It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!" Rocky Balboa

Name: Anna Fairs

Where do you live?
Hampshire, UK

Home town:
London

What do you do?
I’m an artist, photographer and writer. But this wasn’t always the case. I spent 18 years within the IT/Telcoms industry. It was an interesting career but I often felt like a square peg in a round hole. I took a leap of faith back in 2016 when I decided to honour my creative spirit and start my own business. I’m now lucky enough to make a living from things that light me up.

What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about so many things. Creating work that touches someone's soul; helping them feel less alone in their human experience. Helping others realise their potential. Supporting women to rise and create a world where there is balanced leadership. I’m also deeply passionate about the natural world and conserving this beautiful planet we find ourselves living on.

Why are you a member of JAG?
JAG has a special place in my heart. Josani is an inspiring woman and a beautiful soul. l fell in love with the philosophy behind JAG and the community that she is creating. When women come together, we can create magic. And it’s so much more fun sharing your journey with like-minded souls.

What drives you?
My insatiable appetite to live a full and colourful life. Life is short and precious. A gift. And there are so many wonderful experiences to have, places to visit and friendships to make. I strive to become a better person and show my son how he can live a full life and be of service to others. To leave a legacy and to have some fun along the way.

Favourite hobbies:
I’m a voracious reader and read widely, anything from philosophy & the esoteric to herbal medicine and foraging. I love the great outdoors. Being in nature fills my soul and I’m particularly drawn to hills and mountains. I enjoy sailing, traveling and good conversation.

Favourite quote:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

I am excited and proud to be a founding member of JAG because I am always looking to connect and deepen friendships (personal and business alike) with women who are on a similar journey to me.

What are you passionate about? Change; I seek it, embrace it, create it- whenever and wherever possible.

Why are you a member of JAG? Life has truly gifted me with so many “anam cara” the beautiful ancient Celtic notion of soul-friend- a loved one who awakens your life in order to free the wild possibilities within you. Being an anam cara requires of a purposeful presence — it asks that we show up with absolute integrity of intention to be the truest mirror to reflect your soul with the honesty and clarity of true friendship to bring out the real contour of your spirit. This community is started by one of my anam cara, and I see it as a space to connect the many of them I have around the world, and as well an opportunity to create new ones and nurture infinitely more. It is said that no place is foreign if you have a friend there, so I wish to extend being that friend and find new ones in all the places I have yet to call home.
