9 years ago I was working a corporate job, wondering if "this was it"? I was constantly daydreaming about my next overseas getaway and felt like I could never get ahead with my savings.
I heard about the superyacht industry, and decided to join. I had no idea what I was doing, or that the best years of my life were just around the corner.
And ended up working on award winning superyachts from 40m - 85m in length, across private, charter, sailing, motor, single season, dual season and world traveling programs, and was responsible for the interviewing, hiring and training onboard large interior teams.
Yachties are working around entrepreneurs and highly successful business people daily, opening our eyes to possibilities and expanding our network.
Own my three bedroom house, buy my dream car, go on boujee holidays multiple times a year, and move to London to start my own business.
I've snorkelled around Pablo Escobar's shipwreck in the Bahamas, spent days off sipping Pina Colada's on the beach in the Caribbean, weekends clubbing in Ibiza, and dined in the best restaurants along the French Riviera.
I worked on vessels that paid for my training in mixology, floristry, wine and service with some of the best companies in the world.
I have friendships with the most incredible people all around the world, who I've been able to have once-in-a-lifetime experiences with onboard and continue to have now.
I'm no longer gatekeeping how-to land the best jobs in the industry and have a successful career onboard.
I want it to be realistic and possible for everyday people, just like me who nine years ago, couldn't find a way out. Because....
You can have a good career, regular worldwide travel, and a juicy savings account ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
You don't have to 'settle' or 'come to terms' with an average life in your 20s or 30s to get ahead.
Change your life, and go after your dreams because you only live once, and I don't want this to be something you look back and regret.
