Sometimes you take a trip. Sometimes the trip takes you.
After college, Eric Saperston bought a vintage yellow Volkswagen Bus, took his Golden Retriever Jack, and set off on a cross country trip to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen.
Challenged by his mentor to make the trip more meaningful, he decided to call up the some of the most successful leaders and visionaries in the world and ask them out for a cup of coffee.
What started out as a personal journey to find the answers to life’s biggest questions: Why am I here? How can I find happiness? What is success? Quickly, turned into something bigger than Eric ever imagined. Walt Disney Pictures turned his adventure’s into an award winning film!

With a laptop, journal, video camera, and an uncanny ability to not take ‘no personally’, Eric began documenting his adventures.
The Journey, as its known, is a celebration of Eric’s conversations with captains of industry, global leaders, and iconic visionaries studying the common traits, motivating, factors and guiding principles which enable everyday people to live extraordinary lives.
“This movie is absolutely amazing. I have never been effected by a movie like I was after viewing this. I laughed, I cried, I thought long and hard about myself and where I was going in my life. I recommend this to everyone I talk to!
