In an age when our lives are increasingly simplified - (some would say complicated!) - by ingenious technologies, the power of human endeavour seems to be obscured.
I'm always fascinated by the stories of successful entrepreneurs who exhibit courage, resourcefulness and determination. Some of them are featured in this issue's Entrepreneur Report; however, another striking example is that of supermodel and businesswoman Iman, whose IMAN Cosmetics range in SA Destiny is promoting, and who's featured in our Powerhouse Q&A.
As such individuals prove, the difference between those who fulfil their destinies successfully and those who don't is that the former work through their challenges. We hope this issue inspires you to do just that.
