Do you have big dreams? An ambitious goal? Is fear, overwhelm or lack of motivation stopping you from turning them into reality? Or perhaps something else?

So many of us have great dreams, ambitions, ideas, passions and personal goals. But why is it, that we often shy away from following the life we’d love to live? Why is that fear holds us back?

I am very excited to kick off the series with my wonderful friend Sarah Williams!

Sarah is a blogger, podcaster and motivational speaker, Marathon Des Sables 2016 finisher and an incredible role model to all women and girls.

Sarah walks us through her inspirational story so far and what she has learnt from interviewing over 100 women.

So get ready to receive lots of juicy golden nuggets of actions that we can take immediately, to unleash our best self.

Caveat: Do not Google ‘Marathon Des Sables feet’!

The hardest step to take is the first, and Sarah knows this well.

After working in finance for 8 years Sarah’s soul was dying, so she decided to quit and discover what she really wanted to achieve.

Many adventures later, Sarah created the Tough Girl Podcast to share the stories of inspirational women who have overcome amazing challenges to increase the number of female role models in the media.

Sarah shares with us her inspirational journey and the lessons she's learnt along the way, which will help and empower you to unleash your best self and live more adventurously.
