Mavericks and Merlin's Book Launch November 16 – Real Estate Insurance Coverage Blog

Writing a book is not easy. When I wrote PayUP! I got the idea that what I wrote about involving insurance disputes and representing policyholders did not fully explain some of my philosophies about being a policyholder's advocate and why I like competition to be a litigation— stand up for people against a well-funded and sophisticated opponent.

So, I wrote a second book, Mavericks & Merlins: Sailors And Renegades Leave Shore, What About You? While some may think the book is about a unique 70-foot racing sailboat that has set all kinds of sailing records, I think it's more of a story about why we should all question the big "why" of what we do and what we really want our liver to be. [1

Still, Lee chose to challenge the status quo and followed his dream despite obstacles and without knowing exactly what the outcome would be. I wrote:

To dream big requires that you like to make it difficult to get where you want to go. If it was easy to be successful, everyone would reach the top of their chosen professions. Of course, not everyone can stand on the podium. I think it's important to know that even when you've tried as hard as you can and you do not reach the top, it does not mean that you have failed. The real failure lies in not trying at all. It's as true on the racetrack as it is in the company's boardroom.

For many of us, it's safer not to do anything to go against our dreams. Daily routines swallow us all. We barely have time to think, let alone dream. Routine is predictable and comfortable. I would argue that inertia comes from a fear of the unknown and, for some of us, from an innate laziness that prepares us for failure. The fear of failure stops some of us in our tracks. Do not get me wrong: I love to win. But I'm not afraid to fail either. We can and should learn from our mistakes and setbacks.

While the book is now available, the official book launch will be next week, November 16th. If you liked PayUP! some have suggested to me that Mavericks and Merlins are much easier to read because the lessons apply more to what we encounter in life rather than the obstacles we face when they are limited to insurance claims.

I hope you will come with me on November 16 at. 16.00 EST for this book launch.
