Tyler's Parachute Never Opened, But His Life Did

Tyler Farnham is a world traveler, international lifeguard, and public speaker.

In one year, he achieved that goal. Still learning and still growing, Tyler shares the stories of his own personal development through visualization and motivation using surfing, yoga, meditation as tools for happiness, self-discipline, and emotional growth.  Tyler's new book, Journals From Cloud 9, was released in April of 2020, along with his second edition Reaching Cloud 9.
