This November we decided to join the Freedom Entrepreneur Cruise.
The reasons for joining are manyfold. A cruise was never something I had in mind to do. What a waste of time.
Until I met Jeanet Bathoorn, the Cruise Lady, the Freedom Entrepreneur.
With my high-paced lifestyle, still understanding that I wanted a lot of joy out of life, and living by the mantra “work hard, play hard” I had never connected the words Entrepreneur and Cruise.
Then I heard about “slowing down to speed up” and I remember distinctly that one of my previous mentors always talked about slow time and fast time.
To me this was about playing, my slow time – and working, my fast time.
And then it hit me – my favourite colour is blue.
Blue to me is about depth. It’s about having long lasting impact. It’s the ocean. It the calm stream, it’s the wild waves, it’s about the essence of life, the water we need to survive. It’s about longevity. It’s the Blue Ocean that brings new ideas to life.
So I themed this trip that we are doing across the Atlantic Ocean my BLUE Trip. BLUE = Book, Leisure, Unwind and Entertain. Being among the seas for a few weeks, entertaining leisure time and unwinding just enough to think about writing a book with the purpose of bringing my own life’s purpose.
The book is going to support my themes of Blue Ocean (Strategy), Business, Technology and Human Development. It will be working around what makes humans thrive in the digital age and the impact we can all have by using our true strengths – and getting rid of the things that limit us to live our full potential.
It will be around the Digital Human.
PS: If you’d like to join the Freedom Entrepreneur Cruise, there are spots available.
