How to Run Away From Home

Adam Dailey

Perhaps you’ve dreamed of escaping the stress of your everyday routine by taking a year off to explore the world with your loved ones. Maybe you’ve thought about changing your life but dismissed it as impossible. It’s not. The Dailey family did it, and Adam is here to show you how to take the plunge and stop making excuses.

Adam Dailey’s history as a professional athlete, entrepreneur, sports marketer and speaker has shown that he’s always followed his passion. When he put his professional life on hold to take a twelve month “family sabbatical,” the future of his business was uncertain and his young school-aged son was struggling with a sensory disorder. But instead of waiting for a “right time” that might never come, Adam, his wife, and their four small children set off on an epic global trek.

How to Run Away From Home is an essential how-to guide as well as a fascinating tale that includes castles, narrowly avoiding Brazilian prison, and swimming with dolphins. Dailey supplies all you’ll need for your own successful sabbatical—from how to plan and finance it to schooling on the road to dealing with the unexpected and managing obligations back home.

There are risks, but the rewards are enormous. All it takes is spontaneity, flexibility, and the courage to take the leap!

Press & Praise

Randy Cohen, Author, Ticket to the Limit

"Adam Dailey is a kind hearted visionary who plans his work and works his plan. Having four kids and a wife has not stopped him from traveling the world, learning, growing and living. I have enjoyed watching his story unfold as he has taken his family to Olympic, World Cup and international events exploring the cultures that have helped him become the man he is today. Thanks for sharing your story Adam and for not being afraid to take chances."

BrianBrault, Global Chairman, Entrepreneur Organization (EO)

"Living life to its fullest takes a willingness to make bold moves. Adam Dailey has more than a willingness. He teaches us all to seize opportunity, get rid of excuses and grab life by the horns. What an amazing way to teach children to be confident, make the most of everyday and live life. I hope this book inspires more people to live an extraordinary life."

John Helmick, CEO, Gorilla Capital

"I was not surprised when Adam announced he was taking his family with him to Australia, but I was surprised to learn that this trip was to be a one year sabbatical. A bit unconventional, but Adam has always been successful by approaching business and life in unconventional ways. His approach to family and travel is revolutionary."
