Stories Behind the Grind

Dec 9, 2019

On this episode of Stories Behind the Grind, listen to my conversation with Eleanor Carey, a two times world record holder having rowed 5,000km across the Pacific Ocean and cycled over 3,000km across England.

We discuss overcoming other people's expectations and judgement, what to look for in a support network, how to keep going when you're physically depleted and lessons learnt from running her own startup hub.
