Publisher Description

Ignite your inner adventurer and delve into the unknown on this journey of transformation. The Inside Hustle shakes off the ordinary for the extraordinary, delivering thought-provoking wisdom for the now moment with fierce authenticity, honesty and humour. 

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 she climbs Mount Kilimanjaro, imbibes plant medicine, consults energy healers and visits sacred sites, 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. It’s a transformational travel adventure taking you on a wild ride, which is as entertaining as it is enlightening. Are you ready to embrace 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.” Catherine 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.

Joanna Walden spent twenty years working in advertising around the world and exploring everything from Transcendental Meditation to quantum physics. Currently residing in Auckland, New Zealand, Joanna quit the corporate world to start a transformational consulting business, and begin sharing her knowledge and voice with the world.
