Larry Jacobson Biography A California native, circumnavigator Larry Jacobson grew up on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean sailing, kayaking, and swimming. With degrees from the University of California Irvine and Berkeley, his entrepreneurial and adventurous spirit flourished as he started an adventure travel company leading whitewater-rafting explorations on then-unchartered rivers in New Zealand. Larry’s career in travel blossomed as the industry began its hyper-growth. From salesman to CEO, he led his newly founded company on a fast pace to success. After 20 years as an industry leader, he made the difficult decision to leave the business world to pursue his lifetime dream of sailing around the world. His expertise as an entrepreneur shines in Navigating Entrepreneurship. And he inspires children to achieve and be grateful in his new children’s book, Let’s Go! The account of his adventures at sea is now published in the Award-winning best seller, The Boy Behind the Gate. During his six-year odyssey, Larry and his crew faced many surprise challenges, learned the true meaning of perseverance, and experienced first-hand why so few people who set sail to circumnavigate actually complete the arduous journey. It will inspire you to make your own dreams come true, whatever they may be. As an author and motivational speaker, Jacobson inspires as he shares the traits and disciplines needed to achieve great accomplishments and persevere in any endeavor. Through stories of harrowing storms in the Red Sea, repeated mechanical breakdowns, and his new role as captain, Larry shares his fears and how he learned to use them to his advantage. From the tsunami in Thailand to pirates in the Gulf of Aden, the six-year journey presented an astonishing number of life-threatening events, any one of which could derail such an undertaking. Instead, taking each trial to task at the moment taught Jacobson to mark the worth in every day with gratitude. As a speaker, Larry inspires his audience to do the same. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and welcomes feedback and new friends at: Larry is currently working on two new books.
