Most of us grew up with the ‘you can’t have it all’ mentality. And as a girl or woman, this mindset is even worse.
I remember some defining moments in my youth. When I turned 10 years old I wanted a go-kart for my birthday. My 2 older nephews had one, and we used it in the woods, to slide down the small hills and sandy paths. I loved it! I didn’t get the go-kart. Because: that was for boys. I asked for it, but never got it.
I remember a day in high school, just turned 15 years old. Our class was split up in 2. The boys went to the cool part of the school, the classroom where you can do the woodwork, the welding, the sawing, the hammering. You know cool stuff. The girls were sent to the needlework classroom, for stitching, knitting, crochet. You know the less cool stuff. There was 1 other girl, red-haired, who disagreed with this school decision based on our genders. We did not accept it and went to the principal’s office and complained. The week after we joined the boys in their cool classroom and left the girls with their needlework. This felt like a victory.
I remember a day in my first real fulltime job. I had been working there for at least a whole year when the company merged. That meant new salaries and new job titles. That day I found out that all men had higher salaries than the women. I was shocked.
All life events proved to me that women have to fight harder. And I did. Not on a political level, but on a more practical level. Just walking the talk and stepping up to become a role model.
It is my dream to surround myself with 1500 Freedom Entrepreneurs, embarking our ‘own’ cruise ship. Sailing the ocean, enjoying life, talking about our businesses, our life journeys, about growth, about our legacy.
The 2019 cruise is the start of something bigger. We will start with 100 action taking entrepreneurs. They can feel the vibe of this amazing experience and will probably book again next year. People will start talking about it, FOMO will kick in and next thing you know: all cabins are filled. Filled with entrepreneurs who want to have an impact on the world. Who want to become millionaires. Who take their responsibility. 80% of them are female entrepreneurs. I am on a mission to give more women access to more money. Changing the world costs money.
Are you with me on this mission?
Are you with me on this cruise?
Then, let’s do this together!
We can have it all!
I loved the Freedom Entrepreneur Cruise!The moment you enter the ship you feel different. It was like coming home, feeling supported and light. To really have time for YOU, be offline and make the inner journey. After this trip I had new friends, new insights and so many beautiful memories. It was unforgettable ... it was MAGICAL!
Leaving your familiar surroundings gets you into motion. During the cruise I really learned to think big and not working in your business but on your business. The Freedom Entrepreneur Cruise is amazing!

We all know that you have an inner brilliance, a unique talent that only you can give the world. It is your job to fully embrace that inner brilliance and give it to the world and your clients.
We all know that we are holding ourselves back.
I know I was.
I suffered from the Crime of Outshining. At a very young age I learned not to be better than my siblings or my family. I adapted and acted normal.
How about you?
Are you done with playing small?
You will get tools and a guide to claim your Inner Brilliance. There will be exercises, breakthroughs, mastermind-sessions all to unleash the best version of yourself. You will crush your limiting beliefs and we want you to be unstoppable.
You will be guided to a congruent Outer Brilliance. Once you know what your why is, who you serve, what your values are and what your uniqueness is, you want to show it to world. You will develop a Personal Brand fitting your personality, you will create visual story-boards, a content strategy
We start the journey in our own Facebook group. In October 2018 the brand new Facebook group will open up. This is your spot to get excited, make new friends, talk about logistics, think about excursions, get introduced to a whole new netwerk. This is where the excitement starts to build.
In this group we will do regular live Q&A's about the preparation for this cruise, what to wear, what to do on the Caribbean islands, what to eat, how to stay fit, and so much more. The guest speakers will also introduce themselves there.
17 Nights and 18 days on a magnificent cruise ship. You can call it a workation, a business trip, masterminding @ sea, the good work. Whatever you call it, it will give you clarity for your future, a fresh insight in your strategy, relaxation, a good feeling and a hell of an experience!
We are not a travel agency. We organise this retreat to give you a break from your busy life. We do absolutely everything possible to make this the most unforgettable experience of your life. It’s important to read all the other details about travel, insurance, flights, etcetera.
JEANET BATHOORN // FREEDOM ENTREPRENEUR, AUTHOR and CREATOR OF THE FREEDOM ENTREPRENEUR CRUISE
Life never has been better. Work and relax at the same time. Being surrounded by the best entrepreneurs you can think of.
I have grown from a normal quintessential Dutch woman to a Freedom Entrepreneur who travels the world. I built a freedom business while raising 3 beautiful children and having an Icelandic horse to train. I managed and I want to inspire you to do the same!
This cruise was really life changing.I had big plans with my company when I made the decision to join the cruise, but life had other plans for me! I have been an entrepreneur from 2014 and I always was busy with my clients and my family. I never had any time for ME! So when Jeanet came with this Freedom Entrepreneur cruise my heart said YES! But also HOW? Well, I just did it and I never EVER will regret it! My body told me I should take a rest and the calming motion of the sea showed my inner peace. The conclusion was that I had to make BIG decisions in my life. Now I am happily divorced and live a good life with my daughter. I have chosen for 100% in my life and business!
The Freedom Entrepreneur Cruise is exactly that: Freedom, Entrepreneurship and cruising! What a fantastic way of working, learning ánd being free. Freedom is useless unless you can feel it. Being surrounded by water, by other entrepreneurs, by beauty, by luxury and knowing that you don't have to do anything, gives you the opportunity to really dream, write, brainstorm and daydream. Closing the day with a cocktail, or walking on the decks and see the sun go down. Magical!
You are sure to experience something you've never experienced before.
Deep relaxation. Able to work, read, write, sleep, eat.
You are very welcome to join us!
and The Freedom Entrepreneurs Cruise team
During the cruise, we aim to have our own, dedicated conference room. The place where you can meet all other Freedom Entrepreneurs, where you can find the schedule, the place where all the keynotes and the Mastermind-rounds are.
We will have a team of assistants with us. They will know all about the speakers, workshops, excursions, dinner, doctor, everything. You will be introduced to them on the first day so that you will know where to go to if you need help or have questions.
No one is left behind! We are an inclusive community. Therefore we will emphasize taking care of each other. Have dinner together, invite others to your Mastermind-rounds and speak English all the time you are in the group. Speaking German, Dutch, Swiss, Austrian, Icelandic, Swedish, Norwegian or whatever language is reserved for more private places, like in your cabin or in private conversations.
All cruise participants will receive their own unique Freedom Entrepreneur Cruise wristband and lanyard. We advise you to wear them visible at all times. This is your talk trigger, your icebreaker, to meet other people from the group.
Feel the crossing
During the crossing, some people will feel the enormous power of the ocean. They can feel deserted, alone, disoriented. That is because they are cut off from their normal surroundings, there is hardly any wifi and all of a sudden they have so much time to fill. We are aware of this process. Although we are not qualified psychologists we are there to support them. We do not let them struggle on their own. If you notice someone having a hard time: go up to them and offer your help. Please, let us know as well.
If you need a special diet, please inform the team up front. We will inform the cruise company so that you will get the special food every day. Cruises are extremely client-oriented, so we expect that the special food is good as well.
We plan to arrange group-excursions because we believe that it is important to build our relationships and create all these memories together.
Photo’s and video’s
We will take our own professional photographer with us. Creating unforgettable memories needs great pictures.
Absolutely. We expect a mix of very experienced as well as starting entrepreneurs. You will find peers to work with.
No, that is fully up to you. We will have 8 days at sea. During those days you can pick from the program what you like. Consider it as a buffet for entrepreneurs.
No, not at all. When the ship is in the harbour you are completely free to do an excursion. This is not included in the program.
You pay for your own flights to Italy and from Guadeloupe. Further costs are: excursions, obligatory tips, alcoholic beverages and travel insurance.
Yes, make sure you get one. It saves you a lot of time if you can pay with a credit card during the cruise, or during the day trips.
The ship is Italian. They charge everything in Euro's. It is advisable to bring US dollars with you for the day trips.
Yes, all your meals and normal beverages are inclusive. Alcohol and soda are not included. Disclaimer: unless the cruise company changes its policy about it.
On the contrary. Everybody regrets being at the other side of the ocean and having to leave the ship. It is a life changing experience.
We will do an online kick off to meet and to talk about the preparations. The period before the cruise we will be connected in a Facebook group as well.
No. There are a lot of 'normal' tourists on the ship. We are probably the exception. This ship can host almost 4.000 people.
Yes, you can. Contact me for the details. The down payment has to be done before 1st of January 2019.
Yes, you can. You can book a double cabin. It is even better if your partner is an entrepreneur. Partners pay the same price and are welcome in our group.
Yes, you can. The extra cost for the cabin is for you. Kids are NOT allowed to attend the workshops or the presentations. There is an animation team on board.
The ship has airconditioning. The restaurants can be chilly. Just pack different layers of clothing.
Great! You take a leap of faith. We are confident that you will find new best friends on the ship. We will structure the exercises and assignments in such a way that you will connect to a lot of other entrepreneurs. If you book a double cabin, we will match you with an entrepreneur that has 1 or more similarities to you. In the Facebook group you can already start to look for a roommate. Trust us that you also will have a fantastic experience.
We can be clear about that: no. Anyone can book a cabin on the MSC ship but without your wristband or lanyard you will not be allowed to join the conference, the masterminds, the workshops, the private parties, the photo shoots, the group excursions, the private dinner in the restaurant. Preparing and organizing this cruise takes a lot of time and costs a lot of money. It is only fair to book the whole package through this site and enjoy everything that comes with it.
The costs of your flights.
Insurance. We strongly suggest a travel and cancellation insurance.
The cost of the excursions or taxi's.
Your own souvenirs.
No, be assured. This cruise ship is quite normal. We will have one gala night, just bring a nice dress or jacket and you'll be fine.
Just imagine you booked and paid the cruise. And all of a sudden you know that you cannot come and join us. We will dearly miss you. Check the cancellation policy on our payments page. We strongly advise you to take a good cancellation insurance as well as a travel insurance.
The cruise ship has a fully equipped operation room, a medical doctor and nurses. They are well trained and prepared for life and care on the ship.
On a monthly base I will be hosting an online ZOOM meeting. Where you can ask all your questions, about the program, the ship, the daily routine, the community, the crossing. Everything that is on your mind and is stopping you from booking.
I really had to get used to the idea of combining a cruise and business. The moment I realised that I would be on board with likeminded entrepreneurs I said YES!We all shared our stories, I felt listened to and I made a huge mind-shift in setting myself free.
Crossing the Atlantic Ocean, with daily workshops, was a super enriching experience. Thanks to the dedicated programme the cruise was a major inspiration. Jeanet helped me to break through to the next level especially because she showed me that my past, present and future support each other., even in times of disappointment and losses. FreedomEntrepreneur, I so wish you this cruise at least once in your life. Business partners, book together. Those 7 days on the ocean, the world is far away, Wifi is expensive, that is truly unique.
We count the days until we embark in Genua ...
