In today’s episode, Eva and Olga welcome Sally Kettle, inspirational speaker, adventurer, event host, television presenter, and author of ‘Sally’s Odd at Sea.” She’s a Guinness World Record Breaker and has raised over £500,000 for charity.

She has made and broken many records, including being the first woman to row the Atlantic Ocean twice from East to West, and once with her mother!  Sallys’ determination proves that with focus, discipline, and determination, you can accomplish anything in life!


  • Her experience in crossing the Atlantic not just once, but twice.
  • How her journey to the world of rowing started.
  • Stories about how she and her mom Sarah succeeded in rowing the Atlantic.
  • Her fight against epilepsy and how it affected her dreams.
  • Training for her competitions, and how to stay motivated.
  • All about the ShelterBox organization and how it helps disaster-struck locations.


In this episode, Sally emphasized the importance of believing in yourself and not letting the people around you — whether it is your classmates, family, or so-called friends, tell you that you can’t accomplish your goals. This week’s lesson is to ignore the naysayers — the people in you encounter in life that tell you that you can’t do it! You are the master of your own destiny. We created this inspirational artwork which you can print out and use as a reminder. We love the quote, don’t you? As always, our Dream Big Podcast downloads can be customized with your face and name, and it is 100% free to download. Click here to claim you free download.

If this coming week you ignore all the naysayers in your life, please let Olga know by emailing her at [email protected]. You will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon Gift card and 1-month free membership in Post Pal Club. Winners are selected monthly and contacted by email (as well as announced on our show!).
