Kayaking Near Tampa Bay...My Shameless Plug

It's not uncommon for me to promote new projects I'm working on here on the blog.  However, in the interest of full disclosure, I want to be clear that my husband and I own Island Kayak Tours.

As you know, Simply The Good Life is all about living the life you want to live with as little stress and chaos as possible.  So, it should be no surprise that when Mr. Good Life and I decided life was, once again, becoming something it shouldn't, we made a change.  I realize some of you might be thinking, "Owning a business can be VERY stressful and chaotic."  Yes, it can be, but in a much different way.  As a business owner, you are in control...and that makes all the difference.

It's hard to feel the stress and demands of owning your own business when you're on the water.  Paddling through shady mangrove tunnels, and pulling up to the sandy island beach just have a way of melting away your troubles.  I mean, really, how hard can it be to get up for work each day when that is the view from your kayak office?!  As the old saying goes, "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."

I encourage each of you to find your passion, and make it your livelihood.  Of course it won't be easy, and it may take a few tries to find a way to make your dream profitable, but persistence pays off.  Take control of your life and your happiness.  Live your good life, simply.

If you happen to find yourself in the Tampa Bay area, please look us up and come out for a tour.  We offer guided and self-guided (read as rental) tours through Shell Key Preserve, leaving from Tierra Verde, which is near St. Pete Beach.  We'd love to have you!
