Living Beautifully Newsletter No.18

Living Beautifully by beautiful.business is a regular newsletter to share and inspire a different way of looking at the world: we have all had enough of ugly. As I have travelled over these past few months I become increasingly convinced of the universal nature of beauty. Applied to leadership and legacy we need leaders who can see an alternative to how we live now. Leaders with a point of view that is unapologetic, who only want to build businesses that are regenerative offering an optimistic future. You are, we all are – the humus to building a better world. Newsletter No. 18.
