Adopted children raised in scarcity, even if adopted into secure loving homes, continue to hoard half eaten apples under their beds or binge on meals thinking there won't be any more coming. Can you relate?
When we daydreamed about, stumbled upon or leapt into entrepreneurship, never did we ever declare, "When I grow up, I want to be sooooo busy that I end up in the hospital!"
Yet, in our fast paced, comparison prone culture, as we attempt to navigate business, we often get swept up by busyness, the illusion that if we just do more (even if it's random and unnecessary), we will be worth more... in the eyes of others.
This lesson guides founders, overachievers, trailblazers and entrepreneurs on:
- how to shift your relationship with time and
- how to set your business up for success by creating more free time.
So I wonder what the telling of a Liberator's Journey would look like... From thousands of conversations, interviews and coaching sessions with our tribe of women founders, overachievers and trailblazers, this is what I've discovered :O
Last week, I wrote about Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey and how it fits with lifestyle freedom for us globetrotting overachieving women freedompreneurs.
My mind understood his model, but my heart knew something was missing. I found THE missing piece when a coaching colleague posted a quote from Maureen Murdock's The Heroine's Journey. Boom!
Do you know Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey? I've been on this loopy loop many times when I moved to Rwanda, uprooted my entire life to NYC in 7 days, took my coaching business to 16 countries in 16 weeks...
When you convert strangers into clients, it's a hit or miss. It's a binary relationship: yay or nay. Most of the time, it's a nay.

I lined up 5 interviews in 5 days in NYC. On day 5 I, got a job offer, found an apartment, flew home on day 6, packed and moved my life to NYC on day 7. No faffin' around!
