Tough Girl - Daily Podcast - SEASON 2

After working in finance for 8 years, I quit my city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season. I used this time to help me decide on what I wanted to do with my life. ​ I set up Tough Girl Challenges as a way of motivating and inspiring women and girls. I'm the host the Tough Girl Podcast where I interview inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges. I completed the Marathon des Sables in April 2016 and in 2017 I thru hiked the Appalachian Trail (2,190 miles) in 100 days! In 2018 I will be cycling the Pacific Coast Highway and the Baja Divide! This is my daily update of what I get up to! I want to share the journey, the high points the low points and what it takes to build a business while having fun and going on adventures! ******************************************* SEASON 2 I’ve been wanting to go back to the Tough Girl Daily Podcast for a while. But I’ve just had so much on, I needed to let it go while I focused on my Masters getting back to full strength after the Appalachian Trail and working on building up Tough Girl Challenges into a viable business which can support me. At the moment I do work part time jobs to enable to me to do what I do and I do live with my parents (who are beyond amazing and supportive) but I do need to make this work, I need to be able to earn a living. I feel there is an illusion about how easy it is to build a business, build a brand and being able to earn a living from it. It’s not - it’s hard work and I hope through this daily podcast you will be able to see what is going on behind the scenes. I will share the good bits and the bad bits, the high points, the low points.

I'm getting in touch is in regards to my side blog which is following my attempt to climb 40 volcanoes by the age of 40. Each week I am trying to publish an interview with someone about big adventures or changes in their life - the idea being to inspire my small group of readers to overcome their self doubt to achieve their dreams. I am plagued by self doubt and find it a real struggle but I feel it can be tackled so I want to share this theory with the world.

I understand you quit a job to start tough girl? I was wondering whether you would be willing to respond to some questions around this to be published as one of these interviews on my blog. I have pasted the questions below.


What was the impetus behind quitting your job and starting the tough girl podcasts? Can you give a bit of background and say why you felt you had to make this change.

Before setting out on this new direction what were your doubts/fears/concerns and how did you overcome these?

What is the main thing you have learnt (about life or yourself) from this experience?

What would be your dream adventure/goal and why - and why haven't you done it yet?

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

If you were stuck on a desert island, what three things would you have with you and why?
