Meet the Host

Senka Radonich

Hi, I’m Senka .  I like long walks on the beach, I’m an Aquarian and I like… oh hold up, wrong place for that.

Let’s try that again.  Hey, I’m Senka.  Creator of Adventure Girls – kick ass adventures for women and Adventure Girls In Biz.

In 2004 I quit working for the corporates and became a serial entrepreneur and co-launched my first business and never looked back (ok, maybe once or twice if I’m being totally honest).

I’ve helped my share of women find their sense of adventure along the way through adventure girls, and for the most part of it, I’ve had a tonne of fun.  Seeing a person’s face light up in that moment they move into seeing something is possible for them… that’s gold!

I’m no stranger to failure or set backs though. I’ve been married and divorced, struggled with my weight and self estem, and built a property potfolio and then lost everything in the property market crash resulting in having to restart Adventure Girls all over from scratch.  From these lessons and a sh*t load more I have learned first-hand how to overcome anxiety, low self-esteem and that inner critic to get myself back into a place of being totally ok with who I am and rocking my biz.

Between Adventure Girls and the Adventure Girls Sisterhood I’ve created a global reach of around 13k women who are interested in adventures in one way or another.  I’ve run well over 200 adventures for women including both national and international.
