Georgina Miranda lives mindfully in business and while pursuing the Explorer Grand Slam: standing on the highest summits in each continent, as well as the North and South Pole. The founder of She Ventures and Move 30 Collective shares how years spent summiting the highest mountains in the world drove home her devotion to creating businesses and taking adventures that have a positive social impact on the world. While Georgina’s accomplishments are impressive, we’re most struck by her ability to learn and adapt with each one.
