In 𝘜𝘯𝘦𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘺𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦, Alysia Silberg takes her readers on an inspirational and motivational voyage, from the streets of Johannesburg, the economic powerhouse of Southern Africa, to Silicon Valley, California. Alysia's life was immensely challenging but through the arduous experiences of her childhood, her natural propensity for business shone through in everything she did. She obtained a scholarship to study at an exclusive school which empowered her and paved the way for future success.
Alysia recounts her childhood traumas: the fear and dread that continue to haunt her and the support structure she put in place to help her deal with it are commendable. Her strength and resilience in coping with the unimaginable speak volumes about her character as does the successful acquisition of a pair of pink roller skates she desired as a child: all indicative of the person that she is.
Alysia's natural predilection for business ensured that her circle of influential game changers continued to expand, providing her with the opportunities that she sought in the business world. She created strategic connections which elevated her to successfully leverage her way to the top. This master storyteller manages to deliver an invaluable message within 168 pages which many before her have failed to accomplish.
I was so invested in this book that I had to read it again to take notes. The passion, power and love within its pages are palpable and resonated with my soul like no other before it. Interspersed with a desire to educate and inspire her audience: the author delivers a profound message of hope that all is well with the world. Alysia, if I could present you with a thousand stars, I would do so, but I can only offer you a meagre, five out of five stars, with my only hope being, that you will provide a follow-up to this book. The illustrations scattered across its pages were a feast for the senses and I salute the artist for the skill it entailed.
The professional editing of this book ensured an uninterrupted read from beginning to end. There was nothing that I disliked and I unequivocally recommend it to those seeking a version of hope that they will relate to and which provides a shining light at the end of the tunnel for those unafraid to dream.
