Inspired by her New York Times bestseller In the Company of Women, Grace Bonney’s Good Company is the innovative and supportive journal for women and nonbinary creatives at every stage of life, founded on the power of inclusivity, diversity, and celebrating the differences that unite. Its mission is to provide motivation, inspiration, advice, and a vital sense of connection and community. The Fear(less) Issue tackles the subject at the heart of any kind of ambition—failure—with articles from Luvvie Ajayi, Jenna Wortham, Rhea Butcher, and others on how to turn fear into creative fuel, facing the dreaded sophomore slump, the power of co-working spaces to help create a fearless sense of community, and so much more.
The Fear(less) Issue continues Good Company’s mission to provide an energetic and highly stimulating place to connect, learn, grow, and work through the challenges that women across the spectrum experience in pursuing their passions and dreams. We all fail—but it’s how we fail, and how we recover, that separates a positive experience from a negative one. This issue shares words, stories, life lessons, and more as it explores something we all shun, yet which has a power unlike any other to help us succeed.
