Becoming EmPowerful

BY JAMIE FORBES
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 15, 2018

Jamie Forbes overcame his initial fear that he might be re-victimized in telling his story after considering the larger picture. Once he recognized that there was a compelling opportunity to shift the negative power from his experience into a force for good by creating awareness of the issue, reducing the stigma for victims, providing an opening for others to discuss the topic, and reducing the chance that others could be victimized, he became motivated and inspired by the potential.

Jamie used that inspiration to found Hadley Rock Advisors.
