The Hawaiian Fortune Teller


Back in early 2020, before the shut down, I went on vacation with my family to my favorite place in the whole wide world – Hawaii.

I really do love Hawaii. I’ve been there a bunch of times and every time I go, I try to dig a little deeper into the local culture.

The touristy stuff is fine, but if you talk to the right people, you will find the heart of the island.
On the last day of our vacation, I spoke with a local who clued me in on a local market where the locals get together to sell their talents and treasures.

It was a bit off the beaten path.

How far off the beaten path you ask?

It was on an old volcanic lava field in the middle of no where!

As we walked through the market, I saw a guy sitting at a table with an old, antique typewriter.

Through our conversation, I learned that he used to live in Seattle, but moved to Hawaii to get away from it all and live a more simple life.

And what was the typewriter for?

He would ask you a few probing questions and then type a poem about you, right there on the spot.
I love this kind of stuff so I told him that I am a real estate investor, how I have picked up the Probate Fox nickname, and how I coach other investors. I left him to his work, and came back 15 minutes later to collect my souvenir.

Here’s what he wrote:

As cunning as a fox, i’m out the box, for my thoughts flow free my mind is unlocked.
I have no blocks for I do as I please and any desires i have are appeased.

For I have no fear of trying new ideas and my limitations are non existant for if there is anything I wish to have I will stay persistent to get it.

For if I fail to attain my goal I will use my ingenuity to fulfill any roll, until I reach attainment but you know my miscivouse side, I cant contain it, for when there’s fun to be had ill engage my wit, and hopefully my humor someone will get…..

Now my question to you is, are you a Probate Fox too? Are you clever and persistent enough to become the king of your market?

If not, perhaps we should talk.

Committed to your success,
