(Update: I'm setting this to free because I'm not continuing to update the examples anymore, nor am I able to do the recruiting for you at this point. But I want the basic information to still be available to those who are interested! And I'm always willing to answer questions, it just might take me longer right now.)

Are you in an area that doesn't have a lot of local Simbi members? Let's get proactive about changing that! I've typed up some ideas that I've had success with in the past, Hopefully some of them will work for you. Even if you don't find people offering exactly what you are looking for, having more people will draw in even more people, until you DO get what you are wanting. This is a great community and it is a privilege to share it with others! So let's get growing!

Training & Qualifications


I just joined and earned my SIMBASSADOR badge the next day. Within 2 days, I was already recruiting locals who I didn't know previously. I'm on a personal mission to build up the list of available services on Oahu and would love to help you do the same in your area. The more services available, the better the experience is for everyone!

Availability & Preferences


Email or Simbi messaging is the easiest way to go but we can also set up a time to live chat/phone and go over everything.

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

I LOVE to travel but it is so expensive from Hawaii. If anyone has vouchers they won't be using (and that can be transferred) I'd love to trade. Just let me know what you think is reasonable. I'...

About Charissa Potrafka

I've lived in Hawaii for over 10 years now and absolutely love it! I'm a nanny and photographer who also makes jewelry (mostly sterling silver and glass) and loves to do crafts. I have extensive exp...erience with pet sitting and house sitting, as well. If you are visiting Hawaii, I'd love to give you inside tips and help you plan your trip, especially if you are trying to do it on a budget. Being frugal in paradise is my specialty! My newest adventure is that I've found a way to get scuba certified and go diving for FREE! WooHoo! I'm doing a work exchange program with a dive shop here on Oahu. I'm a "tank monkey" for one shift a week in exchange for my lessons and equipment. After a pretty horrendous health ordeal, it is exciting to be getting my life back and being active again. I'm into the "crunchy" lifestyle and prefer to make as much as possible myself. I've been brewing kombucha for 10 years now. I also make sourdough and yogurt. If there is a way to DIY something, I've probably tried it (or want to try it!)show more
