I’m sitting down with the trailblazing powerhouse Jenn Drummond, a mother of seven who has shattered the glass ceiling and will become the first female to conquer the seven second summits. Jenn’s incredible journey was ignited as her son dared her to scale Mount Everest. She didn’t let obstacles stop her, she rose to the challenge and persevered, becoming a beacon of inspiration not only for her children but also for countless others along the way.
Jenn shares her daily routine of rigorous training and the crucial role her children played in her journey. She highlights the transformative power of tackling difficult tasks and believes you should take on your own monumental challenges. With grit, perseverance, and unwavering belief in oneself, anything is possible.
So, if you’re ready to be inspired and motivated, take Jenn’s advice to heart, and go out there and tackle the challenges that you’ve been putting off. Remember, the only thing standing between you and your dreams is you!

Some snippets from the episode:
Jenn Drummond is trying to be the first female to climb the seven second summits. She says deep down, she is a seeker. Her bucket list got to be a bucket book.
Seven people will climb Mont logan for the entire duration of the expedition. They carry their gear three to 4 miles each day. What happens if there’s an emergency?
The mother of seven is the only female on her team of seven. What is it like actually having seven children? “It’s a lot of time invested just on the daily to be able to do this kind of thing”
I had no idea I was afraid of heights until I started this quest. Being able to language it has allowed me to shrink it and define it. It’s all in perspective and the way that you view it.
These opportunities just keep refreshing and keep allowing me to be authentic and real. Let’s keep shaving off and leaning in.
When you want to quit, you’re only at about 40% of your own personal capacity, there’s still 60% more to go. Sometimes you just have to remind yourself of that and then dig deep and think of who you’re doing it for and why.
