During this episode, I reflect back on the final 6 months of 2021 and the beginning of 2022.
I really enjoy doing the solo reflection episodes as it is an opportunity to look back on what's been achieved and where we currently are at the moment with regards to the Tough Girl Podcast, what I'm doing personally and where I expect to see the business go over the following 6 to 12 months.
It also gives me an opportunity to answer any questions that patrons or members of the Tough Girl Tribe have.
During this episode I talk more about the Wales Coast Path and go into detail about money. How I afford to travel and go on adventures.
I also share more about my future plans which will be taking place in 2022 and what I hope will happen in 2023
