9781478720928: Leap of Faith: Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat

There are many of us who dream about selling all our stuff, quitting our jobs, and running away to Paradise. This is a story about one couple who made that dream come true. The author shares what it feels like to experience ultimate freedom, and outlines the steps they took to get there. The story includes tales from their travels, social commentary on the state of today's American society, and a simple financial plan that will benefit anyone, regardless of their future goals. Throughout the narrative the reader is treated to dolphins and manatees, pelicans and osprey, blue skies, blue water and white sand beaches. Tropical music plays a role as well. Read how music inspired them to execute their plan. Follow along as they transform from everyday working drones to carefree boat bums and beachcombers. This book will make you rethink how you look at life, and money.

About the Author:

Ed Robinson was a reporter and editor of a weekly newspaper, The Smyrna Times. He was also a contributing writer for The Mariner Magazine, a Maryland based publication covering all things boating and fishing. After twenty years working for a major utility, he quit his job and moved onto a boat. He and his wife Kim are somewhere on the west coast of Florida. Be sure to check out his second book Poop, Booze, and Bikinis, Amazon's number one bestseller in Boating.

Review:

This is a wonderful story about a dream, determination, discipline, and courage. It's a gaze into the rat race tunnel, but it points the way out. Many will identify with it and take away something valuable. The author's narrative on life in the sun and sand and sea is mesmerizing. I loved this book.

Paul Carr, author of The Cayman Switch and Long Way Down
