Polly the Wooden Sloop

Polly the Wooden Sloop

I just met Polly. She's a wooden sailboat built in 1945. Peter, a friend from Telluride, is a passionate boat builder who has devoted the last 4 years of his life to restoring this sloop. I was lucky enough to be invited aboard for Polly’s first cruise.

Though I’m a land lover by nature, I opened my mind and my heart to this adventure at sea. As we cruised gracefully through the Maine Islands, my thoughts drifted with the water and the wind. I focused on being fully present with Polly and her captain. Though exhausted from the months of arduous work that lead up to Polly’s grand launch, Peter’s excitement and inspiration radiate from him tirelessly.

Describe your perfect day as a wildpreneur.
My perfect day starts with going through my self-care morning rituals and eating a healthy savory breakfast, followed by work that needs detailed attention or peak energy. I have deep, meaningful conversations with clients, an energizing workout to re-set my mind and body, and lunch outdoors. In the afternoon I take care of business upkeep, planning and production. I lose track of time when I’m totally engaged and focused. I end the work day feeling fulfilled that I served others well, and was able to use my intuition, creativity and logistical skills. My perfect day would continue with a family-style dinner with friends and laughter and a spacious view of the sunset. It sounds rather cliche, but I have had many days like this and they are absolutely wonderful so I plan to keep it up. :-)  

Is this work your passion? What keeps you motivated?
I am fueled by joy and gratitude that I get to do what I do. It fills my tank, so to speak. My tangible sense of possibility and freedom keeps me motivated! And, more specifically, witnessing moments of awareness, connection and the transformation of other human beings.
