Backing yourself.

Backing yourself.

Mark Beaumont Part I

In the first of two interviews, Mark shares how he got started in endurance cycling and some of the key success factors in making a sustainable living in the adventure world, including:

  • Are you prepared to take risks and “back yourself before you ask others to back you”?

  • The importance of a clear intent, professionalism and a commitment to developing essential commercial and business skills

  • The value of talking to people, finding mentors and asking for help

  • Why you need to get outside your silo
