One of our most inspiring issues to date, we are privileged to have real relationships where incredible women can show up for us and discuss facing their fears and doing it anyway.

Having spoken to so many in this issue, it is for many not the absence of fear in their lives that has driven them forward but the courage to face this and still forge ahead. Big or small, overcoming fear is what will set you on the path to success. Everything we want lies beyond the feelings we think we cannot face, and the things we think we cannot do.

For our cover we are very proud to have partnered with Chaumet and Mona Bin Kalli, someone who has fearlessness in her DNA. We discuss doing life on your on terms in Strength & Beauty.

We also have exclusive interviews with Christopher Esber who shares what it takes to seize opportunities fearlessly, creating pieces that push boundaries and delivering work you believe in, Cut to the Chase on. New York-based, globally renowned jeweller Jennifer Fisher discusses creating, scaling and having the fearlessness to start in The Baller and designer Tamara Ralph discusses being ready to take on a challenge and having the fearlessness to build again in A Serious Comeback.
