The man smiled, said it was a pleasure to meet a young entrepreneur, and told Kaika his name was Zig. Then Zig said, “You remind me of how I became the number one door-to-door salesman of cookware in all of the South!”
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
On a Sunday afternoon, Kaika and his friends were again playing wiffle ball beneath their favorite banyan tree when a tourist approached them. The man asked whether he could throw a few pitches with Kaika and his friends. This man had an enormous smile on his face, and he seemed genuinely interested in tossing a few pitches at the boys and Leilani to try to strike them out.
Sunday night after sitting for both Saturday and all day Sunday without making a single sale, Kaika was getting even more discouraged about the possibility of his business being successful. He was encouraged about being selected as team captain, but he had lots of questions about this role, especially because he had never been a leader before.
