Episode 17 - Sarah Williams (Tough Girl podcast host, author, blogger and speaker)

In episode 17 we hear from Tough Girl Sarah Williams. After working in finance for 8 years, Sarah quit her city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season.

Sarah set up Tough Girl Challenges as a way of motivating and inspiring women and girls, and is the host of the Tough Girl Podcast where she interviews inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges. She now has over half a million downloads with listeners in over 174 countries.

Alongside this Sarah absolutely walks the talk with adventures such as the Marathon Des Sables and the Appalachian Trail under her belt. In this episode we hear about how she prepared for these challenges and what she learned as well as the harsh truth of what it was like day to day to complete them.

Sarah totally embodies her Tough Girl brand but also doesn't shy away from discussing the realities of this type of lifestyle. Sarah's Daily Podcast series shows exactly what it's like to be an adventurer, which helps hugely to debunk the myths that it's all fun and games. A true role model for millions, Sarah is destined for great things the next of which is to cycle the Pacific Coast Highway and the Baja Divide.
