  • Editor's LetterWe all know that fear has a way of limiting people and their vision, and that it has a pesky habit of scaring the living day lights out of us. We have also come to understand that it is the journey towards your goals that is more valuable rather than the destination that you have chosen for yourself. But by believing in your talents, abilities, and your self-worth you can empower yourself to walk down a much brighter path. Thus by transforming fear into self-determination you can create the very life that you would like to live in by fulfilling all of your dreams and aspirations. This month we have so many talented and inspiring people who have forged the life that they wished to create and have manage to do so with courage, conviction and determination. We have people like Waleed Esbaitah who have researched and put in a lot of effort and time into creating a crowdfunding platform for budding start-up companies within the real estate market. Elia Petridis, who is a well- known Hollywood Indie movie director and writer who speaks about his journey and how he followed his passion for directing and writing movies that inspire people. We also wanted to give youll the opportunity to explore your talents, enhance your knowledge and update your skills by attending conferences such as STEP and ING. Both are going to take place in Dubai within the month of March and are here to provide people with a platform to represent themselves and portray their talents. We highly recommend you to attend either one just as a way to be around other inspiring people who have worked hard and have managed to create a name for themselves using their talents in their own unique ways.
