Little Steps, Big Feat–Life and Leadership Lessons From One Woman’s Walk Around the World
On August 1st, 1999, Polly Letofsky left her home in Vail, Colorado and headed west. She traveled across 4 continents, 22 countries, and over 14, 000 miles–by foot–to become the first woman to walk around the world.
In the middle of Polly’s five year journey, the world suddenly shifted on its axis when September 11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history. Polly suddenly found herself embedded in a vastly changing world and realized she could never retrace her steps home–they’d vanished in a tide of world events.
Polly’s GlobalWalk has been featured in over 2,000 newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations around the world. Polly now shares her story with the members of Rising Tide Business Networking group.
