In 2017 I decided I needed to have more accountability and I wanted to share more of my daily life. I wanted people to be able to follow along with me on this journey. It’s very easy to see only the positive, to see the perfect life that is shown and edited on social media. I wanted to be real. I wanted to be transparent and I wanted you to know what goes on behind the scenes and what it takes to build a brand and a business while trying to make a living at the same time. I share the high point and the low points.
You can listen to the daily episodes from January 2017 until the start of my Appalachian Trail adventure at the end of May. You can then watch what happened while I was out on the Appalachian Trail as I vlogged every day (apart from Day 99 - when I lost the footage!). I also pick up the daily podcast again in October and it runs until the middle of December.
I’ve been wanting to go back to the Tough Girl Daily Podcast for a while. But I’ve just had so much on, I needed to let it go while I focused on my Masters getting back to full strength after the Appalachian Trail and working on building up Tough Girl Challenges into a viable business which can support me. At the moment I do work part time jobs to enable to me to do what I do and I do live with my parents (who are beyond amazing and supportive) but I do need to make this work, I need to be able to earn a living.
I feel there is an illusion about how easy it is to build a business, build a brand and being able to earn a living from it. It’s not - it’s hard work and I hope through this daily podcast you will be able to see what is going on behind the scenes. I will share the good bits and the bad bits, the high points, the low points.
