Falling in love with a new way of life with Lisbet Mellgren.

Lisbet is half Swedish and half Canadian and grew up in Sweden. She has always had an itch to travel, see the world and learn about new places. In 2008 Lisbet spent a lot of time travelling before moving to Canada where she ended up staying for four years. In 2012 it was time for her to leave and return to Sweden.

Lisbet quit her day job in Sweden and had a plan to go be a ski bum in Whistler. But one month before leaving she got a job offer to be the area manager for a Swedish ski company based in Fernie, British Columbia. She took the job and planned to go for a season. Little did she know that she would fall in love with a town the lifestyle and stay for four years.

Kate Williams - Inspired by the world to build a thriving wellness business.

Kate left New Zealand at 20 years old to study the world instead of going to university. What she learned was something that school could never teach, travel opened her eyes to a whole new way of seeing life. At 25 years old, Kate found herself (on the Gold Coast) booking a last minute, one way ticket to Melbourne, triggered by what she claims to be a 'quarter life crisis' on the search to find a "good" job. After a year or so in the corporate world, feeling like a square peg in a round hole, Kate set off on an adventure again. Kate has not moved home to New Zealand but knows how it feels to move into many different situations. Now residing in Torquay, VIC, she has found a way to feel at home and has since created a business, Retreat Yourself Box, designed to encourage and inspire people to lead fulfilled lives.
