How to Design Your Ideal Life: Freedom Planning with Natalie Sisson
I read the other day that the average person in the United States lives for 27,375 days — and a lot of that time will be spent sleeping and working. So, if you’re 25, you have about 18,000 days left to live; if you’re 50, around 9,000 days; and if you’re 65, you have a little more than 3,500 days left to live. There is no time to waste.
This year on the Postcard Academy podcast, in addition to talking about travel and food and culture, I’ll also interview lifestyle experts, authors, and others who can help us live our best lives during our brief time on this Earth. To start us off, I’m incredibly happy to share my conversation with Natalie Sisson, author of the bestselling book The Suitcase Entrepreneur and The Freedom Plan, and ‘chief freedomist’ of her own company.
Listen to my entire conversation with Natalie — and learn how to design your own freedom plan — on the Postcard Academy podcast. (subscribe here for free).
On the podcast episode with Natalie, we:
talk through her ‘perfect day’ exercise (have you given much thought to what your perfect day would look like? are you trying to live this, or are you on auto pilot when you wake up?);
discuss jobs that are great for people who want to live a freedomist lifestyle;
break down the steps you need to take to start living a more intentional life;
share how to build freedom breaks into your day; and more.
Natalie kindly offered to share her 1-page business plan. Now’s the time to make the move. How many days do you have left?
