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

Welcome! It all starts with a dream and a belief that anything is possible. Developing an understanding that our limits are not set by our current reality. The realization that nothing outside of us holds our power, happiness, or our magic is key. It lives within. So despite what life may throw out at us, if we take an adventure inward, we find what we need. This journey of life continues to teach me the greatest adventure we take is the one inward. There lies the magic of love, understanding, compassion, and the key to unlocking our full potential. It’s then that not only we benefit, but the world and communities around us, as we contribute to a greater collective good. We all have a gift to share with the world.

 

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 lives by her motto, “The extraordinary is always possible, never limit yourself or life’s potential. This belief has taken her from not being able to run a mile to scaling the highest peaks on earth, including Mt. Everest in an effort to raise awareness around gender-based violence and climate change. Georgina is a social entrepreneur, adventurer, public speaker, consultant, coach, writer, and activist combining over a decade of Corporate, Start-up, and Adventure experience. She is a social innovator working to accelerate gender equality globally and exploring new ways to unleash full human potential in life and business from a holistic mind, body, spirit approach to benefit the collective good. The world is changing at a rapid pace and asking of us for more global and social consciousness in how we live, work and preserve our earth.

She is the founder and CEO of She Ventures, a social enterprise accelerating gender equality globally with an event series, media platform, coaching and consultancy practice, and network. She is an accomplished adventurer 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. 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. 1 in 3 women will experience gender-based violence in their lifetime. Arctic sea ice is melting at an alarming rate- 12% per decade. 

Georgina has led and advised cross-functional teams and clients in Fortune 500 companies globally, with a focus on transforming performance and developing company culture. Her years as a management consultant stressed the importance of making people the priority of any strategy, as people are at the core of any successful business. 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 in the world. She’s 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 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. 

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.

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.

 
 

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 often says the biggest mountain she has ever climbed is not Everest, but rather starting her own business. 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.
