Launch of Sam-Burton.co.uk

sam-burton.co.uk‘Explore, Dream, Discover’

‘The words of Mark Twain inscribed on the walls of a local café in Somerset jumped out at me some decade ago. It goes on to say ‘Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails’,

An experience, like walking on water, it takes faith to leave the safety next of the boat, right? There’s a guy from the good book called Pete, and he actually went for it… walked on the water, what a story. Inspirational.

Many things have been outside my comfort zone, from nights in an Indian slum, to a week with the Amish and refugee camps in the Middle East to name a few. The mix of uncertainty mixed with wonder of culture have certainly shaped and made me.

For me you can’t read about experiences you have to be there, it’s the same for me today when I visit a house, business, family, I’m enriched and feel I’ve stepped into a different world.

Perhaps you need to embrace social media, or need some new creative input?

I’d love to chat,

Blessings, Sam
