I have had the pleasure of knowing the Beekman Boys for the past couple of years. If you don’t know who the Beekman Boys are, you are missing out. I first discovered Josh and Brent when they were struggling to earn a living and keep their farm. They had a television show called The Fabulous Beekman Boys. It was on for a few seasons and it truly was fabulous!
After the show ended, they participated in CBS’s The Amazing Race. For weeks, they traveled the world, competing against other teams with puzzles, challenges, and physical tasks. I watched each week cheering them on, loving the fact that they were kind, helpful, and generous throughout the entire competition. They were refreshing to watch on reality t.v. In the end, they won the million dollars, paid off the mortgage on the farm, and vowed to pay it forward, which they continue to do in many ways. You can learn more about their efforts and become inspired on their website.
I always have a chance to connect at Country Living Magazine Fairs with Josh and Brent. I was thrilled when we met again in Atlanta last year and they were excited for me and my book. Of course, it wasn’t out yet back then but they were excited to share my book on their website.
This past week, they shared my book with their readers and followers. I am so grateful for their support and encouragement and I wanted to write this post as a thank you to them for all the encouragement and words of wisdom they have shared with me over the years.
