"Do the thing that makes you feel alive."

Is this really it? Is this what I really want to do with my life? What do I really want to do? Will I succeed or fail? Should I stay where I’m comfortable?

At some point in our life, we have all asked ourselves these questions, or variants of them, but it takes a certain type of person to take action on them.

And If you’re listening to this podcast, I’m reckoning you’re that type of person

When Sophie Radcliffe started asking herself these questions, she was feeling unhappy and unfulfilled with where she was in life, so Sophie decided to take action and change her life.

Starting off small-ish, Sophie began training for adventure races and cycled London to Paris at weekends, amongst other exciting physical challenges.

All at a time when Sweaty Betty and Lulu Lemon did not exist and it was quite unusual to get up early and go training!

Still dissatisfied with where she was and yearning for even more adventures and challenges, Sophie decided to leave her 8 year career at the UK’s fastest growing tech company to start her own business and has gone on to become a successful professional endurance adventure athlete, motivational speaker and blogger.

Sophie has been inspiring and motivating me for years and I’m VERY excited to have her on my podcast!

In this episode, Sophie is going to excite, inspire and drive you to take action and even more steps towards living your most authentic self and importantly, living your life to the full.

In the words of Sophie Radcliffe, you have One Life. Live It.

Warning: Side effects of listening to this podcast include happiness, motivation and drive to take action on achieving your dreams. It will likely lead you to having too much fun, laughter and living life to the full.
