Real Stories about Real People to Entertain, Inspire and Challenge You.
Get inspired to step out of your box and into a world full of potential. From the corporate world, to the arts, to working with the disenfranchised – the message is clear. There is no such thing as a normal way to live your life and no one right solution to any problem. Selected from amongst over 100 interviews, the stories shared here open a window on the journeys of seven women and three men who have charted their own path, including Ruthie Davis – top U.S. luxury shoe designer and the winner of the 2014 AAFA Footwear Designer of the Year award – and Geir Ness whose perfume is a staple in Nordstrom, Disney World and on Disney Cruise Lines. Enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes into the unique ways these individuals chose to deal with life’s challenges and how they define success in their careers.
A wonderful uplifting not to mention inspiring read. Ten successful individuals share their challenging journeys of accomplishing their dreams. All ten cases cited share similarities – pursuing their dreams and passions, not letting anything or anyone stand in their way, believing in themselves, unbelievable initiative, most importantly a deep desire to give back in assisting others to achieve their greatness and dreams.
I admire their determination, when doors were closed these individuals stood knocking, whatever avenue proved difficult they were relentless in selecting another path of less resistance or forged ahead on the intricate path with all its twists and turns. They turned to their creativity and stepped outside of the box. Some walked a tightrope risking much demonstrating the fact there are times when you must gamble and hope for the best. A few were in the right place at the right time, experiencing issues but undeterred
The ultimate message – your dreams can become a reality beginning with believing in yourself and pursuing at all costs, let your creativity and desire serve as an unbreakable force. Wonderful read, ten fabulous individuals with differing stories and backgrounds sharing many similarities.

Marilyn R. Wilson is a freelance writer and editor with a passion for interviewing. It all began in 2006 when the she answered a Craigslist ad from a NY magazine asking for story submissions. Two were accepted. The first live interview was life changing and Wilson has never looked back. With over 150 interviews now behind her, the love of interviewing is still as strong as ever. Whether through a random encounter on the New York subway or via a “one-on-one” interview with an internationally recognized artist, the goal is the same—to share the unique journeys of inspiring individuals.
In 2007, this goal led the author to co-launch a successful, innovative magazine focused on professionals working in the fashion industry, paired with photography and illustrations by local artists. Now on staff at Raine Magazine (NY/Miami/LA), as well as freelancing for other publications, Wilson has taken her passion to a new audience with the release of her first book.
