Along our journey to becoming Awesome Lifestyle Designers, we’ve definitely done a lot of reading, research, watching videos, etc to discover lifestyle designers who made it to the lifestyle design party before we did. It’s really an amazing and eclectic group of people – most of whom are super whip smart.
One of those people is Natalie Sisson from The Suitcase Entrepreneur. Natalie is a Kiwi (originally from New Zealand) and takes her business with her while traveling all over the world. While now based just 3 hours down the road in Portland, Oregon, Sisson is constantly on the move – but keeping in close contact with her “Freedom Fighters” through her blog and podcast.
The Suitcase Entrepreneur podcast is one of the best in the biz and Natalie conducts great interviews with fantastic guests. You will especially want to listen to episode 99, which I just listened to today, when Sisson interviews Greg Denning from Discover, Share, Inspire. Greg and his wife Rachel now have 6 children and have lived in many different countries, driving from the US to Costa Rica to Alaska and are now back in Costa Rica.
I was super impressed with Greg, his story and what he and Rachel do to raise their children a new, right, way. Along the way, they manage to makes others lives better in so many ways – take for example their Mayan Eco Homestead project in Guatemala.
While we have not yet met either Natalie Sisson or Greg Denning, I have a feeling that we will and regardless, they have become unwitting mentors to us on our quest to become Awesome Lifestyle Designers.
