Roz Savage hardly dared to dream she would ever go across an ocean unless she was comfortably seated miles above, in an airplane, but in 2005 she embarked on an epic crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, rowing solo for the entire 103 days it took to travel from the Canary Islands to Antigua. Why? Approaching forty, Savage decided there must be more to life than an unhappy marriage, an expensive car and a high paying job--but to become the first woman ever to compete in the Atlantic Rowing Race? They told her she was crazy; that she wasn't big enough, not tall enough, not strong enough. Her determination toward that goal and her dangerous journey is a story to give hope to anyone with the courage to seek more for their lives. Savage has gone on to be the first woman to cross the Pacific Ocean solo, and continues to work toward new goals, not only for herself but also the environment--along with Blue Frontier, an environmental group working to save the world's oceans. Her 2006 'Lessons Learned' essay in the London Times spread like wildfire, passed from one person to another worldwide, and continues to inspire people today.
Savage has been featured on the CBS Early Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, and in everything from National Geographic to Outside to Men's Journal, and regularly tours the world as a motivational speaker.
The Good Life has been created by Kim Ricketts Book Events and The Warren Report, and is supported by sponsorships from Children's Trust Foundation, Bastyr University, Tom Douglas Restaurants, Theo Chocolate, Nesting Instincts, and Lush Life Floral.
