Lizzie Fouracre, a 33-year-old Brit with a sparkling personality. Lizzie was living the dream helping to manage a fast-growing technology company in London started by her brother Tim.

And while the pace of a technology start-up was exhilarating, over time she found herself wanting more from life. So she quit, packed up a tent and sleeping bag and decided take a six-week hike around Great Britain. And in a eureka moment at the top of a mountain in Wales, she decided to create a new venture called The Humble Retreat.

She brought on a partner — her mother Mandy Fouracre — to help manage this (the two are pictured above). Eighteen months later, this mother-daughter team couldn’t be happier working together.

As Lizzie said. I’ve done a lot of interesting sort of retreats and workshops, and things in my life where you’re, you know, self-development, or learning about yourself, or other people. But this was truly the most healing thing I have ever done, because it was a simple as me, a tent, and just like peace, it was total peace. And it was during that time that I had, you know, this light bulb, never had it in my life moment, that where I was… it was so clear what I needed to do.

For anyone who isn’t feeling fulfilled in their work, what advice would you give them about exploring a second act?

“I think when you’re in something that you don’t know is right for you, you also probably have a hobby or an interest that you know is amazing, you really enjoy. So, I think starting to hone in on those other interests that bring you joy, to start taking them a little bit more seriously, and maybe less of a sort of label of hobby or interest. There’s a lot of pressure, again, with society that you have to live this certain life, 9 to 5, or more than 9 to five, or you know, flogging yourself until you’re ill or have a breakdown”
