Life in NYC had nearly sucked my homegrown, country soul from my chest and I couldn’t bare to see it happen any longer. So after venting session #483 with that friend we all have, I was ready for a leap, for something new. (Thank god for those friends, btw.) This particular friend also happened to know some people who were launching a yachting business. Say what? Sounds fancy!
Enter YachtLegend. What’s that you say? All inclusive, luxury yachting in an exotic locale? I wanted in.
A few emails and lots of ‘soul searching’ later, I made that commitment to do something different. Here’s the victory email I sent shortly after:
I just sent $1,000 to a complete stranger for a sailing trip half way across the world in 6 months, which is contingent on me quitting a job and moving, prior to going.
DAMN IT FEELS GOOD TO BE A GROWN-UP.
A few short weeks later I quit that awful J-O-B, packed up my closet-sized apartment, and drove back to God’s country (Minnesota, USA in case you’re wondering). What an incredible feeling! And all thanks to YachtLegend (sorta). The point isn’t that you have to quit your job to go sailing; the point is that if you’re inspired to do something great, find a way to make it happen.
So enough about me, let’s talk about you. You’re here at this very moment, on this site, reading this blog. Maybe you like yachting or maybe you’re searching for some inspiration of your own. Either way, you’re here because you intended to be. And now you’re faced with a decision. But don’t be fooled – the decision before you is about so much more than yachting. Seriously. This is something amazingly different.
