Welcome to Sojourn
A creative guide to work and travel for entrepreneurial women.
Inspiring female founder stories, business retreats and community.
The way we work and travel is changing, and living a location independent or nomadic lifestyle is no longer just a dream for many. From entrepreneurs to freelancers, we are seeing more people who are making the shift to creating this type of lifestyle for themselves. They see the benefits of being able to work from different locations, not just because it satisfies their desire to travel, but also because of the positive effects it can have from a business perspective. Creating new connections, being more creative and being able to tap into local business networks as you travel, are just some of the benefits to living and working in this way. Welcome to Sojourn, we are part of the movement, a community of entrepreneurial women who combine their love of travel with their work and life’s purpose.
DISCOVER, CONNECT, INSPIRE
Through our travel and lifestyle platform you will find city guides to help you explore some of the most exciting business hubs in Europe and beyond when you are on the move, as well as start up news, events and female founder stories coming out of these dynamic cities. Our vision is to create both an online resource for our readers, alongside in person dinners, workshops and socials where you can connect with likeminded women.
The Sojourn Mission
INSPIRE YOU – no matter where you are on the business journey it is inspiring to read the stories of other founders and entrepreneurs. Through Sojourn we give a platform to women to share their stories and insights into setting up and running a business. All the women we feature are leaders in their industries and trailblazers in their own right.
CONNECT YOU- by creating an online community we aim to support the women in it to make wider connections to help their own business journey. This is mirrored through our Sojourn retreats which create an opportunity to build relationships with other founders and women in business.
SUPPORT YOU –whether you travel regularly or live a completely location independent lifestyle, our city guides give you the low down on the work/travel essentials in key destinations. You will find recommendations on everything from co working spaces to local business clubs, places were you can inspired, take a yoga class or enjoy that Friday night cocktail.
Our Founder and Editor
The idea for Sojourn came to me after a period of being location independent and running my PR consultancy at the same time. I met lots of likeminded women in the same situation who were managing to combine their passion for travel whilst growing successful businesses, and it opened my eyes to a whole new way of living and working. I wanted to create a platform where I could share their stories, highlighting the thriving female founder communities that exist and the talented women that are launching amazing business ideas. To support this it was important to also create a real life community were these women can connect and forge relationships with each other as they travel. Discover, Connect, Inspire are at the heart of our mission.
