ADVENTURER | SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR | SPEAKER | COACH | CONSULTANT | ACTIVIST

The extraordinary is always possible; Never limit yourself or life’s potential. 
— Georgina Miranda's Mantra
 

I live my life by the motto above. It’s been my mantra in business, driving social and environmental change, and in chasing my dreams.

I use my voice and adventures to advocate for women’s rights and equality, climate change, and mental wellness.

This journey of life continues to teach me the greatest adventure we take is the one inward and that sometimes the biggest mountains we climb are those in our mind. A shift in mindset is the key to any successful transformation.

DARE TO BE YOU. IT’S THE MOST COURAGEOUS TRANSFORMATION.

 
 

I’m inspired to do work that wakes people up. To show people that we are all powerful beyond measure, and that this power can be used to do good in the world. To show the beauty of life and to trigger in others what is beautiful inside of them, because we all have this inside of us.— Georgina Miranda

Bio

Georgina is a social entrepreneur, adventurer, public speaker, consultant, coach, and activist combining over a decade of Corporate, Start-up, and Adventure experience. She is a social innovator working to accelerate gender equality and the wellbeing of women globally, while also helping people, teams, and companies discover new ways to unleash full human potential in life and business from a holistic mind, body, spirit approach to benefit the collective good. She is a leadership and transformation expert with a client roster of Fortune 500 companies globally. The world is changing at a rapid pace and asking of us for more global and social consciousness in how we live, work, lead, and preserve our earth. Her work is centered in that a shift in mindset is the key to any successful transformation.

She is the founder and CEO of She Ventures, a global social enterprise accelerating gender equality and the wellbeing of women-unleashing the untapped power of women because it's good for the world. She is an accomplished adventurer/mountaineer in the process of completing the Explorer Grand Slam (8 Summits + 2 Poles Around the Globe). A feat which less than 15 women globally have completed in effort to raise awareness around gender-based violence and climate change. With just 3 expeditions remaining, she is soliciting sponsorships to complete the project. This project shares the voices and stories of women and places at risk.

Georgina has started 3 companies and spent a decade as a management consultant focusing on transforming performance, developing leaders and company culture. These experiences have stressed the importance of making people the priority of any strategy, as people are at the core of any successful business, as is their wellbeing. She focuses a lot of her work on teaching about mindfulness, calling it the "key to transforming performance and behaviors."

She holds an MBA from Loyola Marymount University and is a graduate of the The Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center Milestone Maker Program in San Francisco.

She firmly believes that women are the world's largest untapped resource and that given equal opportunities, women hold the key to being the largest contributors of positive economic, social, and environmental change globally. She is on a mission to do her part to change this statistic.

Georgina credits the mountains, nature, a life of adventure, and the inward spiritual journey this has all sparked to shaping who she is today. She is passionate about sharing the gift of adventure, mindfulness, and wellness with others to help them unleash their power within and enjoy life more fully.

Georgina is an avid mountaineer, skier, traveler, yogi, meditator, reiki practitioner, and overall adventurer inside and out. She uses her voice and adventures to advocate for women’s rights and equality, climate change, and mental wellness.

As a Latina born in Los Angeles to Nicaraguan and El Salvadorian parents, she also believes in boosting diversity of women and minorities across all industries in leadership roles and beyond. She might be considered your unlikely adventurer, but she is proof that adventure is for everyone and that it changes lives. Adventure has been her confirmation of her life motto: The extraordinary is always possible, never limit yourself or life's potential.

Mt. Everest 2013

Entrepreneurship

 

Georgina successfully reached the summit of Everest in 2013 after a second attempt in 2011 where she had to turn around due to hypoxia. She is in the process of completing the Explorer Grand Slam, a feat which less than 60 people globally have completed (less than 15 women). When Georgina started this personal challenge, she could barely run a mile in 2007. She credits a practice of mindfulness to helping her reach the summit.

 



Georgina currently calls Amsterdam and Los Angeles home, but considers herself a global citizen. Her life and commitments keep her on the move! Training her mind and nourishing her spirit have always been as equally important as training her body. She regularly practices meditation and yoga, and is a certified reiki practitioner. She is a believer in daily mindfulness in how we live and interact with the world around us. Georgina is an advocate for mental wellness, having grown up in a household with mental illness and having herself struggled with depression at several points in her life. A spiritual practice of meditation and movement have kept her healthy and balanced. She now teaches that to others.

 

Georgina often says the biggest mountain she has ever climbed is not Everest, but rather starting her own businesses. In 2017, she completed the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center's Milestone Makers Program. Here she is featured in Times Square April 2017 with her previous startup Altitude Seven, which merged with She Ventures in late 2017.

 

Choosing adventure and going beyond your limits—self-imposed, familial, or societal—allows you to change the narrative of who you are and redefine what is possible for your life. Getting out of your comfort zone in nature allows you to think bigger and bolder in all areas of your life and I want every woman, young and old, to experience that.
