The Inside Hustle: A Mystical Misfit’s Travel Adventure Into The Unknown
by Joanna Walden
Living through 9/11 in New York, Joanna Walden experienced a moment of clarity, which propelled her to search for something greater than her 9-5 existence. Leaving her high-flying career on Madison Avenue behind her, she hikes the Camino de Santiago through Spain beginning the comedy of errors in her search for both purpose and a greater truth.
Journeying around the globe, Joanna climbs Mount Kilimanjaro, imbibes plant medicine, consults energy healers and shamans, determined to solve the problem of herself. After the death of her father, she swaps her Brazilian boyfriend for a Brazilian girlfriend, eventually finding answers right on her doorstep back home in New Zealand.
It’s sex, drugs & spirituality; an unconventional path from dark to light, and a modern version of personal evolution.
This transformational travel adventure takes you on a wild ride, as entertaining as it is enlightening. Are you ready to unlock the truth of who you really are?
“I couldn’t put it down! Walden’s story is a no holds barred honest, and often hilarious exploration of one woman’s search for her true self. She’s a kiwi Cheryl Strayed.” Ann Glamuzina, Author of Rich Man Road.
“Your book took me on an incredible journey. Into my biggest fears and my greatest weaknesses. It took me with you, into the light, the shadows, and everything in between. All a reminder of who we really are - perfectly imperfect. And that we actually DO know that we are enough. Thank you Joanna. Your book is refreshingly (and often brutally) honest. You have spoken out loud that which humanity needs to hear.” Cate Newton, Strategic Leadership Expert
“An uplifting tale of bubbles and bruises on the rocky road of self-discovery. Jo walks the hard yards so that we don’t have to.” Claire Chitham, Actor.
