Dear Fellow Traveler:
I see you there. You've got sweat on your brow and dirt on your clothes. A full, heavy pack drapes over your shoulders. You breathe deeply as you look back on the long road you've traveled. But then you turn forward, knowing you must press on. Because whether you are standing atop a mountain's peak or at its base in a deep, dark valley, you know this is just one moment. It does not define you. It does not complete your journey. But it does exist to shape you and your spirit. And it is preparing you for what comes next.
Let's go there together.
My name is Korry Franke. I'm a husband, a father, and a major airline captain. I'm an author of 3 Feet to the Left and a storyteller. I'm an optimist and a dreamer. And more than anything, I'm a journeyer. I'm a seeker of side roads and scenic routes. And I'm building a community of journeyers, a community of dreamers and achievers, who seek richness as well as riches as we travel together from first step to fulfillment.
Together, this community is climbing higher and soaring farther. Together, we are traveling from first step to fulfillment. Together, we are embracing the ethos that success comes not in spite of our circuitous life journeys but BECAUSE of them.
It's time to fly.
Korry Franke, formerly the youngest captain at United Airlines, believed success came from following a simple formula. But over the course of his first year as a Boeing 737 captain, as he was pushed as a leader and shaped as a man, Korry came to understand that his formula for success was missing one pivotal piece--a piece that changed everything about how he viewed success and how he would live his life from then on.
Through the pages of his book, 3 Feet to the Left, you can strap into the 737's extra flight deck jumpseat and fly along with Korry on his journey in search of success that fulfills the spirit and completes the soul. Feel what it's like to push the limits of comfort zones while battling mechanical malfunctions in the flight simulator, thunderstorms in Mexico City, and blizzards in Chicago. Experience the challenges, insecurities, successes, and failures of a new leader who is stepping up and taking command in the high-stakes world of airline flying.
Are you a new leader taking command for the first time?
Are you trying to plot your course to success and fulfillment?
Are you unsure how to turn a challenge you're facing into a catapult for greater growth?
Is the success you have achieved unfulfilling?
