Larry Jacobson, TEDx Speaker, Life Planning Coach, Author, The Boy Behind the Gate
Join six-time award-winning author, two-time TEDx speaker, executive and life planning coach Larry Jacobson, as he brings you on board the sailing vessel Julia for the ride of your life. With personal insight, wisdom and humor, Jacobson will share funny, scary and romantic stories from his six-year odyssey.
He will answer questions such as: How were he and his openly gay crew received? Were there problems flying the rainbow flag all the way around the world? How did Jacobson deal with his fears? What scared him the most: pirates, storms, tsunamis or Texans?
You’ll learn more about Jacobson’s method for managing fear, which he developed while at sea. Jacobson will also be signing his award-winning memoir, an Amazon No. 1 best seller, The Boy Behind the Gate.
