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.
