Unbreakable in spirit, unstoppable by nature, unemployable by choice, Alysia Silberg has triumphed over trauma to blaze new trails in Silicon Valley. This is her powerful and inspiring story."

It all started with a pair of pretty pink roller skates. I was just a little girl, living in Johannesburg, South Africa, my heart set on them. But I knew my parents couldn't afford them. So I formulated a plan.

I started my first "small business," selling old suits on the street until I'd made enough dough for the purchase. The start of my life as an entrepreneur. A life that would rescue me from years of childhood trauma-from abuse, and turmoil, and even a gunshot wound-and eventually bring me all the way around the world, to Silicon Valley. This is my story. A story of pain, and perseverance. Of love and romance. Of the "American Dream" we all gravitate towards like the green light in Great Gatsby.

A story I want to share so that I can inspire you to change your life for the better. To guide you on your own extraordinary journey to personal and financial growth.

So put on your roller skates and get ready-you're in for the ride of your life!

"Once I started, I could not stop. The pages seemed to flip themselves. I was enthralled by Alysia's story as it unfolded. Hidden in plain sight are the lessons we all need to learn to be successful. What could we do if we were just as persistent and willing to learn what skills we have within? This book should be on your nightstand, but don't plan to sleep too soon."
