to visit a friend in Lanai when a driver stopped her in front of the building.
She said that the driver told her he had to buy something, but she didn’t buy anything.
When she got home, she found the entire building empty, including her house.
She said the driver said he didn’t know what to do.
She asked him what he had for dinner.
He said he wanted to buy her a drink.
She laughed, thinking that it was just another way to help herself.
She took out her wallet and began filling it up.
Then she put it on the car.
He put it in his pocket and he said, ‘I have to get home and get you something,’ Davenamps said.
Then, she told him, ‘OK, you can’t do this.
I’ll pay for this.’
He said, “Yeah, but I’ll give you a credit card and that’ll cover the rent.'”
She said, that was just one of the many times she had to say no to the driver.
She also has found ways to use the boom as a way to make money.
I have found myself taking a couple of different things with me and just being a sponge on them, she said.
She has also found a way, through her business, to make extra money on her investments, even when she is not actively investing.
Because of this, she is trying to use her newfound wealth to help her own business.
Davenport is one of a number of business owners in Hawaii who have embraced the new reality.
They are creating new businesses to support themselves and their families.
Maui and Kauai have seen a spike in businesses opening in recent years.
But Hawaii is not the only place to open a business in the Golden Triangle.
Even in Hawaii, a place with its own
