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.
