I love Maria's writing style, motivational and funny at the same time, a must-read!

Tremendous effort and pure dedication pays off and Maria's story is a perfect example of that. She kept herself motivated for years, long before becoming an 'overnight success', and turned that motivation into a business by never resting on her laurels. Maria's experiences translate perfectly into motivational tips and guidance to learn from.

Maria is an entrepreneur through and through. She built an amazing brand from the ground up, and I can absolutely relate to her strategy.

Bobbi Brown, Founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

If anyone can show us how to make it happen, it's Maria! She has not only created an international beauty brand, but also uses her success, and failures, to inspire others to make their dreams a reality!
