Today’s episode is for those of you that either have your own business or dream of having a business or career that gives you freedom, fulfilment and allows you to do the things you love in life.
Because in today’s episode I dive deep into conversation with Marianne Cantwell, author of the bestselling ‘Be a Free Range Human - escape the 9-5, create a life you love and still pay the bills’. 

A book which has been so successful in helping people change their lives and create careers  they love since it was published five years ago, that it has now been relaunched with a shiny new cover and more importantly some incredible new content. 
I’ve been lucky enough to have worked with Marianne on and off for over a decade, running courses together that help people to create careers and businesses that they love.
As a result Marianne and her free range approach to business and life have had a truly profound impact on my own life and career. Hers is the book that I recommend to anyone that is wanting to create a career that gives them freedom, whether that is freedom to travel, freedom to be at home with the kids more or freedom to choose when they work and how they work. 
So make yourself a cup of tea and settle in for a brilliant conversation packed with insight and wisdom from Marianne and a whole lot of enthusiasm from me!
And if you haven’t already got your copy of the second edition of Be a Free Range Human, then head on over to and order it today!

141: Be a Free Range Human—Busting Business Myths with Marianne Cantwell

Pivot with Jenny Blake
Episode artwork
Read more
I’ve been a big fan of Marianne’s writing, Be a Free Range Human, since my
earliest days as a solopreneur; and in fact, she crossed my radar when my
blog was just a budding baby side-hustle, but we hadn’t connected in
real-time until this conversation.

A longtime advocate for going your own way in life and work, Marianne
shares where many solopreneurs go wrong: leaving a suffocating,
one-size-fits-all corporate environment just to feel equally penned in by a
box of their own making with shoulds from the self-employment space.

In this episode, you’ll learn how to identify your Free Range Style, and
why it is a big blind spot for many entrepreneurs. In fact, it’s one of the
biggest detriments to the health and success of your business to go against
your Free Range Style, even though many best practices would have you
inadvertently doing just that!

475: Make Your Wierdness Your Edge & Be A Free Range Human With Marianne Cantwell

As Told By Nomads
Episode artwork
Read more

Today's interview is with Marianne Cantwell. Marianne is an author, speaker and mentor now but a decade ago she was a corporate-cage human who definitely needed out.    

After watching too many days go by when she was cooped inside staring out the window (feeling like she had to leave a big part of herself at the door in order to get paid), she finally quit her job and went free range.     

Not because she had some grand mission to ‘dominate the world’… but because she genuinely wanted to create an own boss ‘career’ where she got to feel like her – where she could work when, where and how she wanted, write her own ‘job description’ – and live a life that felt right every day.  

This philosophy is what underpins Free Range Humans today: a movement with 20,000 people, online courses and events, and one bestselling book, they have worked with thousands of people to find their thing and bring it to life – as them.
