#20 - Reaching The North Pole At Age 14 & The Polar Hat Trick WIth Paul And Jade Hameister

We have Paul Hameister and his 14 y.o. daughter, Jade in our 20th episode. Paul is in the property development industry and he has quite an appetite for adventure to match his success. He's the 12th Australian to have climbed the Seven Summits, Mt. Everest included. Jade will be sharing to us about 'The Polar Hat Trick' and her quest, dedicated to empower young women.

Kicking off the podcast we do a quick intro on Paul and Jade, then our crew asks Jade what has been her biggest influence in wanting to pursue adventure. The convo goes a little deeper as our guests narrate the preparation before heading to the North Pole, actually arriving at the place, the challenges they encountered along the way, and reaching the destination.

Interesting and inspiring to hear from Jade and her perspective on things, adventure, health and fitness.
