live a better story

The New York Times Book Review - Top Travel Book 2019

Many people feel like they’re drifting through life. When our family bootstrapped a year on a sailboat, we learned it doesn’t have to be that way. In our book, Seven at Sea, people find courage to live deliberately doing what matters most to them.

 


We wrote Seven at Sea because your dreams matter. This life is not a dress rehearsal. Sand is moving through the hourglass. You may not want to live on a sailboat. Most people don’t. Either way, we bet there’s something important calling from inside you, something you want to do that is central to who you are. And that something is probably a little scary.  We’ve been there. We’ve felt that fear. And we’ve learned that sometimes our new favorite things are hiding just on the other side of our fears. We would love to help you overcome those fears and pursue your dreams.

When our editor first read our book, he said, “I don’t want to live on a sailboat, but I have my own mountains I want to climb.  Reading your book helped move those mountains a little closer.”  Whatever mountain you want to climb, or ocean you want to cross, we hope sharing our story will make it easier for you to live your dreams.
