Over 20 years ago Tanya and her husband, Hank, quit their jobs and left their home to move to Ontario's wilderness with their beloved huskies to start a business, family and lifestyle. They now welcome over 3000 guests from around the world every winter to experience dogsledding on their 2000 acres of wilderness bordering Algonquin Park. 

Hank & their huskies have competed in 6 – 1000 mile races in Alaska & the Yukon and they have written 2 books from these races - the latest an international best seller. Tanya shares stories and lessons around leadership, teamwork, overcoming adversity and building a business to international audiences. They and their huskies have been featured in countless commercials, movies, TV shows and major media from CNN, New York Times, Rick Mercer Report, Canada AM, Toronto Star to name a few. They share their lives with their 4 children, 3 cats and large husky family.

Hello, I'm Vanessa, the host of Women In Confidence. Welcome and thanks for listening. I designed this podcast to appeal to working women who want to understand what confidence is, what you can do to build (or rebuild) your confidence and then maintain it. I interview amazing women who have genuine stories to tell about their journey through life and how they manage the ups and downs of life. My vision is for my listeners to try something that has worked for my guests and if it changes their lives then I feel that the podcast has been a positive contribution to the world.
