The National Bestselling book is filled with inspirational stories of fearlessness and the remarkable people who took bold steps to change the world. From a fourteen-year-old girl who created a nonprofit to safely dispose of prescription pills and drugs; to a man who started a bakery to employ the “unemployable” men and women just released from prison; to an immigrant celebrity chef who figured out how to serve millions of meals to hurricane victims in dire straits, Be Fearless weaves together real world stories from innovators and leaders that readers from all backgrounds can use to be inspired to bring about transformational changes at work, in life and in their communities.

When Jean Case, Chairman of the National Geographic Society and CEO of the Case Foundation, set out to investigate the core qualities of great changemakers, past and present, she found five surprising traits they all had in common. They weren’t wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women chose to make a “big bet,” take bold risks, learn from their failures, reach beyond their bubbles, and let urgency conquer fear.

Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)

The holidays are quickly approaching, and with so many parties, and gifts to buy, your readers will certainly be on the hunt for the most exquisite and pairable wines to toast the occasion. You cannot go wrong with wines from one of the most critically esteemed houses in the world: Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite). Inspired by the authentic French spirit of Chateau Lafite Rothschild in Bordeaux, DBR embarks on a journey that spans the globe, showcasing the iconic family’s century’s old passion for fine wine. Every bottle from the estates of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) is made with the same high standards, delivering wines of elegance and finesse.

CAROThe idea of forming a partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family was born in 1999. Initial enthusiasm quickly became a concrete plan to produce wines that combine French and Argentine cultures and the two signature grapes of each producer: Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Catena family has produced wine for four generations in Argentina and, consequently, it was able to draw on its vast knowledge of the high-altitude terroirs of the Mendoza region as well as its passion for Malbec to find the best vineyards. DBR (Lafite) contributed its centuries-old skills in growing, vinifying and ageing great Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as its know-how in blending different grape varieties to produce one wine that is greater than the sum of its parts.
