Natalie Sisson's Quest For Freedom - Experiments In Personal, Financial, Physical, Business, Relationship And Financial Freed


After 7 years of being obsessed with freedom, bestselling author, TEDx speaker and Chief Adventurer of the multiple six-figure business 'The Suitcase Entrepreneur', Natalie Sisson realised even though she had finally earned a ton of freedom, she didn't truly understand what it meant. So in 2017 she is embarking on a Quest for Freedom, designed to help her, and you, discover what freedom really means. She's taking a business sabbatical, and putting all her years experience of coaching others to build freedom businesses, into the hands of her small but talented team, her systems and sales funnels, to see if they will stand the test of time, so that Natalie can fire herself from her business in April. Join Natalie on her year of becoming a student of life. Each season she'll experiment with a new facet of freedom including personal, physical, relationship and financial freedom, with herself as the guinea pig. Full details at

This might sound scary or even untrue for you, right?I don't mean though, that you necessarily have had a deeply distressing or disturbing experience in life, because for some that's not the case.Trauma, for each of us looks different. For myself I have always been amazed at strong, brave entrepreneurs that have overcome this huge event in their life, to go on and achieve great success in business and beyond.But what about those of us who have had relatively 'normal' childhoods, that have also gone on to achieve our own success.Often without even realising it, those that fit into this category will have at some point experienced trauma, that can be found at the root cause of our own inner critic, or the voice behind our imposter syndrome. For Mia Hewett it wasn't until she was in her thirties (with a multi-million dollar business and family of her own under her belt already), when she found herself struggling under the w
