Hosted by Laura Crossley

In 2017, Laura completed a trek through the Himalayas to arrive at Everest Base Camp. Along the journey, she heard many stories of the first explorers to summit Mount Everest. The earliest attempts failed. But, after 31 years and many additional failed expeditions, Hillary and Norgay finally succeeded. Subsequent successes at Everest were achieved at a staggering rate. First, years later. Then, months…weeks…days. While challenges in the journey remain – even today – explorers take on the adventure with a wealth of knowledge from those that came before them. Inspired by the tales of the paths they blazed – Maven Minds aims to share stories that can help leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators to climb their own mountains and move forward exponentially faster with greater rates of success.
