“I am always thinking how can I add value? How can I add so much value that people want to listen to the podcast, they want to support it, they want to help with its growth, they want to share it? That, for me, is a really key point.”
After working in finance for 8 years, Sarah Williams quit her city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season. She used this time to help her to decide what she wanted to do with her life.
On her return, she decided she wanted to motivate and inspire young girls. She developed Tough Girl Challenges and began speaking at local schools to girls about their goals and plans for the future.
Shockingly, she discovered many of the girls didn’t have any goals, most of them not being exposed to inspirational female role models.
In August 2015 Sarah launched the Tough Girl Podcast where she interviews inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges.
In this interview Sarah and I explore:
+ How Sarah grew her following to 800+ women in her Tough Girl Tribe Facebook group and 240,000+ downloads.
+ The systems and processes Sarah has in place for time management, productivity and promotion.
+ How Sarah monetises her podcast.
+ The opportunities and growth gifted to her through her podcast.

ABOUT SARAH WILLIAMS
After working in finance for 8 years, I quit my city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season. I used this time to help me decide on what I wanted to do with my life.
I set up Tough Girl Challenges as a way of motivating and inspiring women and girls.
I’m the host the Tough Girl Podcast where I interview inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges.
