Update on downloads for the Tough Girl Podcast


At the end of 2015 I started to think about what I wanted to achieve in 2016. I knew the Marathon des Sables was going to be one of my massive goals for the year! I also wanted another goal, relating to the Tough Girl Podcast.

I decided the biggest goal I could set for myself was to reach 100,000 downloads.


Tough Girl Podcast Goal

When I came up with this, I maybe had 17,000 downloads if that!

I had no way of knowing what was going to happen and if I’d be able to achieve my goal.

I didn't actually know if it was realistic, I didn’t know if it would be possible, to get that many downloads in the time frame I’d given myself. But I knew that I had to try. I had to give it a go and see what would happen.

I may fail, I may not hit it, but I knew I’d be learning a lot on the journey.

May 12th I could see it was getting close, I kept checking my stats in Libsyn, 48,720, 49,135, 49,768, 49,999 - It was going to happen!!!!

I achieved a mile stone for the Tough Girl Podcast - 50,000 downloads.


I just can’t believe it....

The number is huge!!!

To think so many people have been inspired by the women I’ve interviewed is amazing. It’s actually a little scary, but it makes me know that what I’m doing, the message I’m putting out there is working. People are listening to the podcast. People are sharing the podcast and telling their friends about it, it's starting to grow!!

I’m now actually ahead of schedule! I wanted to get to 50,000 by June, but to do it in May is awesome!!

So thank you, to you all for listening, for sharing and for being apart of this mission and helping me on my journey to reaching 100,000 downloads!
