Johnny McElree was exhausted. He and his family had been driving for days across the Midwest, his father pursuing a new career in California. The land was flat, the weather hot and dry, and Johnny, a boy of merely four-years-old, was getting stir crazy. They’d passed through farmland and desert with nothing but the hope of a new opportunity on the horizon.
When they hit the California border, Johnny’s eyes had never been wider. A palm tree stood taller than anything he’d ever seen, its fronds swaying in the wind and casting a distinct shadow on the land.
“At that moment, I knew I was destined to live somewhere tropical.” That day Johnny dreamed of a life in paradise and, thanks to his drive to succeed, he wakes up in it every day.”
On a vacation to Hawaii’s Kohala Coast, Johnny found the place he’d been dreaming of. There was an instant connection to the people, culture and abundance of palm trees! He was in paradise.
Today, Johnny is still amazed that he lives in this idyllic setting. “I wake up every morning, hop in my outrigger canoe and paddle along the coast,” he says. “I never imagined this could be possible, but I also never gave up the dream.” After Johnny and his family moved here, he immersed himself in the culture by taking classes on Hawaiian tradition and joining an outrigger racing team. “The best part of being here,” he says, “is sharing this new life with my family.”
Achieve the Dream
Johnny didn’t start out having everything he wanted under the sun. Even as a child, he knew it would take hard work and dedication to make his dream a reality. After earning a bachelor’s degree, Johnny set out to exceed his own expectations and followed it up with a master’s. This laid the groundwork for his entrepreneurial spirit and drive.
While founding and operating one of the largest family-owned asphalt milling companies in California was an accomplishment to be sure, Johnny’s dream still drove him. So, relying on his savvy business skills, he sold the company and achieved the dream of a lifetime – living under palm trees. And Johnny’s never looked back since.
