|In the Works|
|"Live What You Love has generated thousands of emails. We hear from people every day who share their stories of how they’ve managed to follow a dream," the Blanchards told us in our interview when we asked them what's next. "These stories are so inspirational that we just can’t keep them to ourselves. We’re in the process or sorting the stories to be included in a series of Live What You Love books to inspire people in specific situations to get as much out of life as possible."|
|Don't Stop the Carnival|
"Don't Stop the Carnival by Herman Wouk was the book that probably had the most influence on our life," the Blanchards reveal. "Though it was a work of fiction, it described life in the Caribbean in all its glory and eventually led us to our own life in paradise."
