How one man turned his passion into a business

I knew a man who loved sailing more than anything.

He collected boat toys as a child and took great care of each one like they were his prized possessions.

At a very young age, he knew what he wanted. He aims to be the captain of his own ship.

In college, he studied a maritime course in preparation to be a seafarer. He wanted to sail across the world and discover new places. He studied every single thing about boats. From sailboats to commercial ships.

He trained for professional sailing, ocean survival, rigging and many more. He went to great extremes, all for his dream.

But as we all know, not everything goes according to plan.

Before his first journey as a seafarer, he got into an accident causing his vision to be badly damaged. For seafarers, eyesight is one of the most important qualification.

Everything he worked for, it was all for nothing now. He almost gave up on his lifelong dream. Then he realized, he may not be a travelling seafarer but he is a sailor by heart.

Like all the successful people in the world, he looked for another way to use his knowledge and his degree.

He founded a sailboat rigging and hardware company.

He worked hard day and night. Learning all there is to be learned. He sought help from the right people and took each advice with care. Even though he didn’t become the captain of a ship, he is now the captain of his own company.
