Esther Jacobs on #130: Find Your Freedom with a ‘No Excuses’ Philosophy

esther jacobs

Esther Jacobs is a digital nomad who uses her experiences to inspire other people to find their freedom by making their own opportunities.

She has given over 1000 keynote speeches and two TEDx talks inspired by her experience of raising over €16 million for charity with no previous experience.

Esther is entirely location independent, having been ‘fired’ from her home country of the Netherlands because of her nomadic lifestyle. Additionally, she has authored over 20 books including Light Your Fire, Without the Burnout. She has travelled to over 100 countries and has been knighted by the Dutch Queen.

Esther joins me today to dive into how she prioritises time over money in her life and why she feels driven to help others achieve freedom in their lives too.

She shares why she doesn’t have a strategic plan for her business but prefers to lean into change and allow it to develop into opportunity.

Esther also discusses her interest in energy management, why she feels it is essential to be aware of the flow of energy in how you plan your day, and why she likes to get her body moving on difficult days.

“Everyone should find freedom in their life – freedom to travel; freedom to chase dreams; freedom to be more you.”
