An Entrepreneur's True Story - Narrative Nonfiction 






THE WRITING ON THE WALL
by Marilyn Howard



Amazon's VINE VOICE said,

“I thought this was incredibly interesting and engaging…If you are a woman looking to be inspired
and want to break through your own glass ceiling (or whatever your limits may be), this is the book for you.”



  Review by Jamie Michele for Readers’ Favorite Very highly recommended

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, while
her shooting star continued to rise and illuminate he Manhattan skyline she so dearly loves. 
While reading this well-written, engrossing, and witty memoir,  I often read bits of
advice out loud to my teenage daughter who enjoyed them as much as I did.
And honestly, if you can get a teenage girl to smile you’re knocking it out of the park

Other readers say, "A great read." "Inspiring." "Five stars." "Wow!"

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.

 An exciting treasure hunt unwinds with a penetrating exploration of
the challenges facing women entrepreneurs in the 1970s and today.
