There are so many extraordinary people achieving outside of the ordinary. From athletes to artists, adventurers to entrepreneurs, scientists to everyday people embarking on huge adventures. However, it is not what they achieve that fascinates me, but rather, how they achieve such excellence. Through my Find Your Feet Podcast, I want to pull back layer upon layer to find out what drives these members of our community who are striving hard to find their feet & live a rich, purposeful life. I want to help their powerful messages and stories to be heard so that they can continue to make a ripple… or potentially even a splash! I hope that through sharing their journeys and an insight into what makes them tick, we can provide an avenue for your own self-exploration for a meaningful life filled with excellence, in whatever that field may be. Because ultimately, I just hope that these inspiring individuals can help us all to progress one step closer to finding our feet as people, and in whatever dreams we dare to dream.
