There are many ways to build a creative business, but how do you make sure you also create a life that works for your health and happiness? In today's show, Marianne Cantwell talks about how to be a free-range human and also gives some tips on updating a non-fiction book for a Second Edition. In […]
Hey welcome to another episode of Escape The Rat Race Radio, my name is Christian Rodwell and this week my guest is Marianne Cantwell, Author of ‘Be A Free Range Human’.
In 2013 she published a book titled ‘Be A Free Range Human: Escape the 9-5, Create a life you love and still pay the bills’. Unbeknown to her at the time, but this book would go on to become an international best seller, having since been translated into multiple languages, and propel Marianne into the spotlight alongside the likes of other pioneering career change experts such as Tim Ferriss, Author of ‘The 4 Hour Work Week’
In 2017 Marianne stepped onto the TED stage to deliver a TedX talk titled ‘The Hidden power of Not (Always) Fitting In’, which to date has been watched nearly 400k times, inspiring thousands to enrol in her courses which focus on finding your 'thing' (and making it work for you).
Her thinking has featured everywhere from Business Week and CBS MoneyWatch, to The Guardian and Entrepreneur magazine.
A corporate escapee herself, she now lives and works between several countries (often found between London and sunny California), and carries her business in an unexpectedly tiny laptop.
In today’s conversation you’ll hear Marianne talk about why there is a home for every personality and strength – it’s just a question of finding that home or creating it to fit you.
Starting from who you are is the pathway to a lot more ease, happiness and smoother success in what you do (rather than rushing into something that sounds like a good idea but in reality requires you to leave a piece of yourself at the door and squish your edges day after day).
I very much resonate with Marianne’s approach and I’m sure you’re going to as well.
OK Let’s do this! Let’s head on over to my conversation with Marianne Cantwell.
