I have read many books on how to succeed in business,
and often, after reading them, I have been left wondering if the
authors' own experiences were relatable to the average person. The
advice in many of the books tended to be either too scholarly or
too complicated to incorporate into real life. The lack of a
better-grounded, reality-based approach to guiding others to
success inspired me to think about my own experiences. My success
in life and business has come in the absence of any extraordinary
opportunity or vision. Mine is a journey from a family of six
children who struggled monthly to make ends meet to a career in one
of publishing's glittering ivory towers. From New York to Paris,
from the world of fashion and beauty to the back lots of Hollywood,
my success has come from "flipping the script" and creating
opportunities where none existed. Flipping the script is my unique
approach to turning tables and gaining control. - from
