Show Notes for The Simple Question Movie interview
There are so many places to find Teresa and Ben online – Facebook pages, a couple of YouTube channels as well as their great sailing blogs that have documented many of their journeys. The simplest way to check out what they have to offer is to visit Teresa’s website at:
or find them on facebook
There is an interesting conversation about how to communicate with each other on a boat during the interview and as you can tell, I could use some of this advice myself! In fact, it is just a part of life that we need to accept that our own personalities can benefit from some reflection on how we communicate to others. I hope that anyone who is looking to improve their on-board persona will take Teresa’s advice to heart and take the time to stop and consider what their partner has to say – it just might save you from making a big mistake. If you are looking to combine some sail training along with a delivery of your yacht, you should consider contacting Teresa and Ben via their website.
I hope that you will look forward to the upcoming movie – it is great to see young couples exploring the water and showing how it is possible to follow your dreams. It reminds me of the interview with Chris and Jessica, who have also taken the opportunity to explore the northern latitudes by yacht.
Here is the movie trailer for the One Simple Question Movie
I also wanted to share the TED talk that Teresa Carey presented as I mentioned it a couple of times in the interview. It is a great privilege to present a TED talk and Teresa talks on her blog about the effort that went into preparing a talk with a limited amount of time.
Teresa Carey – My American Dream
The One Simple Question movie captures how a young couple embark on a quest to find an iceberg. Sailing north in a small yacht with cramped living conditions, storms and sleepless nights, they find one of the biggest icebergs in the last 6 decades. The Petermann iceberg turns out to be of concern to climatologists and other scientists as another piece of evidence that our world is warming around us – to the detriment of the environment. Join Ben Eriksen and Teresa Carey as they share their experiences over the voyage and how to live a deliberate life and the pursuit of happiness.
