Itching to do more with your life than the norm? Craving freedom but struggling to know where to start?
Maybe you're looking at starting a starting a side-hustle, work for yourself or ... perhaps you've stumbled across the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) movement.
While I don't claim to have all the answers I have collected some resources to help you find your own freedom, whatever that looks like.
So, who am I?
I’m Cat LeBlanc. I’m a freedom-junkie. And a secret systems-nerd. A rebel? Perhaps. When something’s not working, I’m driven to find a better, more liberating way of getting stuff done.
I've had many iterations of finding my own version of freedom... volunteering in Brazil, moving to Germany, a career path aimed at finding a cushy yet well-paid role, a high pressure freelancing gig, an extremely brief attempt at network marketing (UGH), the wrong business, then the right business, and then after some financial gymnastics and lifestyle adjustments - semi-retirement.
Right now I do two things professionally.
As a Business Coach I help frustrated employees, almost-entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in the early stages take their first steps to freedom. I help them find their business idea and start a business that fits their personality so they can earn money on their own terms.
I'm also the Host of the soon to be released FIRED Podcast where I speak with incredible people around the globe about FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) and alternative lifestyle.
How I got here - the short version
I grew up in England wanting to learn languages, travel, and be free. All I wanted to do was surround myself with great people, enjoy an adventure-filled life and feel like I was on vacation all the time. I absolutely do not believe in fifty weeks of working yourself into the ground and two weeks off a year.
Initially, I was a part of the corporate world. After studying Economics at University I decided to work in IT. I moved to Germany, where I made amazing friends, had a beautiful apartment built, six weeks holiday a year and lots of that sought after freedom to explore and travel. But I hated doing work I didn’t care about. Clearly something had to change.
I emigrated to Australia, where I was inspired to start my own business and with that inspiration I quit my job and dove into the most intense learning phase of my life.
I built my first successful business within six months. From idea to first sale took three months, but in my hurry to get started I made a classic newbie error - I didn't truly consider whether the business I had chosen would make me happy.
In the second phase of my business career I spent (and spend) my working days guiding future entrepreneurs through the creative process of brainstorming ideas, validating and building and growing businesses that support the amazing lives they want to live.
And do I feel like I am on holiday most of the time? Absolutely!
I fulfilled a childhood dream of owning a house in the jungle and I can see parrots from my lounge room window. I have a wonderful partner and we spend our days breathing in the fresh mountain air, walking our beautiful puppy and cooking up a storm, thinking how good is this?!
It is pretty good, but what I really like is working in a field that genuinely helps people achieve their dreams. I love getting into the nitty-gritty, uncovering exciting plans, turning confusion into clarity and moving those dreams step by step closer to reality! For me, there really is nothing more satisfying.
