“How They Made It in America” Book Tour – let the author be your guide!
Introduction: While covering the issues of prominent immigrant women for the Huffington Post, since April 2013, I came to recognize that these women’s stunning successes set a golden standard for all would-be achievers. Why? On their rise to leadership in their respective fields of expertise, these eighteen women—who became the book subjects—have been learning the rules of the game in business and social practices while facing such hurdles as: a glass ceiling; lingering stigma against minorities and immigrants; motherhood-household responsibilities that fall on women rather than men; and of course, linguistic and cultural integration. How did they make it in the most competitive country in the world? How can we apply their unique survive-and-thrive know-how? I made it my business to write about it and facilitate your learning.
The core of HOW THEY MADE IT IN AMERICA is the questionnaires, interviews, and research of eighteen successful immigrant women conducted by the author.
The book is organized into three sections.
First come the success stories of 18 women “who made” – followed by the exploration of their common denominators, including the Values that drove them to action and success. And finally comes advice on how the reader can make it in America too but with his/her own direction, stride, and pace.
