After college, Eric Saperston bought a 1971 Volkswagen bus, took his golden retriever Jack and set out to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen. While on the road he called up some of the most powerful people in the world and asked them out for a cup of coffee. The reason: to find out the values they live by, the struggles they endured and what advice and counsel they would give others to better prepare themselves for the road ahead. The results: a development deal with Walt Disney Studios, an award-winning film The Journey, an apparel line, a speaking tour and his latest book Live In Wonder: Quests, Quotes & Questions To Jumpstart Your Journey. What started out as a personal journey to find the answers to life's biggest questions (Why am I here? How can I find happiness? What is success?) quickly turned into something bigger than he ever imagined.
