Real connections are made in the outdoors. There is a contagious energy to be found in women bonding through time spent outside. In this episode, we talk to two women who are building businesses around that energy.

Sasha Cox is the founder of Trail Mavens. She and a team of guides take women on backpacking and camping trips in the Bay Area of California. The trips are meant to teach, inspire, and empower; other side effects include new outdoor skills and friendships.

Amanda Goad is the founder of Wild Women’s Project, a series of backcountry hut trips designed to connect women within the outdoor industry. Unsastified by traditional networking events, Amanda decided to start her own.
