The Wisdom of Listening

Pieces of Gold From a Decade of Interviewing and Life

Everyone has a story to tell...

The next time you're out in public, take a moment to look around you. Each and every person you see holds wisdom in their pockets--pieces of gold they've accumulated as they walked their own unique life journey.

Within these pages, Marilyn shares some of the many pieces of gold she has received over her decade-long career. They have been offered to her during interviews, through random encounters and while facing difficult challenges. The most important? We are each unique and exactly who we are meant to be.

Are you ready to dig for gold? All you need to do is be brave, be present in the moment and be open to the possibilities--then start a conversation.

Life Outside the Box

The Extraordinary Journeys of 10 Unique Individuals, Second Edition

Real stories about real people to entertain, inspire, and challenge you.

This 2nd edition offers new content - the author's personal reflections on each interviewee.

Get inspired to step out of your box and embrace your potential. From the corporate world, to the arts, to working with the disenfranchised, the message is clear: there is no such thing as a normal way to live your life and no one right solution to any problem.

Selected from over a hundred interviews, the stories shared here open a window on the journeys of seven women and three men who have charted their own paths, including Ruthie Davis—top US luxury shoe designer and the winner of the 2014 AAFA Footwear Designer of the Year Award; and Geir Ness whose perfume is a staple in Nordstrom, Disney World, and on Disney Cruise Lines.

Enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes into the unique ways these individuals have chosen to deal with life's challenges and how they define success in their careers.
