each adventure brings with it
challenges and insights. Running a successful startup attracts ADWEEK
Magazine of New York.
They place her first on their list of "The Dynamic Dozen." It should

Review by Jamie Michele for Readers’
Favorite — Very highly
"Marilyn Howard delivers a strong and
timely autobiography, and it's no
wonder she was able to
fill a whole book with her stories. We're fortunate to have her
share a span of decades, through
her early life, friendships, exciting stories as she traversed the
globe, relationships, legal woes
and government foes, and motherhood. The latter was juggled with the
dexterity of an octopus,

Manhattan skyline she so dearly

memoir, I often read bits of
advice out loud to my teenage daughter who enjoyed them as much as I
And honestly, if you can get a teenage girl to smile you’re knocking it
out of the park."
"Candid, insightful page-turner."
"Just what I needed. Great book!"
"Her writing style is engaging..."
"I often take a lot for granted, as a woman in her 40s..."
"It's a memoir I will want to re-read later on."
