Capable of doing a Great Job
Our confidence is sky rocketing! Everyone loves Optimistic Vibe!
Who are we?
’Optimistic Vibe’ is a book written by Robert John Cook.
“Robert John Cook is committed to his community--offering all of us a shared hand to improve our streets, our culture, our senses and our lives. His ancestors arrived here four hundred years ago searching for a particular salvation--and he has presented now a program which will shine a light.” Max Kennedy
What do you want to make?
We are handcrafting our Tiny Home Village, alternative off-grid, with entertainment, providing ‘How-To Tiny Home Hawai’i’ to international Tiny Home Nation on HGTV.
Our mission for our film documentary is to build our Tiny Home Village, ‘Aloha Ola Ana’ (Love Living), so we can show Oprah how a group of people working with two major universities delivered Oprah’s Self-Sustainability approach of Passion leading to Purpose.
You’re doing something complex, share details to demonstrate that you know what you’re doing.
Vibrant positive energy of Optimistic Vibe Team with an active vibe in the Hawai’i Island community. The community recognizes the Optimistic Vibe Team’s “Interesting Path to Happiness” via Self-Sustainability and responds with support and encouragement.
Going back 400 Native Years to a time when humankind was the Happiest on the planet Earth through Self-Sustainability. ‘Optimistic Vibe’ will illustrate the reason for the Happiness through the Self-Sustainability of Seven Teachings: Love, Honesty, Respect, Truth, Courage, Humility, and Wisdom.
Depicting the Self-Sustainability of Happiness through Collaboration using Seven Teachings, ‘Optimistic Vibe’ will highlight the comparison between Passion and Happiness by comparing our community, Aloha Ola Ana, to the successful Pilgrim Mayflower self-sustainable community ‘Plimoth’ that flourished 400 Native Years ago using Self-Sustainability techniques.
‘Optimistic Vibe’ will highlight 400 Native Years past when society valued Happiness through Self-Sustainability more than they valued Money, and how Fair Trade/Barter was the tool of currency.
‘Optimistic Vibe’ will feature Happiness through Self-Sustainability by combining Seven Teachings with Love from the genius of Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Your Passion is a Spiritual Gift’, Honesty from Wright Brothers’ ‘We just knew’, Respect from Walt Disney’s ‘The distance between Vision and Reality is a To Do List’, Truth from Steve Jobs’ ‘Passion pulls You’, Courage from John Lennon’s ‘Evolution to overcome Fear’, Humility from His Holiness Dali Lama ‘Self-Confidence can change the world’, Wisdom from Oprah Winfrey’s ‘Passion leads to Purpose’.
To connect Seven Teachings with Action, not words, with Fair Trade opportunity through One Hand Up’s Tiny Home Hawai’i in a collaborative setting, ‘Optimistic Vibe’ will illustrate the amazing results of Happiness when positive energy is applied to ‘Truth Within’.
From our entertaining social marketing/blog updates for HGTV, the Optimistic Vibe Team will select media that supports a HGTV Lifestyle in Hawai’i for HGTV-Tiny Home Nation, specifically Portland’s Tiny Home Nation. To add entertainment with an island vibe to ‘Optimistic Vibe’, the soundtrack will be live recordings of the island’s Optimistic Vibe Band performing at Music For The People beach events, Kanekapila Gatherings, Open Mic’s, and House Concerts (public and private) around the island.
We hold ourselves accountable as the birthday gift to Ethel Kennedy that ‘Optimistic Vibe’ is (from her son Max’s commission to Artist Robert John Cook). Every decision we make, we consider Ethel as our guiding light. For this reason we are highly professional, real transparent, and through the Seven Teachings of Love, Honesty, Respect, Truth, Courage, Humility, and Wisdom we are confident.
We are the Optimistic Vibe Team. We have two universities on standby if we need professional business consulting, and we have professionals on our team like the best CPA firm around to keep track of every penny.
Team of Passion
Our Team is our Cast. Every person you see in our film documentary is a member of our Team. We are community!
Similar work we’ve done
Back in 2012 we opened our first Optimistic Vibe location. Happenstance would have it that our very cool first location landed on HGTV as a feature in the nationally televised HGTV show ‘Going Yard’. We are very comfortable with HGTV!
What we are planning to make
From our film documentary, with our proven Self-Sustainability model we have plans to apply our Pro-Positive approach to a list of additional national and international social concerns needing an Optimistic Vibe.
Where did this project come from?
In the year 1620 the first Self-Sustainable community on what would later become American soil was built. It was called ‘Plimoth Plantation’. For nineteen years Self-Sustainability worked. In our film documentary we are advancing proven Self-Sustainability techniques to modern day in a Tiny Home Village in Hawai’i called ‘Aloha Ola Ana’.
How we got the idea
One brother comes up with the ideas, the other brother follows his passion to bring the ideas to life.
How much we’ve accomplished so far
We spent four and half years, with two universities, designed and built our Self-Sustainability strategy. The model of Self-Sustainability has been tested in the lab, we applied what we have learned, and we are at this point; All Systems Go!

What’s our plan?
Our plan to create our film documentary is budget driven. We are creating quantity fifty less than five minutes each videos for social marketing to get the word out and help fundraise. Our plan is to select from the series of five minutes video a ‘collage’ for our film documentary. The film documentary will be a collection of selected social media that capture our Action, not words. Our plan is to issue an Action video of real transparency, for each task necessary to build Aloha Ola Ana to prove our Self-Sustainability experiment.
What’s our schedule?
Our film documentary is a six month project. Our start date for film documentary production commences November 1, 2016. This is when we will launch our Kickstarter campaign. Our post-production completion is scheduled for April 2017.

Prologue: Acknowledgment of Honor… Those who Provide Gifts are the Gift
What’s our budget?
We have written a script requiring quantity fifty five minute videos, in a variety of locations around the island. Transportation, following labor, is our largest expense. Our budget calls for $2,000 per five minute video, our total budget is 50 x $2,000 = $100,000.
We were approached by Investors, but to be honest, their interests of profit and greed doesn't align with our vision of delivering good to people, our environment, and community. We told the Investors a big No, and are going it alone. We figure when you see what we are doing you will give us the green light with whatever you can afford. Simple encouragement is always appreciated!
We require funding initially, and we have ten opportunities to replace funding by generating our own income. We are excited to reduce our initial need for funding and be financially independent as quickly as possible. We just need a little help in the beginning to get started to ‘prime our Cash Flow Pump!’
The total budget provides the expense of meeting our Cash Flow needs to process growth for income generation from:
1. Aloha E Ola Ana, income from Tiny Home Hawai’i vacation rentals.
2. One Hand Up, we generate job growth.
3. Tiny Home Community Resource Center, our store/warehouse sells.
4. How-To Tiny Home Hawai’i, we host workshops.
5. Education For The People, wide ranging vacation packages.
6. Optimistic Vibe Hawai'i, public events, workshops, retreats.
7. Meditation For The People, from Awakening to Zumba, workshops/retreats.
8. Tiny Home Big Heart, donations for building “LOVE”
9. Tiny Home Hawai’i, we sell Assembled and DIY Tiny Home Kits
10. Gathering of Optimism, amazing ticket-only event.
Our overall Task, Budget, and Schedule
We manage our Task, Budget, and Schedule via a Master Excel File. We had preliminary meetings with a CPA firm that the Maui University of Hawai’I SBDC gave a thumbs up to. Based not far from Optimistic Vibe Basecamp is the office for Carbonaro CPA.
Pele has provided the wonderful Gift of opening doors for us, we are in honor.
Trust to use funds wisely
We are Pono.
