A graduate of Howard University, Monique Greenwood is the owner of the world-famous Akwaaba Mansion Bed and Breakfast in Brooklyn, New York, and its sister businesses, Akwaaba Cafe, a Brooklyn restaurant, and Akwaaba by the Sea, a bedand-breakfast inn in Cape May, New Jersey. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband of twelve years, who still calls her "love goddess," and her nine-year-old daughter, who calls her "cool."From Booklist:
Greenwood, editor in chief of Essence, expands on that magazine's mission of promoting the personal advancement of black women. Successful in her own right, Greenwood describes her job and business pursuits as part of a "life mission," more geared toward personal satisfaction than competitive pressures. She subscribes to the belief that "success is personal fulfillment and satisfaction" and encourages readers to define success for themselves. Still, in true women's-magazine style, the book offers advice on the common elements of success: love life, family, career, and financial freedom. Greenwood recounts her own personal experiences and family history, encouraging fortitude in the face of disadvantages and offering positive affirmations to help maintain the focus on success. She advises taking frank personal inventory, keeping a journal, and providing personal rewards for goals gained, among other strategies for achieving a balanced life. Although the cultural references are geared toward black women, readers of any race will enjoy and appreciate her prescription for a successful life. Vanessa Bush
