[227] Is 2016 The Year of Lifestyle or Serious Business?

Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 6 comments

The first few weeks of the New Year are often when you’ll find yourself contemplating where the last year went to, and more importantly how you want this year to turn out.

227 CoverIt’s that interesting place of introspection mixed with excitement and opportunity and if you’ve done your 2015 Annual Review like I did here, you should be much clearer on what you want out of 2016.

Specifically you should know what you’re now capable of, what goals you can set and actually achieve and how you can improve on your business and personal results from last year.

If you still need a hand with that be sure to check out my latest interview with Natalie MacNeil on How to Conquer your World in 2016.

But if you’re ready to truly take it up a notch in 2016 then the first Fresh in Fifteen episode of the year is definitely for you. It’s a little different than normal (and it’s definitely longer than 15 minutes) but I trust you’ll find it immensely useful.

You see, I caught up with my good friend Sean Ogle, a fellow lifestyle entrepreneur who shares my outlook on life and has a very similar business model to mine.

Sean is the Founder of Location Rebel.  In 2009, he quit his job and moved to Thailand. Now, he helps people build businesses they can run from anywhere in the world via his sites Location 180 and Location Rebel.

We had a jam session on Skype to catch up on how our 2015s turned out and what we had in store this year. He kindly let me record the conversation which is ultimately what you’ll get to hear today – a kind of behind the scenes on how we plan out our years and what types of things we entrepreneurs discuss.

It got really interesting and so I thought it would be beneficial to share it with you, glean what you need from it and apply what you learn from our threads of discussion to your own situation.

In this ‘behind the scenes’ chat with Sean, you’ll hear us talk about :

  • Outsourcing yourself
  • Scaling your business model
  • Looking at what is important in life
  • Learning to say no
  • Our marketing plans for the year
  • How it feels to not have a suitcase anymore
  • And much, much more!

This is my favorite podcast about online entrepreneurship. Natalie interviews dynamic and inspiring folks who have figured out how to turn their passions into lucrative and satisfying businesses. The interviews are in-depth enough to provide some solid and useful tips and information, but just short enough to make it doable to give it a listen without taking up too much time. I love her approach and I’ve already learned so much from this podcast. Two big thumbs up from me!


Instagrams from Freedom Fighters listening in – yes that’s YOU

In my podcast I’m asking you to tag me on Instagram (also works on Twitter) @nataliesisson with a picture of where you’re listening to me in the world. Then I can feature you here and share the love.

    I like this… Letting us listen in on great conversation. It is important for all of us to realize and know that there will always be shifts and changes. It’s important to allow ourselves to flow with it. Thank you.

    • So glad you enjoyed it Jen. It is important indeed to know when to shift and what to focus on. No business model should ever be static and opportunities are always there to be explored

    Hi Natalie, I love your idea for your 2016 content calendar; separating your content into monthly themes is brilliant. Good luck executing. You will find those people you’re looking for and things will fall into place just fine. Sounds like you have a good plan there, with some wiggle room for flexibility. 🙂
