Episode 059: Meet Sylvia Earle- A National Geographic Society Resident Explorer, Oceanographer, Author, Lecturer, and “Oceandiver”
About 71% of the earth’s surface is covered with water. But what if all the oceans disappeared? What will become of the Earth? And what will happen to those living in it? Or worse, will there still be anything or anyone living in it? Of course, we have other sources of water other than ocean waters. However, things will not be the same without this salty body of mystery. Just imagine, the earth will be reduced to nothingness! That’s how important the ocean is. The Earth is the safest, most perfect place we can be in the universe. And it’s our job to make sure it stays like that for generations to come.

Episode 057: Meet Mitch King- Singer-Songwriter, Traveler, and Surfer
What is your life goal? Not the ones inspired by Disney but, in all honesty, how would you want your life to be? Sometimes, the determinant for our decisions is the expectations laid to us by others, instead of us doing what we love. Most of them mean well, and out of our love and respect for them, we tend to compromise. Our society too pressures us to fit into its mold. Between a high-paying job and passion, most people, because of the long list of commitments and obligations are left with little to no control of their decisions. At times, it seems that there is only one choice, and that is to survive. But, is this all there is to life?
Episode 056: Meet Michael Hamilton- Co-Founder of Live Swell, Author, and a Free Surfer
Lodging is undoubted one of the first things you consider when planning for a vacation trip. Vacation rentals rose to the trend as the tourism industry starts to bloom. It's cheaper than staying in a hotel and offers a variety of unique experiences at the same time. What if you had a property set up for rentals instead? If you are the travel & adventure kind of person, then owning a vacation rental might be the thing for you. You'll earn extra income and have a vacation home to stay in whenever you miss the ocean! But, how can you make a success in this line of business?

Refreshing & Useful
I’ve listened to several episodes and enjoyed them. It’s refreshing to listen and learn from doers that share a similar passion.
Loved your interview with Pete
Thank you for the interview with Pete. My son is a legally blind skimboarder and highschool student. I loved hearing how his determination paid off. What a cool guy. If Pete reads this I’d love for him to call my son (from the back of his limo lol) as my son is a drummer and determined to be an audio engineer. Cheers!
Very inspiring 🙌🏻
