The only woman to summit Mount Everest from both sides, Cathy O'Dowd joins us with her history and some life lessons for us. She was a "stubborn and adventurous kid" who stumbled into mountaineering through a content.

She discusses failures as successes- not just points for learning. And that when you're climbing a mountain, summiting a mountain is just one of the goals.
