About this Episode

If you have a dream that you are chasing, or have been thrown into a position before you felt you were ready, or know what it’s like to be bullied and feel shy and want to grow in self esteem and self confidence, then this one is for you.

I recently sat down with Laura Geitz who is considered as one of netball’s greatest defenders, she led the Australian Diamonds to Gold Medal victories at the Commonwealth Games in 2014 and at the World Cup in 2015. She also captained the Queensland Firebirds to their back to back ANZ Championship grand final wins in 2015 and 2016.

During our chat, Laura shares about:

  • The importance of having people in your life who give you a nudge in the right direction
  • The people who influenced her the most
  • Learning how to receive feedback
  • How sport helped Laura grow from being a shy girl who was bullied at school to a self-confident adult
  • The moment Laura become captain of the Firebirds and then the Australian Diamonds
  • What Laura has learnt about leadership
  • The inspiration she gains from running netball clinics through Fuel2Fly
  • What “Do Life Better” means to her.

Laura’s challenge for the week: tell your parents and/or significant adults in your life how grateful you are for all they do for you.
