#159 How to stop procrastinating and start inspiring with Georgina Vestey

Tid: 46:37
In 1976 the film Rocky was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won three, including best picture, making its writer and lead role, Sylvester Stallone, a star.
It also went on to become the highest-grossing movie of the year.
Now there's a reason why Rocky stole the show...we LOVE a good story!
Especially a story involving an underdog who against all odds finds a way to win the day.
Who despite all their fears, doubts and everyone second guessing them along the way, manages to push through adversity, overcome challenges and come out swinging, punching way above their weight.
Georgie, just like Rocky, was an underdog.
As a one woman-band independent podcaster, Georgie Vestey had little to no chance to get nominated let alone win the most prestigious podcasting award in the country.
And yet, Georgie's podcast "Dead Honest" ended up being nominated for "Best Interview Podcast" at the British Podcast Awards 2021 and was up against media juggernauts including Channel 4 and The Guardian, all fighting for gold.
Well, just like Rocky, Georgie shocked the world and came out with her hand raised.
But she didn't stop there...
Today Georgie was announced as the winner of a prestigous European Lovie Awards, a ceremony celebrating the best of European internet, which is a pretty big deal.
The crazy thing is, Georgie almost never pressed published on her podcast.
This is the story of how a perfectionist procrastinator became an award-winning podcaster and inspired thousands of independent podcasts to keep fighting the good fight.
No matter what your goals are, I hope that you get inspired by my conversation with Georgie to get started on your journey to impact too.
I can't wait to hear what you got out of it over on social media @markleruste or over on !
Be brave, be true, be kind and let it rip.
