Sail Loot Podcast 023: Leela’s Sailing Money with Emmanuel & Saxony

By on May 28, 2015

When Emmanuel emailed me in early March on of the words that he used to describe the Sail Loot Podcast was “Brilliant.” You know, I tend to agree! Maybe he just knew how far flattery can take you in this world. I don’t know. Either way, thank you Emmanuel!

He also said things like,

“Last year I met a wonderful girl (Saxony) and we made it our goal to go sailing.”

“Go-go-go all the time best summarizes my line of work. I’ve built a consulting business, sold it to a larger firm, been a partner in this larger firm for past 3 years.”

“3 weeks ago I announced to my business partners I wanted to quit and go sailing.”

Obviously, my first thought was, “This sounds like a great story for the Sail Loot Podcast!”

They bought their sailboat, Leela, in August of 2014 and have been retrofitting her to get her into cruising shape for the last 9 months. Of course, I was curious about how Emmanuel and Saxony came up with Leela’s sailing money. Take a listen to this episode of the Sail Loot Podcast to find out!
