9780615494784: Stiletto 911: The Makeover Manifesto

“No matter how bad you’re feeling, you perk up when you have something to strut about—and in. But, while shoes are fun, stilettos represent a challenge. You can’t possibly slip on a pair of four-plus-inch stilettos for the first time and walk the walk without wobbling. Everyone starts in flats, because there’s no challenge to walking around in them—nor do you enjoy the feel of red-hot femininity and admiring glances. You have to work your way up, and the same is true in business: Inch by inch, we get taller. Our confidence rises. We will undoubtedly stumble—that’s called “experience”—but we will never give up.” ***** Morgan Demarest is a twenty-three year old fashion diva who has a passion for shopping, stilettos, and indulgence. But her spree-filled life takes a life-altering turn when her fiery artist lover tosses Morgan and her precious designer wardrobe out of his Chicago loft. Having been raised by well-meaning parents who swooped in and saved the day on countless occasions, Morgan is distraught to find that safety net is now gone. As her self-centered world crumbles, Morgan is forced to take a hard look at her past, present, and future. She begins a surprising journey of self-discovery on the road to a new life—in the company of a 21st century Fairy Godmother who has her own set of rules. This fable for today’s woman also features a series of “Footnotes” with advice, ideas, exercises, and the occasional kick in the big girl panties. ***** “Full of glamour, great advice and pertinent life lessons, every woman who wants to live her life in a spirited, dynamic and individual way should read this book. A thoroughly modern read for today’s woman, I know our customers will love it.” —Gemma Metheringham, Managing and Creative Director of Karen Millen of London

About the Author:

Vivian Valtas Schmidt Vivian Valtas Schmidt is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and author who has a deep passion for helping others. She has a love for family, stilettos, adventure—and not always in that order. Add this to her ability to conquer obstacles and you have a woman who proves all naysayers in the world wrong. After graduating from Youngstown State University, with a degree in Mathematics Education, Vivian earned her MBA from the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University. She holds a teaching certificate, is a Certified Peer Mediator and holds the CLF (Chartered Leadership Fellowship) designation fromThe American College. Vivian is on the Board of Managers for the Valentine Boys and Girls of Chicago and is a member of the National Association of Women Business Owners. She has also volunteered for a variety of non-profit organizations that benefit children. Whether she is hard at work, volunteering, biking across Chicago, skydiving, or spending quality time at home with her husband and son in Chicago, Vivian Valtas Schmidt stands tall in her stilettos and radiates confidence everywhere she goes. Sue Publicover Sue has authored many books, ebooks, articles, and blogs, but you won’t see her byline. She’s a ghostwriter who has written about everything from potty training and foot ailments to Generation Y and social media. She now makes herself visible to the world in this first novel with Vivian Valtas Schmidt. Founder of Wordsmiths, Etc., Sue has been writing for more than 25 years. Sue is also a marketing therapist with a passion for finding creative solutions and helping people unleash their own potential as marketers. When she’s not writing, she can be found strutting her stilettos on the ballroom dance floor, swimming with dolphins or manatees, lounging beach-side with a view of the cabana action, or in search of her next adventure.
