Derval O'Rourke - Olympic athlete to business owner

Season 2, Episode 5,  Mar 05, 06:00 AM

Derval O'Rourke came up with the idea of a membership-based health platform (Derval.ie) not long after she retired from international athletics in 2014. Only the likes of Joe Wicks were really known for them at that point so the three-time Olympian and World Indoor Champion struggled to explain the concept initially. Here, Derval speaks about starting a business while juggling childcare, how she dealt with disappointment and why almost everything is survivable. It's grand, like! Derval is super-inspiring and this is a particularly motivating episode for anyone feeling like they're in a career rut.
