An exciting new podcast about women across a variety of industries and walks of life. The first episode features Leona O’Shea owner of Fierce Fitness.
Launch of New Monthly Podcast: EXTRAordinary Women

This is a podcast about women across a variety of industries and walks of life, who have done something unique, challenging or brave in their lives. The goal of this podcast is to inspire women who might think that they’re ‘just ordinary’ to see what other ‘ordinary’  everyday women did, and how they did it.

It's a way to encourage women to examine their limiting beliefs, and find encouragement, hope, motivation and inspiration from other women, who are, in many ways, just like them.

There will be a monthly episode from here on in with women from across the globe and a nice sprinkling of women from Shannon too! You can find all links to view or listen to the podcast in our directory.
