Doejo attends ‘The Leapyear Project’ launch party

On Monday night the Doejo crew headed over to The Library at Guilt Bar to support our friend Victor Saad, who just released his book “The Leapyear Project.” Saad’s full-color book isn’t just any coffee table book, but a collection of inspiration and passion.

  3. Saad’s book centers around the idea of taking a leap of faith to do something you love. In 2012, the last leap year, Saad took the leap and traveled around the world, apprenticing and gaining experiences from 214 “leapers.” 
  4. During the launch, Saad hopped on a chair and thanked friends, leapers and his biggest fan — his mom. Saad highlighted all of the late nights spent working on the book, the multiple rounds of editing and traveling the world to complete his “most meaningful project.”


    “Tonight is to celebrate that leaping is creating something of value,” he said.

Then he’ll leave you standing at wide open road of possibilities and challenge you to take the next step (or “leap,” I suppose) on your own journey.”
