Trusted Counsel’s Evelyn Ashley and John Monahon speak to Liz Harvey, CEO of Island Windjammers. Island Windjammers provides cruises in the Eastern Caribbean to seasoned travelers who’d likely gawk at the idea of booking a trip aboard an overcrowded massive cruise line where the activity of choice is rock climbing on the massive wall on the deck. Instead, guests on any of the three Island Windjammer’s ships; the Diamant, Sagitta, or the Vela, happily spend their recreational dollars for the experience of smaller sailing ships (10 – 26 guests), visits to smaller islands in the Caribbean, exploring quaint villages, and having more typical ship activities such as snorkeling and hikes. 

During the course of the podcast, CEOs, business owners, and C-level executives will learn:

  • What led Liz Harvey to form Island Windjammers
  • Her best tactic for marketing the business
  • How she’s able to manage her team virtually from the United States
  • Her experience with fundraising and taking advantage of Rule 506(c)
  • How she managed to solidify her business when 2017 hurricanes hit hard and nearly decimated her ships and the business
