Have you figured out what's holding you back from living your dream?
Is it Kids? Money? Time?
This incredible interview with Emily and Erik Orton of The Awesome Factory NYC will make you rethink all the things holding you back and give you the courage to live a better story—the story you only dream about now.
The Ortons have lived in a 2 bedroom apartment in NYC since 1999. They have 5 kids the youngest with Down syndrome. Emily grew up terrified of water and Erik was not raised in a sailing family. Despite every excuse not to dream big and live adventurously, they decided to bootstrap a year on a sailboat with their 5 kids. The adventure gave them a new perspective on facing fears, solving problems, and living life to the fullest.
"We believe the most important thing you can do is live a better story. We believe the greatest gift we can all give each other is encouragement. We hope sharing our stories will spark clarity and confidence to help you live deliberately and do what matters most to you."
After returning from their year living on a sailboat, they wrote a book Seven At Sea where they share their experience in full detail—the good, the bad and the ugly. Snag it on in hardback, digital or audio on amazon. (affiliate link)
Erik is an Emmy Award® winning writer. Emily is a former English teacher turned homeschool mom. Together they now write and speak about living a better story.
What's your better story? The only finite thing in life is time. How are you going to use yours?
