Life Without A Tie

Tune into The Original Loretta Brown Show, Thursday, April 20 at 8 a.m. (repeats Monday at 6 a.m.) as welcomes Ray Martin!

The global launch of “Life Without A Tie” on 1st November marks a writing debut for a former award-winning business leader, traveler and fund-raiser Ray Martin. His beautifully written, open-hearted, and courageous book chronicles a fourteen-year journey of reinvention he undertook from 2005-2019 and, more importantly, the lessons learned and wisdom gained from the journey.During the first three or four years, he explored Asia, discovered Vipassana retreats and meditation, and developed a mindfulness practice. These helped him develop a set of guiding principles in the book. Further tours of Europe and America enabled him to continue his learning. After four years, his inner wisdom guided him to start a Foundation. By chance, he met a six-times marathon runner who offered to help him train and complete a marathon to kick-start his fundraising efforts for an elephant sanctuary in Thailand and an orphanage in Nepal. Ray ran his first marathon (aged 49) in New York in 2009 and raised over $15,000. He’s run four more since then, raising around $50,000.In the stories you’ll find in “Life Without A Tie,” Ray vividly shares what happened and the insights and wisdom from these random, unpredictable series of events that took him through twenty-eight countries.Although this book is a story, Ray has left plenty of pauses throughout the text so that the reader has time to reflect on each step, so they have a chance to explore the truth for themselves about similar situations they may find themselves in. “My mission is to use this story to guide and encourage others to live bravely and make bold decisions that bring deep joy and happiness,” says Ray, aka The Daily Explorer. Bernadette Russell, who regularly appears on BBC programs, kindly wrote the foreword and endorses that message. She says “Ray’s book contains the jewels he’s brought back to the village.”
