Overview

Get Yourself Going Every Morning with “In Conversation with Exceptional Women”
A must-have addition to your a.m. cup o’ joe this book is inspiring food for thought.

Powerful and insightful, “In Conversation with Exceptional Women” compiles reflections from over 50 influential women (writers, chefs, photographers, moms) on developing – and thriving – as a creative professional.

These real-life conversations are practical, though-provoking and often humorous. You’ll find compelling personal revelations into what matters to many of today’s successful writers: how they got started; what inspires them; what advice they’d give to their former16-year-old selves; and how they stay motivated to keep on creating.

Renowned cookbook author and writer Monica Bhide has brought together this diverse group of fellow writers, chefs and assorted foodies to candidly discuss how they successfully balance their personal and professional lives.
A sampling from “In Conversation with Exceptional Women” includes:
• Ruth Reichl, former Editor in Chief of Gourmet and former restaurant critic of The New York Times: “I wish I’d known that there is a huge hunger out there for good writing, and you can start at the top. Find a good story, write the hell out of it and send it to the best outlets you can think of.”

• Susan Orlean, New Yorker writer and book author on her road to success: “Luck, perseverance, and conviction. I knew what I wanted, and that guided me along.”

• Dorie Greenspan, best-selling cookbook author and winner of several James Beard Foundation awards: “Be open to change. Things rarely go according to plans or wishes, and so often the twists and turns that pop up along the way bring something wonderful –be ready to follow them.”

• Lynne Rosetto Kasper, host of American Public Radio's “Splendid Table”: “Everyone has tough days, and when there is a lot going on, the best thing you can do is to take a break. Turn off the switch in your head – go for a walk, go to the museum, distract yourself any way you can. When you come back you will feel refreshed and ready to take on your problems.”

• Kim Severson, The New York Times, food writer and Bureau chief Atlanta:
“Imagine if the story you have in mind would be something you would want to tell someone else about. If it holds your interest, it will probably interest a reader.”

Also included are: Celebrity Chef Carla Hall (The Chew), Food 52’s Amanda Hesser, Top Chef Host and cookbook author Padma Lakshmi, award-winning novelist Diana Abu-Jaber, Editor-in-chief of Food & Wine Dana Cowin, award-winning blogger Jaden Hair (Steamy Kitchen), pioneering blogger Elise Bauer (Simply Recipes) and many, many more.

This motivating e-book is a perfect guide for anyone embarking on life’s larger path.
