28 quick fire questions with Georgia Rickard

Writer, BIG dreamer, entrepreneur and overall 10/10, Georgia Rickard, gives the scoop on some pretty quirky Q’s.

We sat down with our co-founder, writer extraordinaire and kick-ass business babe, Georgia Rickard, to talk over all the things you’re dying to know (and plenty of things you didn’t know you were dying to know until we brought it up!).

 

In this tell-all, quick-fire interview you can find out Georgia’s hourly at her first job, her favourite piece of (very expensive) clothing, her role models and her coffee order. You can also take a look at her (BIG) dreams, her biggest fear and what she would have been if she hadn’t chosen the travel life. Sooooo juicy.

 

1. What is your biggest fear?

Rejection leading to abandonment closely followed by the world running out of chocolate

 

 

2. What is the most cringeworthy thing you have ever done?

Where to begin…

Oh god, once I was making out with a boy while wearing a fashion sample that had been given to me by a PR. He felt the back of the garment and the tag was still attached, I could not have been more embarrassed. 

 

 

3. What is your earliest memory?

Being with ma and dad.

 

 

4. What is your favourite piece of clothing?

Ohhhh… My Viktor & Rolf black silk wrap dress.

 

I bought it for around $1500 in Manhattan when I was 21 years old, and, you know, that’s a lot of money for a 21 year old. But, I’ve almost gotten 15 years worth of wear out of it, so, that’s value.

 

 

5. If you could board a flight tomorrow where would you go?

Can I pick two?

I would go to the Maldives with my friends and then onwards to Canada, where I would do a ski trip with my little brother in Whistler.

 

 

6. Apart from property, what was the most expensive thing you ever purchased?

A year of rehab.

 

 

7. Who is your role model?

My parents.

 

 

8. What was your first ever job?

When I was 14 I was a check-out chick at Woolies. I was making bank with $4.30 an hour.

 

 

9. What is your favourite food?

Oh that is hard. 

It would have to be a tie between pizza and salad. Balance.

 

 

10. What is your most unappealing habit?

I am EXTREMELY direct.

It is both my greatest strength and weakness.

 

 

11. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a gymnast and if I couldn’t be a gymnast I wanted to be a lawyer. 

 

 

12. What is something that most excites you?

Making a difference in someone’s life.

 

13. What’s your biggest dream?

To have a global impact.

14. Which book changed your life?

There are way too many, so I’ll say this:

The act of reading changed my life. I believe that reading gave me the language I needed to better articulate and express myself…

 

And self expression is the greatest gift.

A triple shot soy latte.

Love.

Summer.

 

(Can ya’ tell?)

Red Roses by Jo Malone.

 

 

20. What is your favourite hobby?

Reading.

 

 

21. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Bite off more than you can chew and then chew like crazy.

I would be writing novels on my rural farm, near the beach, with a big family and LOTS of kids.

 

 

23. If you could change the world in one way, what would you change?

I would give everyone the gift of knowing they’re enough.

 

 

24. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Ohhhhh. If I could live anywhere I’d live everywhere, with a private jet at my disposal.

The Kimberly.

Coffee then wine.

Absolutely nothing.

Humility is everything.
