Georgie-Ann is no stranger to Carry On Friends. Last month she was a guest on the podcast where she discussed the challenges of finding your way as an entrepreneur. That episode and a lot of what Georgie-Ann said about the Caribbean family’s impact on being an entrepreneur struck a cord with many listeners. The reaction came from text messages, emails, Facebook and Twitter.
