This week’s guest is legendary sportswoman, adventurer, speaker and author Jess Watson.
Jess has navigated some of the world’s most remote oceans and has spent 210 days alone at sea where she became the youngest person to sail solo, nonstop around the world. And if that wasn’t enough to convince you of her awesomeness, she did it at 16, an age when I know I was busy trying to grow out an 80’s perm.
I’m not going to spend too long in this interview delving into the physical details of her journey, there’s many an article, documentary and book on that (and I hear rumours a motion picture is in the works). Instead I’m way more interested in hearing from this extraordinary women, about the mental side of tackling such a monumental task.
So, in the next hour, you are going to hear us go deep on a few key areas:
– How do you build and then lead a crew when it’s your life on the line? And when they are infinitely more experienced than you?
– How do you find the courage to voice an audacious dream and shut down the critics? Even when that critic is you.
– How do you get buy in from people when what they are buying into seems impossible?
