Ruari Fairbairnsmbg Mindfulness Contributor
Ruari Fairbairns grew up on the Isle of Mull in Scotland, where he set up his first business at 16. After a successful career as a commodities broker he one day (after a few failed attempts) finally quit drinking, and it fundamentally changed his life. Together with a colleague he decided to create something to change the stigma around giving up drinking. This became OneYearNoBeer.com, a challenge to give up alcohol and focus on healthy alternatives, featuring a vibrant on and offline community. Fairbairns is now based in Edinburgh.
