Welcome to the #AdventureSeries

Hello everybody! Welcome to #AdventureSeries. I’m Polly Brennan, Life Coach at Adventurous Coaching and  I’m going to be interviewing all sorts of adventurous people, who do all sorts of fun and adventurous things, from all walks of life. I’ve been connecting up with some amazing people –  travellers, entrepreneurs, digital nomads, veterans, Paralympians… and some mystery guests too. People leaping out of their box and having new adventures.  I’m really excited to share their stories with you as part of my #AdventureSeries. I’ll be learning more about what adventure means to them and what inspires them to lead an adventurous lifestyle. We will discover their top tips about how to create adventures, and the difference that this makes to their lives. This project will be ongoing for the next year. On the first day of every month, check in to discover who I’ll be showcasing.  I hope you find it useful, I hope you find it inspiring, but most importantly I hope you enjoy it. #AdventureSeries is all about encouraging us all to have more, to be more, to do more. My best hope is that you’ll be encouraged to try new things, perhaps do something you keep talking about and to tap into that audacious and adventurous streak that we all have. I think that is completely possible, don’t you? As a life coach I love helping people to get inspired, get clear on what they want from life, and discover ways to adopt an adventurous approach to life. Adventurous Coaching is life coaching for lifes’ adventure.
