Today, the neighborhood of Leith in Edinburgh, Scotland,
is a bustling coastal hub of commerce and artistry.
But it wasn’t always that way.
Once, Leith was the impoverished hometown where, as a child, Jacqueline Wales dreamed of a rich, wonderful life—a life that even her own family told her she would never, ever have.
At the age of 16, the lassie fae Leith fled first to London, then to America and beyond in a desperate search for a better life – and for her true self. From Leith, to London; from the California coast to Paris, Amsterdam, New York, and Bali, Jacqueline has spent her life learning that being fearless is not the absence of fear, but the courage to take the next step.
And Jacqueline’s journey truly has been defined by thousands and thousands of “next steps.”
Today, Jacqueline is a passionate champion for being fearless. An author, speaker, and trusted advisor to successful women, Jacqueline helps women around the world transform their lives and achieve their goals.
