What would you do if you had no ‘FEAR’? Have you ever thought about it? Have you ever just sat down and considered what you could achieve, who you could become if only you could just believe for a split second that you had absolutely nothing to loose but everything to gain?
For us the thought of having no fear came in 2012 when the concept and idea for VMM was conceived and birthed out of a passionate desire to promote more inspiring and motivating content that targeted the creative mind. Collaborating with talented individuals all over the world to create a unique brand and online content. With no previous experience in the publishing industry, it has been a battle of sorts to get VMM grounded and up & running but we have learnt a lot over the years and taken it all within our strides. We had nothing to loose then and we have nothing to loose now but everything to gain by eliminating every ounce of the word FEAR from our minds.
The term/word ‘Fearless’ is such an important one for us as we liberate ourselves from everything that has terrified us from taking the risk to grow stronger and better as a brand.
Fear has a menacing way of terrifying us into believing that we are not capable of greatness or we are not equal to the task. But most of the time, it’s an illusion in our minds. Through this Fearless issue, we break down those illusions that have served as barriers and hindered us from taking the steps we need to achieving much more for VMM as a brand and a print publication.
Thank you to everyone that has been a part of this issue. We appreciate you all and your contributions.
