A Great Listen With Useful Advice & Info'

Inspirational for travel and life in general. Many online tools and pieces of kit are cited - good reference for getting geared up to travel or stay put.

I loved it!

I would pay twice over for this book. It has totally inspired me. Not only that it details resources that I never imagined existed. All in all I feel I have everything I need to move forward.

Just ok. A little disappointed.

It’s not bad, but i was expecting more specifics on business and not so focused on traveling.

A must have audio-book

Would you listen to The Suitcase Entrepreneur again? Why?

Totally, I have listened to the book a few times, each time picking up more ideas about an alternative working solution. Natalie reinforces how you don't need to be tied to the same place for living and for work in order to generate income.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Natalie was, she tells of her experience in a clear and honest fashion, she certainly wets the appetite for travelling and not being tied down to a dreary work environment.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I liked how she gives you very useful tools and resources for further research (chapter 10). Pretty much everything you need for the virtual lifestyle, also her website has a great resources page.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened in one sitting then to individual chapters while taking notes.

Any additional comments?

I work from home already which is great, next step is to take off in my camper van with my laptop etc, so I can combine work with hill walking, outdoor cooking, working on my first book and meeting new people while travelling around the UK.With all the technology and gadgets around, you can have your office all within your backpack !! Looking forward to having the open countryside as my office surroundings.Anybody who is fed up with nine to five working, being stuck in a job that gives you the Monday morning blues, then I would suggest getting the audio or physical book without delay. As Albert Einstein said - Insanity is "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"Keep up the good work Natalie.

A advertisement for her sponsors

Would you try another book from Natalie Sisson and/or Natalie Sisson?

No

What was most disappointing about Natalie Sisson’s story?

The endless plugs for sponsors who help finance her travel

What three words best describe Natalie Sisson’s performance?

Out of rat-race

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I respect Natalie's choice to explore the world rather than participate in the expected school-career-work for someone else timeline that we are often forced into by capitalist society.

Any additional comments?

Listening to the author read off a list of products and services that help the author finance her lifestyle was disappointing, after hearing an inspirational message of the possibility living life on one's own terms. Bottom line is that nothing is free.

The go-to guide for creating a freedom business!

Would you listen to The Suitcase Entrepreneur again? Why?

I absolutely loved this book. I have the ebook but loved the audio version too. There's such a wealth of information in here about so many aspects of entrepeneurship. Whatever you want to know about building a freedom business, Natalie has it covered here.

What did you like best about this story?

So many useful links - I was bookmarking like nobody's business!

Have you listened to any of Natalie Sisson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I'm a faithful Suitcase Entrepeneur podcast follower. But I still learnt loads from this audiobook - so much juicy wisdom, all in one place!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it's one to dive into over and over again, depending on where you're at in business.
