Tough Girl - Daily Podcast

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 will be thru hiking the Appalachian Trail (2,190 miles) in 100 days! 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! Sarah AKA - Tough Girl xx The Daily Podcast will be on hold until I come back from the Appalachian Trail. I will be thru-hiking from the 3rd June to the 10th September. You can watch my vlogs on my Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/c/SarahWilliamsToughGirlChallenges
