Are new to the outdoor stuff and would love to get out of town more often and try something, but don’t even know where to start?
As I mentioned in my Red Bull article, 8 Things We Learned At 2018’s Women In The Outdoors Week, joining a community of like-minded badass adventurers is the best way to start. Below I’ve included a list of all of the online and offline communities that will help you get out more, try something new and reach your potential.
Brands and Companies I Love:
Award-Winning Adventure Holidays, Weekend Breaks and Ski Chalet Holidays. I’ve met the founder Alex Narracott and he is really lovely and I’ve been on one of their weekend getaways in Geneva which you can listen to here.
The community of adventurers founded by Belinda Kirk, a really awesome human being who helped me start my adventure journey many years ago. Join the adventure revolution.
Don’t forget to search here for local like-minded groups doing fun things!
Chris, who I’ve met and can say is really awesome, is a bestselling author, keynote speaker, serial entrepreneur, biz coach, blogger and podcaster! He’s my go-to guy when I need help on building my personal brand and business.
Another incredible woman who I’ve met and worked with on several occasions. Her book has transformed my business and landed me a dream job. If you want to know how small business owners are being featured in The Guardian, Marie Claire and Huffington Post, Janet’s your woman!
