6 Ways We Amaze You at Take Me There Sailing
Take Me There Sailing, based in Punta Gorda Florida, offers all-inclusive sailing charters and came about as a result of a dream. But isn’t that the way most small businesses start? Here is the Reader’s Digest version of the history behind the dream of Take Me There Sailing…
Steve has been boating all of his life so for his birthday in 2011 I bought him professional sailing lessons- knowing that a boat would be in our future. Before the lessons were finished, Steve was looking at boats for sale- no surprise there! After much searching, we purchased this 1975 Gulfstar in December 2011. In 2014, when Steve retired from the military and was offered a job in the Washington, DC area, we sailed Take Me There from Florida to the Potomac River and lived aboard for three years. In 2017 and 2018, we broke away from the dock and cruised the East Coast and the Bahamas. What an amazing adventure!
While we were sailing, there were other life-events going on. During this time, I completed my Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership and continued consulting with clients around the United States on how to create servant leaders and healthy organizational cultures. In 2019, after 20 years of serving clients, I closed InterWeave’s doors. But I wasn’t ready to settle down and just play golf several times a week- although we love our golf community home in Timber Greens.
Not quite ready to slow down during retirement, Steve and I took our passions for sailing, exploring new places, serving others, and living a life full of purpose and meaning and decided to launch Take Me There Sailing to offer private, all-inclusive sailing charters. After a year in the boatyard, we are now ready to start serving clients! And we are so excited to have you come aboard.
After a year of quarantines, work-at-home, home-schooling, take out or food delivery, social distancing, and limited social engagements- aren’t you ready to throw your hands in the air and shout, “take me away!” Well, just say TAKE ME THERE and we are ready to help you get there.
