Although Kim Feinberg has been recognised for all the above, she views success in a very different way:
Success is facing our fears in the most positive way and overcoming them. It is not purely wealth or material possessions or the image that we portray as one of the beautiful people – there are plenty wealthy beautiful people who are also unhappy. Life is a challenge, and it is how you carry those challenges.
