Give give give... any time for receiving?

As yachties we all know what its like to give so much of yourself to the job, to your crew and your guests and then feel that there is no time left for you.

How To Be Unforgettable Crew - Get engaged!

(previously posted in LinkedIn)John was 22 years old and a new deckhand aboard a 60m yacht.
