Sam Laliberte has been designing her lifestyle from scratch for almost a decade. She’s a serial entrepreneur, motivational speaker, enthusiastic emcee and host of the Freedom Lifestyle Podcast where she interviews digital nomads, remote workers, freelancers and entrepreneurs who’ve pursued a career that provides freedom over their schedule, location, and finances. Sam helps unlock people’s potential to design their own liberated lifestyle and has herself built a multi six-figure business while working from dozens of countries around the world and for less than 30 hours of work / week.

Sam created the Freedom Lifestyle community after finding herself unexpectedly unemployed when a dream job fell through. She believes that in so many cases failure and achievement are just two different paths that lead toward the same successful outcome. Sometimes the journey involves discovering what isn’t working, and that is exactly how she found herself with no job, no income, and completely open to forge her own path. She decided to embrace flexible work, through freelancing, to gain direction for her next move. This is when the Freedom Lifestyle community and content series was born, bringing tens of thousands of freedom seekers along for the journey – one that started with modest beginnings but quickly scaled to a sustainable business and life of limitless possibilities.

Many people want to be self-employed and live the “freedom lifestyle” but everything has a business idea of a mindset that tolerates risk. Sam teaches people the quickest and safest route to freedom by leveraging flexible work arrangements such as freelance, the gig economy, remote work, digital nomadism, passive income and online revenue channels! Sam has immersed herself in the Freedom Lifestyle movement and successfully built a multiple-six-figures business through various revenue streams: teaching online courses, working as a remote consultant, managing her own podcasting agency and operating an e-commerce store. Sam does this all from her laptop, traveling annually to countries like Costa Rica, Portugal, South Africa, Italy and more! Sam boasts that she rarely works more than 30 hours per week, leaving ample time for adventurous hobbies like highlining across mountains, learning new languages or spending quality time with her loved ones. She’s now on a mission to help other freedom seekers leverage flexible work arrangements to design their own liberated lifestyles.

Sam has partnered with global brands such as BossBabe, WeWork, Fiverr and Bumble and her work has been featured in Elle Magazine, SirusXM, Women Who Freelance, Nomadic Matt and countless freedom focused podcasts. She’s spoken at national conferences like Social Media Week, LEAP for Business, UpLift for Women and dozens of virtual summits. Each week on the Freedom Lifestyle podcast she shares valuable lessons from her own journey, proven action plans that her audience can repeat and stories of relatable people who chose alternative career paths to design their own freedom lifestyle. Sam has a homebase in Squamish, BC where she lives for ~6 months each year with her husband and bengal cat. From Sam, you can learn to live a life that’s courageously authentic and on your own terms.
