Natalie Campbell and Hannah Carnell. Natalie and Hannah decided there had to be more to life than 9-5 so they left the Rat Race for the Good life. A Good Week is their new initiative to inspire people, businesses and communities to take action to feel good, do good and live good. It will take place in June 2011.
