Sarah Williams - Reflections on 2018 and the start of 2019. Plus plans for Tough Girl Challenges.

Sarah Williams Reflections on 2018 and the start of 2019.

Let me take you behind the scenes as I share more about what has been going on, both in my personal life and what’s been happening with the business.

I answer questions from the Tough Girl Tribe on a range of topics from plans to the future, to getting guests and what I’ve learnt so far.

I also answer my own quick fire questions! Enjoy!
