“How to Slay a Pirate: Lessons on Success from Sailing the Pacific”.

On Tuesday, June 4, my friend, sailor, and adventurer Barbara Gottesman is released her first book called “How to Slay a Pirate: Lessons on Success from Sailing the Pacific”. I am writing to support her efforts to achieve Amazon bestseller status by asking you to mark your calendars to purchase the book tomorrow (Tuesday, June 4, 2012) from Amazon (available in both print and ebook formats). It contains Barbara’s story about how she got to sailing the Pacific with her family and unique lessons on success that you won’t want to miss. And please forward this to anyone who enjoys a good adventure and/or personal growth.

The book, “How to Slay a Pirate” is the ultimate guide to setting your goals in motion, slaying your pirates (your negative self talk), and finally achieving what you’ve only dreamed of until now.  Accompanied by practical step-by-step exercises to guide you through the process, together with travel blog excerpts from Barbara’s nearly two-and-a-half year family sailing adventure through Mexico, the South Pacific and Australia, this book delivers a candid account of challenge, risk, and reward to  make a compelling case for why finding your passion is essential.

Commencement Address

On June 14 I will deliver the commencement address to high school students in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I am looking forward to making the trip over to them. Met them a few months ago when I addressed the student body and was asked to return to do the commencement.

Today I will start working on the 20 min address and what I would like them to enter the next phase of their journey with. It is an exciting time for these students. The beginning of the rest of their lives have come where they get to make their own choices and decisions. What an honor to be a part of their journey.
