The questions I answered
Firstly what spurred you on to change your lifestyle from working in finance to now being a fully fledged adventurer?
Out of the many expeditions that you have set yourself, which one challenged/pushed you to the limits both physically and mentally?
Is there one piece of equipment that you cannot go without whilst on an expedition?
Your podcast Tough Girl Challenges has now been running for many years. What inspired you to set this up initially and how much work goes into creating your podcasts?
You interview women from all walks of life. Do you feel that this has inspired you as a person to try new things?
You are next planned expedition is to embark on a 100 day hike across the Appalachian trail. How long does planning such a trip take?

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?
