"Juggling work and family? Stop before you drop" heralds Bonnie's book for people who see themselves as successful and wealthy, yet feel trapped. The problem: "successful careers are tearing families apart."

Her solution: "Blending work and family." Bonnie interviewed over thirty people from the Olympics, Wall Street, the White House and other intensely competitive business or academic environments. "Those who had children and stayed sane", she points out, "couldn't talk about work without mentioning their children." She found that regardless of their profession, they all seemed to be saying the same things.

About the Author:

Bonnie St. John has always thrived in situations where the path ahead is not clearly marked, and the competition is intense.

An African-American from a family of modest means, Bonnie became an amputee at age five. Against tremendous odds, she used imagination and determination to push past the limitations of disability and become Silver Medal Winner in downhill skiing in the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck Austria.

Bonnie's other accomplishments include an honors degree from Harvard, a Rhodes Scholarship, multiple awards for her innovations as an IBM Sales Rep, a position on the White House National Economic Council and remarkable success as owner and president of her own motivational speaking business.

NBC Nightly News selected Bonnie as "one of the five most inspiring women in America." She's also been featured on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Charles Kurault, and The Discovery Health Channel In addition, the nation's leading publications, such as The New York Times and People Magazine have profiled Bonnie and noted her extraordinary achievements.

Bonnie is author of Succeeding Sane: Making Room For Joy In A Crazy World (Simon and Schuster) and Getting Ahead At Work Without Leaving Your Family Behind. She speaks worldwide on the topics of winning, teamwork, leadership and change. Her inspiring message of hope and courage is tempered with hard-won real-world wisdom about winning in every aspect of your life.
