Meet your Retreat Leader
I'm Natalie Sisson, a New Zealand entrepreneur, author, speaker, host of the ‘Untapped’ podcast and triathlete and I adore teaching women entrepreneurs the right mindset, habits and strategies to lead an exceptional life.
My special sauce is helping you identify how to monetise ALL of you to create multiple streams of income and impact.
After ditching a successful corporate career and co-founding a technology company, in 2010 I decided to monetize my humble, 6-month old blog, The Suitcase Entrepreneur, into a multiple-six figure online education platform.
I've turned that content and knowledge into up to 8 different revenue streams including digital products, quarter of a million dollar course launches, results focused workshops, international retreats, and business coaching.
These days, I'm passionate about helping others leverage their unique set of skills, knowledge, and experience to earn a living and make an impact from anywhere, simply by being them.
"It’s amazing what you can achieve and create when you are surrounded by talented, passionate and supportive entrepreneurs for 5 days!”
"I generally find it really hard to take the time away from my business to do the planning and strategy work I know I need to do to really take my business to the next level. And so the freedom retreat gave me that space to really put in place some strategic plans for my business.
It has already paid off as it helped me get really clear on the direction I want my business to head in. Taking the time out to plan and create was invaluable and I’m super excited about where I can take my business this year with what I was able to learn and implement.
One of the things that made this retreat different was the amazing connection I made so quickly with the other participants and I think this is facilitated by Natalie friendly, open, and always supportive nature."
