• GENEVA FREEDOM CHALLENGES 14th Edition! (We are back! :D)

    Parc de La Perle du Lac

    YOUHOUUU GENEVA FREEDOM CHALLENGES IS BACK! For a last summer! As a reminder : --> Our goal is to have even more fun in Geneva, to challenge each other through social freedom challenges, to talk about freedom, to take more risks in life, to stop fearing what people think of us, take life a bit less seriously and feel completely freeee, like anything is possible, and grow together as group of awesome individuals! ---- We tend to attract very kind and respectful human beings that are amazing listeners, very empathetic, patient, open-minded, and know how to keep a beautiful atmosphere and we would love to keep the energy of this group as it is, full of positivity, love and FUN! <3. ----- Soooo let’s rewind a bit (for those of you who don’t know about the meetup!). I started to organize those meetups two years ago when - after living in London - I came back to Geneva with my head full of dreams and of course : lots of fears. I wanted to : - create my own successful business - become a full time digital nomad - write, speak, share, create! - impact the world So I thought « Wouldn’t it be fun to create a meetup where we talk about FREEDOM, and challenge each other to overcome our fears? » And that’s how the meetup was born! During those meetups we : - Did awkward/awesome exercises to connect with strangers - Shared deep vulnerable stuff (you’ll see it’s the best! :p ) - Created a Genevan Wish tree! - Asked strangers to help us with our dreams - Organized a talent show - Danced - Swam in the lake - Ate - Drank and party until late (if the vibe was good!) Not to mention: - Lots of friendships (and some romance ;)) were born from those - And all the laughs we had! (At this point people usually tell me those meetups look like a cult - I swear it’s not haha! - or it's the best cult EVER :p Just lots of fun and real connection :) ) I’m happy to say that during those two years I did create my online business (you can check it out here : https://www.lauranathalie.com ) and that I will soon become a full-time digital nomad so that might very well be my last summer in Geneva for a while. But we had SO MUCH FUN in those meetups the past two summers that I decided to organize one last round! So.... If you’d like to connect with other amazing humans and you are an empathetic - spontaneous - fun - respectful - crazy dreamer yourself, feel free to join! I usually write a program with the activities (you know how I’m gonna make sure we all get out of our confort zones this time), but for now I’ll just leave it there and decide later. We meet at 2pm in front of the restaurant « La Perle du Lac », wait 10min then find a spot on the grass not far from there. Please bring: - Your swimsuit (if you want to swim!) - Food and drinks - An open-mind and your positive energy! I look forward to meeting you all! Lots of love, Laura

It’s a night where creators, entrepreneurs, artists, business-owners and any inspiring human (we ALL are !) can come on stage and share an inspiring/vulnerable story about their journey !

If that sounds like something you would LOVE to join, book your tickets here, the cost is 10CHF: https://genevainspirationalnights.eventbrite.com (You can also pay at the door but even though the room is bigger than last time, the seats are still limited!) Program : 19h : Ice-Melting Game (Way better than Ice-breaking haha) 19h10 : Introduction 19h15 : Networking Game for humans who hate the word Networking :p 19h45 : Speaker 1 (coming soon) 19h55 : "From sickness to impactful business" with Dominique-Cécile, Beautician and Therapist 20h05 : "How not to fail at relationships (when living in Geneva!)" with Romnea, finance woman by day, blogger by night 20h15 : "How to use forces beyond our control to transform our lives and live our dreams" with Caroline Verdier, Fast & Intense transformational coach 20h25 : Speaker 5 (One of you!) 20h30 : CRAZY DANCE (I promise it’s really fun) 20h35 : Connection Time ! 21h00 : THE END If you want to speak, please write me at [masked] with the topic of your talk, and the link to your website if you have one. Also if you feel like your english is not good enough, don’t worry : I’m a native french speaker and mine is far from perfect (I’m sure there is a lot of mistakes in this event description haha), but I chose english because it has the power to bring many humans together. So If you’re ready for some MAGIC in your life, feel free to join ! It is up to us to make it extraordinary. Lots of love, Laura (If you prefer to pay the 10 chf at the entrance it's also possible! :) ) P.S. : I created a Facebook page since I would love to organize those nights at least one a month, feel free to follow/like it ! https://www.facebook.com/Geneva-Inspirational-Nights-2385049498385431

  • GENEVA FREEDOM CHALLENGES 9th ! Goodbye Winter, Welcome Spring Edition !

    Wow guys. I can’t believe one year has passed since we first started to organize the meetup. I tried to convince myself to organize it in the winter, but I think winter is a time to pause and think while spring is the perfect time for new begginnings ! I was thinking about all the beautiful moments we had last year and I’m so very very excited to start this meetup again. I am also looking forward to meeting new amazing open minded people here in Geneva ! So for those who have never joined us before, we would love to meet you ! As a reminder : --> Our goal is to have even more fun in Geneva, to challenge each other through social freedom challenges, to talk about freedom, to take more risks in life, to stop fearing what people think of us, take life a bit less seriously and feel completely freeee, like anything is possible, and grow together as group of awesome individuals! ---- We tend to attract very kind and respectful human beings that are amazing listeners, very empathetic, patient, open-minded, and know how to keep a beautiful atmosphere and we would love to keep the energy of this group as it is, full of positivity and love! <3. ----- I’m not sure we always respect the first description haha, but we always have fun, we always enjoy the time together, we all share the value of freedom and we always respect each other. SOOOOO enough blabla, here is the program for the official first meetup of 2018 ! 1) RECAP : Small of what happened last year and introduction of the meetup. 2) INTRO : Small introduction of everyone. 3) ICE-BREAKER : Ice-breaking connection game (you know you loveee this one !) 4) TALKING TO STRANGERS : We go around the parc to invite strangers to participate in the next activity. Of course you don’t have to do it^^ 5) GOODBYE WINTER FIRE : We’ll all write on piece of paper what we would like to let go from last year, from the recent months. Feelings, experience, doubts, anything that holds you back from freedom and happiness. Once written down, we’ll make a big fire together (i mean, respectable size in an acceptable location so people don’t call the police haha) and we’ll throw it in the fire. You can tell the others what it is or keep it to yourself ☺ 6) CHILL TIME !! (and maybe make a beautiful wish tree but not sure yet, let’s see how we feel !) Bring food, tea, beer, wine, whatever makes you feel cosy and warm and happy ! SOOOO ARE YOU ALL IN ?? ;) Lots of love, Laura

So I wasn’t sure wether to do a meetup or not because of the rain BUT let’s do it anyway ! :D Last time we did an awesome exercice where we all had to say : 1) A dream we have 2) Any obstacles that we think prevents it so that everyone can help us overcome it. The idea came from the awesome Barbarar Sher, (feel free to check out her ted talk here ! watch it until the end, it’s worth it :p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2rG4Dg6xyI) Last time we only had time for a few people but the results were amazing !
