This book is a call to action based on one simple concept – that personal freedom is a choice. Beth Kempton went from being a life-loving, risk-taking adventurer to a grown-up, settled down, mother-wife-business owner, before realizing the life she had built was suffocating her. She set out to find her personal freedom, and, along the way, discovered that many others were also feeling hemmed in, suffering from anxiety, depression and physical pain, exhausted, disconnected, and sad. Beth knew she had to share her path to freedom with others, so that they too could liberate their lives and find joy and fulfilment.
Freedom Seeker is a collection of all the wisdom, techniques and steps that took Beth to freedom. It shows how to make the most of the extraordinary time we are living in, where technology offers new ways to live, work, learn and connect with each other. It's a very current manual for living more and worrying less. It is a timely self-empowerment manifesto: an inspiring and practical manual that will enable you to recognize that freedom is a choice, and that you have the power to make that choice and create the life you want.
Full of personal stories of those who have taken the journey to freedom, this honest, courageous and touching book will take your breath away. It also includes a host of original, transformational tools to help the reader escape their cage and learn to soar.
