Squash Falconer New Website

Posted on

A few weeks ago my new website was launched.

Huge thanks to Woodey Gundry – the legend who built it!

I’m so delighted that it’s up and running and that you are in fact on it now!  Thank you for visiting.  I’d love any feedback or comments – which you can leave here or send to [email protected]

Here’s some back ground into how I reached this point, right now!

When I was little I wanted to be a farmer, I didn’t know the work I now do was even a possibility.

I spent my 20’s trying to figure out how to turn my passions into a career and although I didn’t earn very much money, I was kind of making it happen.  In 2011 I took a loan out and I climbed Mt Everest. I spent my 30th birthday at Camp 2 on the mountain.  There was plenty of time for thinking and reflection during the many days of acclimatisation and I made a deal with myself.

1. I would get back home to my friends and family who mean so much to me and tell them how much I loved them.
2. I would continue to work hard to earn money to pay back the loan I had taken out for Everest.
3. I would share my stories and adventures with other people and use the experiences I have had to make a positive impact wherever possible.
4. I would remind myself to enjoy and be thankful for all the moments – when I was on Everest, life was brought into sharp focus and I realised that the next moments are not guaranteed.

I got home and told my friends and family what they meant to me.

A few weeks ago I paid back the loan I had taken out to climb Mt Everest.

In February I had the privilege of presenting and sharing my story at St James Palace to over 200 young people who had achieved their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Right now I am sitting here enjoying and feeling thankful for this moment – over the past few months, together with several other talented and brilliant people, I have been working on my new website and now it’s now being shared!

My journey has been incredible – so many people have played a part; helping, supporting, laughing, teaching, sharing, guiding and probably the most important believing in me when I got a bit lost.

Thank you to everyone who has been with me on the journey so far – I couldn’t have done it without you.

I’m looking forward to what’s next 🙂
