#053: Let It Go! with Alisoun Mackenzie

#053: Let It Go! with Alisoun Mackenzie

Getting off the train of expectation.

Finding who we really are is often described as a journey and for Alisoun Mackenzie the voyage of discovery quite literally began when she was backpacking around the world, yet not in the way you might expect.

Alisoun is on a mission to help women enjoy a happier, more meaningful life that lights up their heart and makes a difference in a way that they are proud of. Her own personal search for meaning started with getting off a train.

The train of expectation.

Understanding, accepting and owning her mission has repeatedly required Alisoun to let go of expectation: both her own expectations of herself and the expectations of others.

In this inspirational yet intimate conversation, meaningful life guide, Alisoun Mackenzie, describes how letting go and surrendering to the process of life has inspired and created incredible opportunities to serve, undertaking humanitarian work with young genocide survivors in Rwanda, and leading teams of women who sponsor earthquake-resistant schools made of recycled plastic in Asia.

Having explored her own quest for meaning, Alisoun now helps other women to live a more meaningful life that leaves a legacy.

This episode is for anyone who is seeking more meaning in life and wants to learn more about living a life that is aligned to their personal truth.
