A few weeks ago my new website was launched.
Huge thanks to Woodey Gundry – the legend who built it!
Here’s some back ground into how I reached this point, right now!
When I was little I wanted to be a farmer, I didn’t know the work I now do was even a possibility.
I spent my 20’s trying to figure out how to turn my passions into a career and although I didn’t earn very much money, I was kind of making it happen. In 2011 I took a loan out and I climbed Mt Everest. I spent my 30th birthday at Camp 2 on the mountain. There was plenty of time for thinking and reflection during the many days of acclimatisation and I made a deal with myself.
1. I would get back home to my friends and family who mean so much to me and tell them how much I loved them.
2. I would continue to work hard to earn money to pay back the loan I had taken out for Everest.
3. I would share my stories and adventures with other people and use the experiences I have had to make a positive impact wherever possible.
4. I would remind myself to enjoy and be thankful for all the moments – when I was on Everest, life was brought into sharp focus and I realised that the next moments are not guaranteed.
I got home and told my friends and family what they meant to me.
A few weeks ago I paid back the loan I had taken out to climb Mt Everest.
In February I had the privilege of presenting and sharing my story at St James Palace to over 200 young people who had achieved their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Right now I am sitting here enjoying and feeling thankful for this moment – over the past few months, together with several other talented and brilliant people, I have been working on my new website and now it’s now being shared!
My journey has been incredible – so many people have played a part; helping, supporting, laughing, teaching, sharing, guiding and probably the most important believing in me when I got a bit lost.
Thank you to everyone who has been with me on the journey so far – I couldn’t have done it without you.
I’m looking forward to what’s next
