The Most Fabulous Person In New York

I saw a segment on Oprah where she was interviewing moms who created million dollar businesses in their free time while homeschooling their children and thought it was a myth that would demoralize millions of women.

I wrote a segment pitch for her producers called the “Myth of the Mommy Millionaire.” My assistant thought it would be a great book. I emailed it to 6 agents that day and had 2 contracts on my desk by the end of the week.

I’ll never forget the day I got out of a cab on Broadway and looked up at the famous Flat Iron Building, star-struck. I didn’t know it then but I was about to go in and meet the most fabulous person in New York, who would change my life forever. She was one of the biggest franchise makers in publishing, and soon to be my Editor.

Everything begins with a dream, a search for something better, an idea, the courage to face a challenge, and the passion to get it done. You can do it. Believe in yourself. Change the rules. Join the revolution.” from MOMMY MILLIONAIRE
