Meet the Author:

Marilyn R. Wilson is a freelance writer, published author and speaker with a passion for interviewing. Her career as a writer began in an unusual way: by answering a Craigslist ad from a NYC magazine. The world shifted when she conducted her first interview—she had found her passion.

Since 2006, she has interviewed over a hundred and fifty people from around the globe, co-owned a local magazine, wrote freelance for others, worked as an editor, published two books and provided author support for her publisher. Her goal as an author -- to give wings to the stories of others and to pay forward some of the many "pieces of gold" received during interviews - bits of wisdom that have changed her life. ​

Personal Opinion:

I LOVED reading this book! Really loved it. Its very inspirational and the author is very open with her vulnerabilities and issues she has had, but she didn't let them stop her from thriving and being the best she could be. A lot of the values she wrote about were the ones I tend to agree with, and I applaud her using the environmental conscientious effort in trying to stem the mass consumerism of the culture.This book came at the right time for me in my life. Also, a very gorgeous and beautiful cover.

  1. Thanks so much for your review. It truly made my day - I got goosebumps. My favourite line - "This book came at the right time for me in my life." This is why I gave this book wings, so it could find the right reader at the right time and offer pieces of gold that they can fill their pockets with.
