In the spring of 2019, SUCCESS debuted its first ever women-focused issue, featuring author and entrepreneur Rachel Hollis on the cover. The rest of the magazine, in its entirety, was written by, for or about women, and it proved to be one of the best-received issues we’ve ever done.
Naturally, we started to work on creating a follow-up edition, the first of many, hopefully. The intention is to make this an annual or semiannual franchise: SUCCESS:W—88 pages plus online coverage devoted to empowered, dynamic women from many diverse backgrounds who all of our readers, men and women alike, should be following for ideas and inspiration. You’ll find their stories and perspectives throughout this edition, on SUCCESS.com and across all of our social channels.
To help identify the best of the best stories we could tell in this issue and each one to follow, I’m proud to welcome our fantastic columnist Kindra Hall into the expanded role of Chief Storytelling Officer. Her increased involvement means more great content for you, and our team is thrilled to be working closer than ever before with Kindra.
In the spirit of inclusivity, I’m also proud to have the beautiful and talented Misty Copeland gracing our cover this issue. Like so many media brands, SUCCESS is learning more and more about the need for proper representation in the individuals we profile, as well as the writers who contribute to our platforms. While this has always been our intention, I will be the first to say we can do more. We will.
Thanks, as always, for reading. I hope this issue speaks to you personally and inspires you to continue working to do, be and achieve more.
