An Entrepreneur's True Story - Narrative Nonfiction

by Marilyn Howard

Prospects were limited but adventures called and opportunities appeared. The author portrays youthful travels,
harrowing legal battles and romantic surprises. Determined her destiny would not be the predicted path for most girls
of her generation, she follows a road less travelled. As events converge, the predictions of a Fulbright scholar from
 India seem to take shape. The route winds through a semester in Italy, breaking through a glass ceiling as art director
at an advertising agency, skiing in Aspen, wandering through Mexico, working in Hawaii and enjoying group houses
in the Hamptons.

New territory is charted in 1970 as a woman entrepreneur in Manhattan with the founding of Creative Freelancers Inc.,
the first central agencyfor freelance commercial artists and writers, and in 1997 it became the first agency on the web.
Marriage to an older, sophisticated New York man made her a mother to two of her own children and three stepdaughters.
Finding herself with a family needing support in Manhattan and great business potential, she knew she needed to learn more.
Her path as an entrepreneur is explained and suggestions are mentored from experiences.

While juggling office and family for over twenty-five years, the unexpected summons and mountains must be climbed.
An exciting treasure hunt unwinds with a penetrating exploration of the challenges facing women entrepreneurs
in the 1970s and today.
