Farah Fortune shares the reality of life not the reality of Television. As a business owner, she only employs women in her Public Relations company. She says, "There is no rewind button on life." Passion is the key to making your dreams come true. She used her passion for music to turn her passion into reality.

With a diploma in PR and a business law diploma from WITS University, Farah Fortune has years of experience in the South African PR field, while also dabbling in the media when she lived in the UK.

Asked why she started her own company Fortune said; “I got tired of someone else deciding how much I was worth and I wanted to afford a better lifestyle for myself and my daughter.” In 2014 Fortune won the award for Outstanding Leadership at the Women’s World Congress in India, while earlier this year she was a keynote speaker at the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards nomination event.
