I work in the outdoors helping people develop their leadership through practical experience. It’s an awesome job, and I work with awesome people (we have a pool of staff of 38 professionals from all walks of life). One of them owns a trekking company (which I’m now a partner in).
After a particularly difficult program in Margaret River, he asked me if I’d like to join his Everest Base Camp trip – the problem was it was only four weeks from there. I thought about it for a nano-second – it was never really on my bucket list (and being over 50, didn’t think I would ever do it). And I said yes.
