Leap of Faith / Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat

  It’s been eight months since my first book was published. Leap of Faith has been kind to me, or should I say readers have been kind. 

It has 148 Five Star reviews (227 total reviews). It’s been called “Inspiring,” “A Must Read,” and “Brilliant Advice.” This book shows you how to find genuine happiness, even if you don’t want to live on a boat.

Actual quotes from reviewers at Amazon:

Great read for the dreamer in all of us

Worth reading if you have a dream of freedom

A must read for us wanna be liveaboards!

It kept me smiling from start to finish!

Like a conversation with a friend  

Thought provoking

Be careful! This just might change your life!

Great book, hard to put down

 Absolutely Brilliant

Great book and Wonderful Perspectives

 

I’ve had so many people contact me via Facebook to thank me and say how the book has inspired them. It’s really gratifying for me to see it reach so many readers. Thanks to everyone who purchased and read Leap of Faith, but especially to those that reached out to me as a result. My Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/quityourjobandliveonaboat?ref=hl
