Life in Focus 23: Christine Perakis Buried Alive, How to Weather the Storms of Life and Business

lifestory survival Oct 01, 2019



What would you do if you found yourself trapped in the middle of a category 5 hurricane – twice?

For adventurer and Entreprenuer, Christine Perakis, fear was never an issue, she lived an adventurous and successful life. She was an experienced sailor and licensed boat captain, sky diver, had medical training, and was a survivalist. She started and ran 10 successful businesses, learning along the way and growing as an entrepreneur. Then after launching her first bestselling book she faced the greatest storm of her life. Even with her skill set, success, and survival knowledge, she faced a situation that has defined who she is now.

In this episode I interview Christine and ask her about what made her become so successful before the storm, and we dive into how it affected her life and transformed the way she looks at the world post storm.

Being trapped in her home on an island where there was not even the basics: running water, electricity or groceries for months, she pushed through and focused on documenting her journey with the only available pen and paper she had. 

Her first book is the bestseller "The Entrepreneur's Essential Roadmap: Take Your Business from 0 to 7 Figures in Record Time"

Her experience under the pressure of the storm allowed to know herself deeply and realize what her ideal life was, one without boundaries, fear, and self doubt. Her second book “The Resilient Leader” will be available soon.
