Julz and Senka trying to nail the perfect selfie... its a work in progress!
Hands down, I have an obsession with the outdoors and getting more women there.
Over a decade ago I quit working for the corporates and became a serial entrepreneur and co-launched my first business and never looked back (ok, maybe once or twice if I’m being totally honest).
I’ve helped my share of women find their sense of adventure along the way, and for the most part of it, I’ve had a tonne of fun.
Seeing a person’s face light up in that moment they move into seeing something is possible for them… that’s gold!
I’m no stranger to failure or set backs though. I’ve been married and divorced, struggled with my weight and self esteem, and built a property potrfolio and then lost everything in the property market crash.
From these lessons and a sh*t load more I have learned first-hand how to overcome anxiety, low self-esteem and that inner critic to get myself back into a place of being totally ok with who I am.
I now use those lessons, my love for getting our and trying new thing, woven together with my skills as an NLP Master Practitioner to have fun with women like you that are ready to have more fun and adventure in your lives… can I get a HELL YEAH!
So come join the fun… can’t wait to see you out there!
Senka, resident adventure laughter expert.
Since my first solo adventure to Alaska when I was 18 years old, I have been helping outdoor lovers, thrill seekers and dogs of all shapes and sizes get out into the great outdoors.
I am so passionate about getting women into the outdoors, into business and leadership roles. Another passion is sustainability in the workplace, which I am forever grateful to others for helping us continually improve our practices.
I am co-founder and co-owner of Further Faster, New Zealand’s premier independent outdoor adventure importer, distributor and retailer, if I do say so myself! Having worked in the outdoor industry on and off for 20 years it was a natural progression for us to start our own company, and I haven’t one regret.
As well as finding time for adventures in the mountains with my friends, our loyal customers and Badger (my even more loyal dog), I somehow also find time to give back to the community by working part time for the emergency services.
Julz and Badger, always up for some good times with Mother Nature.
